DraftExpress: Been thinking for a while now that this might be Ben McLemore's best comparison. RT @JaceyZembal Might have to go back to Jason Richardson.

DraftExpress: And there's nothing wrong with that. Jason Richardson made a hell of a career out of that role. Gerald Green didn't.

NBA Scouting Reports, Southeastern Division (Part 1)
May 6, 2008
Overview: A former Slam Dunk Champ who came into his own as a scorer in Golden State and is now the go-to-guy in Charlotte. One of the League’s highest leapers and his physical assets rank him amongst the NBA’s best. Has developed into a great scorer, largely due to the improvement in his shooting touch from the outside. Started working on that part of his game during his distinguished career at Michigan State. Won a NCAA Championship with the Spartans in 2000. Will be looked to for leadership early in his tenure with Charlotte. A consummate professional with a great work ethic and an excellent personality.

Offense: Possesses a mechanical looking jumper that is extremely consistent. Shows great footwork when spotting up on the perimeter. Always shoots the same shot. Gets roughly twenty percent of his offense from each of spot up situations, transition opportunities, and isolations. Not an advanced ball handler, not one to dance with the ball and create for himself at will, but uses his dribble to get into position to score. Drives equally with both hands, but is much more efficient when going left. Struggles pulling up for jumpers when dribbling with his right hand. Doesn’t always square his shoulders when driving that way, leading to misses. Needs to just go right at the rim, take contact and get to the line. Was never considered a great overall shooter in terms of percentage, but has improved remarkably from behind the arc, and from the foul-line. Few players can match Richardson’s open court antics, and he is truly a handful anytime he gets an open path to the rim. Shows good court vision and is a decent drive and dish player as well.

Defense: Uses his tremendous explosiveness to dart into passing lanes, but doesn’t use his athleticism as well as teammate Gerald Wallace. Doesn’t have to guard the opposition’s best player on any given night, which masks some of the mental mistakes that he makes. Shows good anticipation when blocking shots, which he only does from time to time. Does a good job cleaning the glass for his position.
