Weaknesses: He is a bit undersized for the post, but more importantly his body is very frail … Through his time in college, he has failed to add any substantial bulk to a somewhat soft looking frame … At times he becomes robotic in the way he operates, seeming unsure of his moves … Instead of just playing naturally and taking what’s open, he thinks the game too much … His back to the basket repertoire is fairly limited, especially when he faces bigger defenders, he resorts to shooting tough and offbalance shots … He needs to become more comfortable putting the ball on the deck, because with his size he will surely be asked to attack from the high post … His FT shooting has improved, but he still has games where he is inconsistent … He has not shown the demeanor and killer instinct to carry his team in crunch time, he seems content with taking a back seat (part of the problem is the fact that he gets looked off on numerous occasions by his teammates) …
Weaknesses: At 22 years of age, Gibson is still very skinny so there is some doubt about how much muscle he can add to his thin frame He can be a finesse post guy with his ability to use his length as well as score from midrange, but his inability to bang as a 4 limits his overall potential Gibson will likely look to leave school early as he will be 23 by the next draft, while hes seen as a more NBA ready guy which is a good thing, hes also looked at as a guy with less potential to develop as his body is closer to full maturation at 22 than younger prospects Needs to improve upon his free throw shooting (62%) but has a good stroke
Notes: Gibson was leading the way as USC had North Carolina in trouble in the third round of the tourney last year, but Gibson getting into foul trouble led to UNCs comeback and eventual victory. Gibson was significantly outplaying the Tar Heels post players (Hansbrough and B. Wright)
