NBA Comparison: N/A

Adi Joseph – 12/12/2006

Strengths: Potential is outstanding, especially in faster paced NBA … Athletically, he can compete with anyone … Dunks with authority often … Runs the fast break very well for a power forward… Great length … Good touch around the basket … Has the potential to be a lock down defender … Very good post defender … Has strong shot blocking instincts … Good footwork in the post… Improving jump shot … Developing ability to play on the perimeter … Incredible on the open floor … Can get on a roll and look like a budding star … Has noticeably improved every year of his collegiate career … Strong free throw shooter …

Weaknesses: Has a tendency to disappear offensively at times … Not ready to play full time on the wing, as he would likely be asked to do… Poor rebounder for his size … Not strong enough to play the four in the NBA, and lacks great height at 6’8" … Very passive overall, doesn’t make his presence felt enough … Must work on consistency and getting open … A bit of a tweener, but has the potential make the transition to a wing player …
