2001 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Leader and catalyst for St. John's this past season ... NBA ready body that is strong and slightly stocky but not overly so ... Laser quick first step that he uses to gain penetration to the basket, once there he has no problem finishing with either a lay-up or kicking the ball out to a open teammate ... Quick hands enable him to get easy steals so opposing point guards will need to protect the ball ... Good playmaker who is unselfish and loves to go for the flashy pass to get the crowd excited ... Very confident in his ability feels that he is one of the best points in the country ... Best thing going for Cook is that he is equally proficient in passing whether it's a half court offense or a fast break offense ...

Weakness: Has worked on his long-range jumper but it is far from being consistent ... Turnovers really are a problem but this is a result of his decision making not being mature, often these turnovers accrued when Cook tried to rush things ... There have been grumblings in the past about Cook's attitude some have said that he's a pampered crybaby while I don't believe everything I do think it's safe to say that he isn't the most mature kid ... Shot selection is very questionable took some shots during the season that maybe he should have passed on ... Isn't much of a 3-point threat something that will be a must for him to work on ...

He's attitude will never change. He has been pampered ever since he was in Christ the King H.S. When we played against him and shut him down he was crying on the bench about it.

It's sad because he could've been so much better if he stayed in college at least one or two more years. If he would've stayed and worked on his jumper he could've been a different player.
