May 9, 2008
Overview: A very talented small forward with the height to make some plays down low and the perimeter skills to play exclusively out on the wing. Great size and length for the perimeter. Solid athlete for his height. Smooth first step and leaping ability. Became a great jump shooter over time. Dynamic offensive player. Wasn't an overnight success in the League. Needed three seasons in the League to begin to blossom as a player after declaring for the draft out of Alief Elsik HS. Came into his own as a star a few seasons later. Has made one All-Star appearance in his career and will have plenty of opportunities to return due to his age.
Offense: A tremendous scorer who can put the ball in the net in a number of ways. Gets more than two fifth of his offense in spot up situations, but will also get chances to go one-on-one, run the break, and use his height advantage in the post. Possesses a tremendous shooting stroke for a player his height. Has a quick release and very good range. Takes a lot of threes, but is rather efficient from deep. Solid midrange and short range shooter as well. Uses his height to get off shots that most players can't. Likes to drive right and get to the basket. Has a smooth first step, but isn't a great ball-handler. Doesn't get to the free throw line at a great rate. Capable scorer in the post. Gets quite a few touches on the left block and shows an ability to knock down turnarounds over either shoulder. Very versatile scorer. Creates numerous mismatches. Decent passer, but doesn't create much offense for his teammates. Average offensive rebounder. Great offensive threat who is even more efficient when playing next to other good offensive players.
Defense: A solid defender who has developed the ability to defend both forward positions with respectable effectiveness. Doesn't always make a great effort, but has the athleticism and length to compensate in most situations. Has many of his mistakes erased by Dwight Howard. Average rebounder. Will use his length to deflect passes when he is out defending the perimeter. His wingspan also helps him contest shots more effective than most players at his position in one-on-one situations. Not going to wow anyone with his defensive production, but is definitely more committed to defense than he was early in his career.
