WEAKNESSES


  • Has problems scoring on the low block against stronger and bigger opponents
  • Must improve his ball handling ability
  • He relies too much on his length to make steals when he gets crossed, which leads to bad fouls
  • Shooting, his biggest weakneess. He needs to work on shot consistency, especially his mechanics and foot positioning
  • Free throw could improve even more
