nba Chris Daniels 2007 Underclassmen - The Draft Review

Strengths: Has become much more committed to his body off the court this year with his conditioning … The benefits of this have been the improvement of his overall mobility and quickness … Is now a better runner of the floor, although not a speedster … Uses his size to his advantage well when rebounding in his area … Possesses soft hands, rarely bobbles passes thrown into him … A great post passer with sold court vision … Becoming much more accomplished playing in the high post facing the basket where shooting and passing are a must … Has the ball handling ability capable of taking slow centers to the basket … Displays great touch around the basket on lay-ins and put-backs … Has shown some ability to shoot 16 feet from the basket, plus the knack for converting the occasional three point shot … Sheer size and wingspan allow him to clog up the paint effectively … Daniels is an unselfish player who consistently looks to pass to open teammates (but almost to a fault) … Does a decent job of keeping his body between his man and the basket when defending in the post … When Daniels plays with confidence he can be very effective … Solid free throw shooter … Stamina has improved by leaps and bounds from last year …

Weaknesses: Level of competition will be a big hurdle, as the Southland Conference isn’t loaded with NBA prospects … Has little to no mean streak, literally gets out worked in match-ups where he has the physical advantage … Has become way too perimeter oriented to such a degree that opposing teams don’t have to worry about foul problems … Plays like a guard - spent this past season working on dribble moves instead of developing better back to the basket skills … Lacks the explosiveness and timing to become a great shot blocker on the next level … This also hurts him when trying to rebound out of his area and as a help defender … Doesn’t do a good job of getting his body wide in the post nor establishing position … Frustratingly inconsistent player who does not give the appearance of a legit NBA prospect every single night … Intensity level is extremely low to the point that you wonder how important the game seems to him off the court … Prone to mental breakdowns in crucial moments of a game … Despite the marked improvement of his foot speed, post footwork leaves a little to be desired … Has strayed a great deal from the post to the point that opposing teams in his conference don’t double team him like they have in the past … Lacks the basketball IQ and court awareness that many seniors in college possess …
