NBA Scouting Reports, Central Division (Part One)
April 24, 2008

Overview: A veteran scorer who has tremendous perimeter scoring abilities despite his only decent athleticism. Good size and bulk for a shooting guard. Does a decent job getting up and down the floor. Plays above the rim when he has space, but isnít an explosive leaper. Suffers a lot of injuries. A tremendous shooter from the outside. Has all kind of offensive moves to get open shots on the perimeter. Great scorer. Smart offensive player. Doesnít bring a lot to the defensive end. Has a great career at Miami of Ohio. Won the MAC Player of the Year Award as a senior in 1999. A very good offensive specialist. Currently playing under a big contract. Son of former ABA player and Spanish basketball legend Walter Szczerbiak.

Offense: A very dynamic offensive specialist. Gets almost half of his offense as a catch and shoot player. Possesses an incredibly reliable jump shot. Loves the three ball. One of the most efficient catch and shoot players in the League. Lights out when heís open. Displays tremendous effectiveness off the dribble as well. Shows great touch from absolutely everywhere. Uses all kinds of spins and fakes to get his shot off. Very polished perimeter game. Will take the ball to the rim on occasion, and has the athleticism to finish at a decent clip. Isnít a dynamic scorer at the basket, but is more than passable. Goes to the line at a decent rate and shoots a great percentage. Solid ball handler and passer, doesnít turn the ball over nearly as often as he used to. One of the top specialists the game has to offer. Puts points on the board in a hurry.

Defense: A mediocre defender who doesnít have the athleticism necessary to make an impact. Will give a decent effort on the defensive end, but tends to be focused on scoring. Doesnít create many turnovers. Not much of a presence on the glass either. Average half court defender due to his lack of lateral quickness. Definitely not playing because of his defense skills.
