Shane Battier E-mail

2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Absolutely one of the best defenders to come out of the college ranks in some time can block, steal and draw charges ... Has shown the ability as a leader as he took a very young but talented Duke team to the championship ... As fundamentally sound as anyone in college basketball knows the game's ins and outs ... Team player who is unselfish will dish if a teammate is open ... Has become a very good three-point shooter often he would spot up and wait for J. Williams to set him up .. Gets into great position on the blocks for rebounds .... Posses some guard skills in that his ball handling is good enough to get past most defenders ... Has good timing on his blocks this is important considering he's not much of a leaper ... Intelligent does a lot of little things that won't show up in the box score and most of the time acted like a second coach on the floor for Duke...

Weakness: Not super athletic has gotten this far based on his fundamentals and intelligence ... Goes through periods were his jump shot can be inconsistent ... Doesn't really defend or play very well against physical players ... Can he make the adjustment to playing defense in the NBA after all the NBA is faster and stronger than the college game ... Even though Battier is a wonderful player he has played with tremendous talent at Duke in terms of point guards (Wojciechowski , Avery , and J. Williams)as teammates ...
