NBA Comparison: Richard Jefferson

Aran Smith – 4/16/2006

Strengths: Elite level athlete … Extremely fluid and explosive … Blessed with incredible gifts … Prototypical small forward … Has the advantage of being left handed, making him tougher to defend … Has great length for a wing player … Strong competitor … Outside shooting and shot off the dribble have shown solid improvement … Foot speed and length make him a terrific pressure defender … Triggers the press defense well with his speed and quickness … Great attitude, hard worker. Excels in the classroom with a 4.0 GPA … His potential is incredible, but he still needs to gain confidence in his abilities and body strength …

Weaknesses: Still a bit inconsistent shooting the ball from outside, but showing vast improvement … Skills are still raw … Ball handling can be sloppy at times … Needs to add a great deal of weight, right now he can get pushed around inside. Another 20 pounds of muscle will make him a lot stronger on the glass and finishing in traffic …
