NBA Comparison: N/A

Borko Popic – 3/24/2008

Strengths: A very smooth offensive player that is able to score from anywhere on the court relying on his finesse and fundamentals … Has tremendously efficient shooting percentages: 55% FG, 45 % 3PT and 81% FT … Fills the stat sheet in all categories with 21.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.8 steals per game … Hes long and lanky which enables him to play bigger than his actual size … Shows range on his shot out to the NBA 3, has a high and fairly quick release with good balance, and also good elevation … Has a hefty scoring repertoire; including nice spin moves, a deceivingly quick crossover, midrange game with runners and pull ups, and is able finish contested in traffic … Shows decent ball handling skills, and for such a good scorer he is very unselfish and a very underrated passer … His feel for the ball allows him to be in good position for rebounds, as well helping him to be in the right spots on the defensive end …

Weaknesses: He currently plays more of the SG position, however with his height he is projected as a PG or at least a combo guard at the next level … He is turnover prone with 2.9 TOs per and can get out of control with his dribble when he is pressured … While he is a decent athlete, he is nothing spectacular and lacks a first step that may give him trouble playing the lead guard … His size and quickness are also an issue because he will have a hard time defending either guard position because of these shortcomings … The fact that IUPUI plays in a small conference may hurt his stock, although he has played fairly well against the better teams on the schedule …

Notes: During his sophomore season he missed the majority of the year because of a broken foot, and there have been rumors that he is currently playing with screws in that foot, which definitely raises red flags.
