DeAndre Jordan E-mail

Strengths: Runs the court extremely well for a player his size as he even outruns some guards … Possesses the soft hands to catch most passes thrown into the post without any issues of bobbling passes … Excellent out of position rebounder because of his length and mobility to track down shots … A budding shot blocking presence with his wingspan and explosiveness … Movements are extremely coordinated showing good agility and fluidness, far from mechanical … Possesses smooth footwork due to his foot speed, which quickly corrects any choppiness he may initially have - a rarity for a post player at this stage in his development … Athletically, Jordan can make plays most players his size can’t even think of with his mobility and leaping ability … Has a great motor in that he attacks the basket aggressively, drawing contact … Understands the value of keeping the ball high … Solid finisher around the basket where his athletic gifts make for flashy dunks … Physically, Jordan possesses the body type capable of adding additional weight without sacrificing his athleticism … Shows good touch around the basket on jump hooks that he is able to make with some regularity … Potentially, he has yet to scratch the surface of his talent and should continue to develop by leaps and bounds in the next 2-3 years …

Weaknesses: Offensively, Jordan’s back to the basket skills are still in the developmental stages … He occasional shows flashes of a drop step or baseline spin move, but is clearly more comfortable with put-backs and dunking the ball at this point – this contributes to his high field goal percentage … Not the best rebounder in his area despite having the physical advantage, as he easily gets boxed out … Still not a dominate force in the shot blocking department because he lacks the trimming and court awareness, but to his credit he is improving … Some have questioned his work ethic and maturity level, so one may wonder if a multimillion dollar NBA contract will distract him … Despite drawing a good amount of fouls his poor free throw shooting denies him from taking full advantage … Upper body strength is still a work in progress as Jordan has trouble establishing position in the post without getting rooted out … Would get more scoring opportunities if he concentrated on getting his body wider in the lane – he should give his teammates a bigger target to passes into instead of having them throw risky lobs … Not the biggest fan of physical contact as he takes some period of adjustment, but not what I would label soft … Intensity level and focus tends to waivers during games … Still learning how to effectively defend in the post without creating fouls … Will be a project for any NBA team who selects him …

Jordan is going to break the heart of some unlucky team.He is simply not mature enough yet to handle the Nba lifestyle,nor does he have the work ethic necessary to become a decent player.

O'Bryant was, I think, a junior, and he still has trouble gaining wgt. Jordan is 250lbs. It's a gamble. I could see both Jordan or McGee being off the board by 13th selection.

I don't know about this guy...not too impressed by what I've seen so far.

2008's version of Patrick O'Bryant? We'll see..
