NBA Comparison: Lamar Odom
It has been anything but a smooth ride following Iverson over the years. 2 years ago, he was regarded as a top 3 player in his class. Last year was a different story. He looked slow, out of shape and disinterested to say the least. His legs seemed to have shin splints or or something was slowing him down. What a difference a year makes. He seems to be back in good shape and he displaying the skill and versatility that makes him such an intriguing prospect. He has NBA small forward size with the handle and passing ability of a guard. He is not a jaw dropping athlete and he doesn’t blend his inside/outside game as much as he should, but when motivated, their are few that can match his talent and skill.
Notes: Measured 6’8.5 (in shoes) 202 lbs, with a 7’0 wingspan at the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy
