Weaknesses: At 6-9, he is undersized and he also lacks great athleticism to offset this size deficiency … Was not in the greatest shape this season, often being the last man up the court and getting winded very quickly … Needs to work on fitness, could stand to lose some weight and put on more muscle … Weight and speed could always be an issue, as even when "in shape" he lacks great speed in the floor or laterally … Was able to get away with overpowering opponents in college, yet questions remain how his game translates against bigger, quicker and more athletic opponents at the next level … At times this season he struggled getting his shot off against taller defenders, more specifically the Lopez twins, Brook and Robin, of Stanford, who forced him into off-balance shots and uncharacteristic turnovers … His one-on-one arsenal in the post is a bit predictable, as he almost always operates on the right block and prefers to turn to his left shoulder often finishing with a right hook … He gets into trouble when trying to do too much off the dribble because quicker defenders are able to slide over and force him into turning the ball over … Defensively he will have trouble matching up as he is undersized and because he has less than ideal lateral quickness … His lack of speed will make it extremely difficult for him to play for a running style of team …
Weaknesses: Thick legs anchor him to the floor to a degree, especially with regard to foot speed and transition game … Has decent quickness, but lacks great speed in the open floor … Better in the half court set than full court but can get up and down the floor when he needs to … Has had a few arthroscopic knee surgeries in his high school career, but hasn’t shown any lingering affects from it …
Notes: Fame appears to run in his genes, his uncle Mike Love was a member of The Beach Boys … father, Stan Love, played two seasons each for the Baltimore Bullets (1971-72) and Los Angeles Lakers (1973-74).
