NBA Comparison: Lance Thomas

Strengths: Labeyrie is a high energy role player who brings rebounding and defense … He is strong on the defensive end and while shorter and addition to his hair has a similar defensive style and skill set as Anderson Varejao, but without the body and all around talent … Has good lateral quickness to switch on the pick and rolls, good agility on the defensive end … Good team defender and help side defense shot blocker … Athletic rebounder … His non stop motor helps him both on the defensive end and on the fast break… Strong offensive rebounder … Team player who looks to make the extra pass … Most of his points will come from put backs, dunks, or hustle points … Added some strength to his frame over the past 2 years …

Weaknesses: Very limited on the offensive end … Questionable feel for the game, although stands out on D … Needs to work on his post moves and back to the basket play … While over the past season there has been some improvement in his shooting touch, he still is not a threat in pick and pop.  His "hyper child" intensity gets the best of him at times speeding himself up too much a la Mark Madsen … 60% free throw shooting, could be better … He needs to harness his passion and intensity and slow the game down…  Does not possess the mentality to be anything other than a role player which can be an asset but limits his potential as a player…
