chris-bosh The Draft Review - The Draft Review toronto The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: For his size he is able to run the floor with great speed ... Shows a very soft touch on jump hooks and lay-in's ... Possess great foot speed and lateral quickness to maneuver around the lane ... Possess all the natural instincts to be a shot blocker... Has a nice 10 foot turnaround jumper he can make despite heavy defensive pressure ... When posting up Bosh does a great job of getting himself wide in the post... Can take his defender 17 feet out and sink the mid-range jumper... Not a bad 3-po/nt shooter for his size... Keeps ball high when receiving it in the post... Finishes extremely well around the basket where he can dunk with flair... Smart kid who looks to have a great handle on the fundamental aspects of basket... For his age he shows great timing on his blocks as he doesn't bite on a lot of pump fakes ... Owns a pair of soft hands that allow him to catch most passes thrown into the post with ease ... His athleticism and agility enable him to make some very difficult shots around the basket... Mobility allows for him to be a great help defender if one of his teammates get beat... Not a bad ball handler for his size and position ... Does a good job of kicking the ball back out when the defense collapses...

Weakness: Needs to concentrate on gaining more weight and upper body strength ... Because of his lack of upper body strength Bosh tends to get pushed off the blocks ... Shot selection is solid but he is still figuring out what his strengths are offensively ... Back to the basket skills are in the developmental stages ... Can sometimes rush himself in the execution of his offense ... Like most young players he still has a tendency to put the ball on the floor after receiving it in the low post... Should work on keeping the ball high to limit turnovers caused by guards doubling down ... Struggles at times to consistently make the mid-range jumper... Ball handling and better ball protection need to be worked on as he can be a little turnover prone ... Doesn't always create enough contact in the post to draw fouls ... Needs to be better conditioned this would greatly improve his stamina ...Has some problems finishing after contact occurs ... Gets out of rebounding position at times due to his habit of trying to block every shot... Can coast through games rarely showing intensity or mental focus ... Post footwork is still a work in progress as he can move a little awkward at times ...
