NBA Comparison: Charlie Bell

Strengths: One of college basketballs top combo guards … Pure scorer … Has a beautiful jump shot with good mechanics … Has a good release and follow through with a good lift … Excellent range, NBA caliber 3-point shooter … Has a smooth mid range game when he uses it … Has the ability to break his defender down off the dribble … Deceivingly quick … Terrific penetrator … Has the ability
to set up teammates … Has shown glimpses of being a good assist guy with his 4.1 average after his redshirt year … Superb finisher … Uses his body well to finish in the lane through traffic … Loves to use both hands at the rim … Uses his left hand as good as anyone in college basketball … Has decent quickness and athletic ability to be a good defender … Quick hands on top of the zone allows him to get easy steals … An intense competitor. .. Vocal leader … Wants to win … Doesn’t back down from a challenge … Set a Big East tournament scoring record with 84 points in 4 games …

Weaknesses: Lacks a true position at the next level. An undersized NBA shooting guard … Can he play the point guard position at the NBA level is a big question … Decent but erratic ball handler … Not the best set up guy … Averages only 3.2 assists for his career to 2.9 turnovers … Decision making is questionable at times … Sometimes goes for the spectacular pass when the simple one is
there … His defensive skills are hidden in the Syracuse 2-3 zone … Occasionally gets beat against dribble penetration … Doesn’t seem to focus on the defensive end as much … Has a cockiness to him which allows it to get the best of him at times … Sometimes gets in altercations with opposing players … Born in 1987 so he;s old for his grade … Has had off the court issues which have severely impared his character in scouts minds …
