NBA Comparison: Allan Houston

Aran Smith – 1/29/2006

Strengths: One of the top shooters in the college game … Prototypical 2-guard for the NBA … Mechanics and release on his shot are tremendous … Has shown the ability to take over and win games with his shooting and playmaking ability … Clutch player who steps up and shows no conscience shooting the ball when the game is on the line … Has great genes for the game as he is K-Mart’s half brother and the athleticism did not miss him … Extremely long and fluid athlete with a smooth offensive game … Good leaping ability which will only get better as his body matures … He is adept at creating shots for himself off the dribble … His mid range game is very advanced … Extremely long arms give him added length … Picks up a lot of steals with great speed and anticipation … Possesses an excellent feel for the game, especially offensively … Has worked hard on cutting down turnovers as his improved A/TO ratio attests … Has excellent upside …

Weaknesses: Must show the passion and hunger to play up to his abilities every time out … The game comes so easily to him that he can get by on natural ability so staying focused and working hard to improve is key for him … Still needs to become stronger physically … Added strength will give him more ability to take the ball inside and finish … Developed a bit of a soft rap from scouts after starting his sophomore season slow, but has responded well … Must show the ability to play well against top level teams and players … Free throw shooting should be better for such a great shooter (roughly 70%), needs to put in work to improve upon it …

Notes: Led Colorado in scoring as a freshman … Half brother is Denver Nuggets star Kenyon Martin.
