NBA Pre-Draft Camp, Day Three|
May 30, 2008
Mark Tyndale stood out for the second straight game with the excellent versatility he brings to the floor. He can really do everything except shoot the ball effectively, whether itís distribute, defend, get to the rim or play his typical energetic and heady style of basketball. He might not get drafted, but could have a chance to stick on some team as there is a lot to like about the way he plays the game.

All-Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, First-Team
April 15, 2008
No player changed our opinion of him more so than Mark Tyndale did this week, who was quite possibly the most consistently impactful player on the floor in the entire tournament, filling up the stat sheet in every which way. The winner of the most inspiring player award for the tournament, Tyndale brought a relentless motor to the game for every second of every game, playing extremely hard on both ends, fully taking advantage of this opportunity to play in front of scouts and executives.
On the offensive end, while Tyndale may not have the most fluid handle in the world, he shows good control, getting to the basket using hesitation dribbles and crossovers, and even playing some point forward at time, as his 7 assists per game here would indicate. Tyndale is a versatile passer, driving and dishing, pushing the ball ahead in transition, and showing the vision to hit an open teammate on the other side of the court. Heís an unselfish player who didnít make very many mistakes here, but his 3.4 turnovers per game on the season is a bit concerning.
In terms of his own offense, Tyndale isnít a huge threat to score, though he does show some skills. His jump shot did not look very good here, but he shot a respectable 71% from the line on the season, along with 37% from three, on a decent sample size of 87 attempts. His mechanics are not very pretty, with a noticeable hitch in his shot and a fairly slow release, while he also gets inconsistent with his motion on pull-ups or when rushed. When heís given the time and space to get his shot off comfortably, though, he has decent success, and this is an area he can and should improve on.
Where Tyndale really excels, though, is on the defensive end, where he plays excellent man and team defense, using his athleticism and strong frame to harass his man and crash the passing lanes, making deflections, steals, and blocks all over the court. He shows good anticipation skills and has excellent hands, while playing a pretty smart game overall. Heís effective on the boards as well, where he has the strength to pull down rebounds in a crowd, and shows the effort level to do so.
Tyndale definitely shows some problems in terms of an NBA future, specifically with his lack of a reliable outside shot and the fact that heís just 6í5, so he has an uphill battle to make and stick in the league. Similar players in his mold, such as New Yorkís Renaldo Balkman, have found niches in the NBA, but he is a bit shorter than those players typically are. Regardless, if he can continue to make impact plays at the pre-draft camp and in summer league, heís someone a team might give a roster spot to, as he brings great intangibles and a nonstop motor to the table, while being a very good athlete as well.
