NBA Comparison: Robert Pack

Strengths: Hard-nosed Chi-town point guard, has an older brother Jannero in the NBA, and he’s the more athletic of the siblings … Solid size at point guard position at 6-2, 219 … Great leaping ability especially in the open court … Has a knack for rising and flushing over much taller defenders for highlight reel dunks … Attacks rim with tenacity and uses his upper body strength to shield off opponents … Creative ballhandler with a deadly crossover dribble and crowd-aweing moves … Deadly first step off the dribble … Developing passer who raised his average to a solid 6+ asts/game with 2-1 turnover ratio … Unselfish player who seems to have bought into Mark Few’s coaching philosophy … Solid defensively with potential to become a defensive factor … Works hard on defense and anticipates well averaging 1.4 steals per contest … Has made a solid transition from shooting guard to point guard position …

Weaknesses: Point guard skills still need a lot of work … Will likely always be more of a scoring point … Below average shooter especially from 3-point range at 25% … Free throw numbers also aren’t great at 67% … Can be out of control and force unnecessary shots at times … Sometimes seems to switch back to his playing days as a shooting guard … Can be turnover prone at 3.3/gm … Seems to be too right hand dependent … A very intriguing prospect with his size and athleticism at point guard, just needs to learn to slow it down and run the show more under control yet attack when necessary … Development (particularly PG skills) in 2008-2009 season will be key to draft stock …
