NBA Comparison: Joel Bolomboy

Strengths: Mathias is an athletic PF with NBA body, with nice upside for the next level … Plays above the rim and does not shy away from the contact/will score under the pressure for plus one … Very effective in P&R situations, catching the ball early and attacking the rim with power … Sets hard and strong picks and reacts quickly … Explosive off the ground going off one or two feet … Catches lobs and alley-oops easy … Huge wingspan  (7’-foot) helps him to score over bigger opponents … Smart using his upper body around the rim … Does a great job at fighting for position on the low block and sealing his defender under the basket to catch the ball closer to the rim … Solid moves around the rim … Quick in transition; after the rebound he is quick to sprint and beat his defender for easy dunks or layup … Rebounds the ball strong and likes going after the ball … Possesses good timing for block shots (2.2 BPG) and it is very difficult to score over … Defensively he can guard multiple positions … On the defensive end he doesn’t have problems switching on P&R because he can move his feet quickly …

Weaknesses: Slightly undersized for next level as a PF/C … Struggles with his shooting overall 59% FT … Lacks range. Mathias has to learn how to score outside low post and paint … He has to become a more effective shooter from mid-range/perimeter (15feet). Become a better ball handler … Not a smart defender … Can get in foul trouble quickly because he is not disciplined with his feet … Will try to block every shot … Can try to do too much at one time with the ball in his hands … Loses balance and shoots off balance on the low post at the time, has trouble with coordination … Not great with passing skills and court awareness on the floor …
