NBA Comparison: N/A

Vinicius Panerari – 3/7/2008

Strengths: Jason is combination of American physical style and a South American understanding of the game. His father was a former American player and he was born and grew up playing in Uruguay … He has become one of the best players of his generation and gone to Spain to play for a team with a strong tradition, Estudiantes of Madrid … Very strong and skilled player, good size and great body for a PG. He’s tall but very explosive and quick … He knows how to use his body against smaller defenders and can beat defender off the dribble despite his size … Has a good wingspan and strong hands, can control the ball in any situation … Can get to the basket for lay ins or shoot the ball from the 3-pt line … He normally shoots the ball on balance and loves the fast break situation, can drive to the basket or pass the ball to a open teammate … Very aggressive , putting a lot of pressure on the defense and knows which situation to score. Has a very consistent mid-range game, great penetrator and great first step … Has a great motor, competes hard and doesnt back down, excellent mentality … a general on the floor, is not afraid to make decisions and loves to compete in top level competitions … On defense, he usually help with some rebounds and good presence, has a great attitude and is a hard working kid.

Weaknesses: Needs to improve his PG skills, he still is a PG who thinks of shooting the ball first and passing second … A little bit selfish and despite his good attitude doesn’t always make the best decisions for his team … Needs to improve his on ball defense, doesn’t use his body and legs to defend quicker opponents … Must improve his shot selection and consistency, and he must continue to improve in the half court set …
