NBA Comparison: Shawn Marion

Aran Smith – 11/28/2005

Strengths: Agile bigman with great leaping ability … Feathery touch out to 12-15 feet … Has a very nice turn around jump shot …Spectauclar dunker, his explosiveness and quickness getting off the ground is unrivaled among college post players … A super shot blocker due to his long arms and explosiveness … Runs the floor well … Huge wingspan … Has good hands for rebonds and catching passes … Plays with good energy, loves to dunk … Extremely long arms plus great lift make him a monster on the boards and allow him to play much bigger than 6-9 … Plays with great intensity, has an edge to him … Excellent passer, great vision … Great upside …

Weaknesses: Unproven, must prove himself on the college level … Must put on a good deal of weight as he can be pushed around due to lack of bulk . He needs at least 20-25 pounds of muscle … How well he weight trains and maintains his agility will be huge … He’s so talented he can get away with not hustling or working hard, so staying intense and focused is important … Needs to become better conditioned, gets winded easily … Has a bit of a hitch on his free throw shot … He’s a risky pick because it’s uncertain how his body will turn out. Will he be able to add the weight?

Notes: Redshirted his first year at LSU after sustaining a neck injury.
