NBA Comparison: Brad Lohaus

Strengths: Versatile bigman. Seldom seen combination of size, scoring ability and athleticism … Excellent and strong 6’11 frame with solidly muscular 240 lb body … Very good shot blocker … Explosive qathlete for a European player … Runs the floor like a deer … Deep range on his jumper … Owns a quick first step … Good pick and roll defender due to his good footwork and long arms … Cerebral player. Rarely gets out of control. Solid decision maker … Outstanding court vision for a bigman, excellent passer … Emotional leader of his club team … Is shooting 40% on threes so far in 09-10 and 60+% from the field … Very good free throw-shooter (80%) … Is leading the league in blocked shots … Shows the ability to stretch the floor with his outside shooting accuracy …

Weaknesses: Passion for the game has been questioned. For a player with such physical gifts and excellent skills, it’s a wonder he isn’t a more dominant player … Sometimes too unselfish … Very athletic, but a little mechanical … Ball handling could use some work, at tries to do much off the dribble … Tries to be too versatile, does a lot of things well offensively but should concentrate on a few low post moves and perfect a go to move …

Simon Dresden 4/20/10

Strengths: The next big prospect out of Germany after Dirk Nowitzki Excellent fundamentals Very good shooting mechanics Has a nice frame, with big, strong shoulders Can put on a lot of weight Very versatile Can play any of the 2-5 positions Exceptional at running the floor An explosive leaper with quickness and athleticism Hits the three consistently when left open An athletic shot blocker with good timing Finishes well around the basket Has a nice repertoire of moves in the paint. Possesses good vision and passing skills.

Weaknesses: Needs to improve on his help defense as he picks up too many senseless fouls when helping out teammates Should become more selfish and demand the ball more Inexperienced, has not played a high level of competition yet, but has been dominant at the younger levels Still very young, but will need to get a lot stronger, so maintaining his agility while adding strength will be important.

Aran Smith – 9/27/2004

Notes: Had the chance to meet his idol Dirk Nowitzki and got a pair of shoes Has offers from teams in South Europe transfered to Bamberg prior to the 2006/07 season, and will likely play for Bambergs farm team Breitengüßbach.

    Is he good in the high post? He wouldn’t necessarily need any low post moves if he can be a good high post guy.

  2. I love how you refer to Tim

    I love how you refer to Tim as a versatile ‘bigman’. Considering his height, he is pretty agile! You also mentioned that his intergrity of the game has been questioned … I don’t remember this. Can you give me some more information?  Thanks!
