NBA Comparison: N/A

Adi Joseph – 1/8/2007

Strengths: His combination of shooting ability and athleticism makes him intriguing … When his shot starts falling, he can fill up a box score … Has range out to 25-plus feet … Can really jump, and is known for crowd-pleasing dunks … Has improved his defensive play, and gone from horrible to average … Very strong free-throw shooter … Hustle player who enjoys running on the fast break … Good physique for a guard … Has potential based on jump shot and athleticism alone … After a junior year where his passion was questioned, has shown more effort and intensity in his senior season…

Weaknesses: Cannot create for teammates or himself, which is a real negative at the guard position … Ball-handling and passing are poor, even for an off guard … Too trigger happy from the outside … Is an incredibly streaky shooter … On the ball defense is suspect, and he can be broken down by a good ball-handler … Does not run off screens very well … If his shooting is off, doesn’t do anything else well enough to help a team … Does not show well rounded athleticism aside from dunks … Doesn’t display the basketball IQ expected out of an ACC senior … Might be closer to 6-4 than 6-5 …
