luke-ridnour The Draft Review - The Draft Review seattle The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Possesses a great understanding of the game ... Really looks to get teammates involved in the offense ... Has legitimate three point range on his jumper ... Solid shooter of the dribble from mid-range ... After Ridnour breaks down the defense on his penetration, he is a threat to dish off to open teammates ... Shows the kind of court vision that enables him to be a creative passer ... Great free throw shooter ... Has all the qualities that point guards need: PG mentality, court awareness, desire and leadership ... Quality ball handler who can take opposing guards off the dribble ... Really looks to push the ball up the court to ensure fast break opportunities for his team ... Defensively he is blessed with quick hands and the savvy to play the passing lanes for easy steals ... Is a gym rat who has the kind of desire and work ethic coaches love ... Excels in an up tempo offense where his flashiness and creativity merge ... When his jumper is falling he can put a great deal of pressure on the opposing defense ...

Weakness: Will have to improve on getting his upper body strengthened ... Athletically he is not the possessor of blinding quickness or leaping ability ... Some have questioned Ridnour toughness ... Lacks the explosiveness needed to consistently penetrate to the basket at will ... Decision making isn't always the best as he will tend to make the overly flashy play which usually leads to turnovers ... Defensively Ridnour struggles to guard physical point guards, especially those with post up abilities ... Mid-range shooting isn't as consistent as one would like ... Many have questioned his toughness because there have been times where he's been bullied and did not react well to the physical contact ... Defensively his overall lateral quickness will have to be improved upon ... His lack of strength tends to work against him as he doesn't always finish after contact in the lane...
