Weaknesses: Defensively he may struggle to defend more athletic shooting guards as his lateral quickness is average at best Tends to get caught up in shooting from the perimeter instead of driving the lane and drawing fouls. Should concentrate on becoming more aggressive using his athleticism to attack the basket Ball protection is a work in progress as Belinelli can get careless with the ball Does not make much of an impact on the glass Needs to continue to work on conditioning as he shown the tendency to get worn down as the season progresses Court vision leaves a little to be desired Doesnt convert shots when contact occurs on his drives due to his lack of upper body strength Belinelli can go through streaky periods where he struggles with shooting consistency
Weaknesses: Needs to increase his body strength and weight, without losing speed and quickness, to absorb physical contact and defend bigger guards. Also needs to learn many aspects about the PG position at high level as he accustomed to playing with poor quality teammates (in young division) and taking all the shots. Another weakness is the low experience although this should be no surprise considering his age.
