NBA Comparison: Ervin Johnson

Bobby Palumbi – 2/14/2006

Strengths: A legitimate 6’11 big man with a wingspan that allows him to play bigger Big time shot blocker, especially in transition … Athletic and strong, he can run the floor well and play above the rim … Great hands, catches everything and rebounds well … Very good rebounding technique … Good passer, has the ability to make the necessary pass from the low post Very good at put-backs and cleaning up the glass … Can throw down some thunderous dunks … Has the quickness to leave the paint and alter shots … Has improved his free throw shooting substantially Vastly improved offensive game … Has developed a consistent intermediate (12 feet and in) jumpshot that he did not possess until his senior year …

Weaknesses: Not very polished on the offensive end, partly due to the fact that he only averaged 10, 10 and 12 minutes per game his first three years … Although he has the size to play center in the NBA, he could add more weight and strength … Below average court awareness, gets caught making mistakes in defensive switch-offs Plays inconsistent on the offensive end, his confidence seems to get shaken if he’s not making his shots. Plays timid at times, lacks the killer edge, consistency … Good lateral quickness, but when he gets drawn out of the paint, he’s susceptible to the pump fake which makes his leave his feet early and take some bad fouls … Mental toughness has been a question for him in the past …
