kirk-hinrich The Draft Review - The Draft Review chicago The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Has a tremendous understanding of the games fundamentals ... Excellent three point shooter off the dribble or when his feet are set... Possess above average court vision capable of recognizing most teammates on the floor... Shows great change of direction speed to get past defenders on fast break opportunities ... Extremely aggressive in transition where he is a great finisher... Understands how to shield off his body from the defender... Hustler who will dive on the floor for loose balls ... Great post passer... Solid controller of the tempo of a game ... Defensively Hinrich has the savvy to play the passing lanes for easy steals ... Owns great size for a point guard at 6-3 ... Doesn't force many shots in the lane as he will usually dish off to an open teammate ... Looks to push the ball up the floor on every possession ... Really works hard to track down long rebounds ... Clutch player who wants the ball in his hands when the game is on the line ... Is able to shot consistently off the dribble from mid-range ... Has developed into a solid shooter when running off screens ...

Weakness: Upper body strength will need to be improved as the NBA will be more physically imposing than college ... Athletically he is adequate but doesn't have the best lateral quickness to guard athletic point guards ... Has a habit of sometimes getting too carried away from shooting behind the three point line ... Doesn't do a great job of penetrating to the basket when his team is in a half court set... This can be improved if he work on getting a quicker first step ... Doesn't always finish after contact is made ... Prone to picking up fouls when he has to match up defensively with an athletic player... Ball protection is improved but still a little prone to turnovers ... Toughness has come under fire thanks to some of his early season performances ... Still learning how to create for himself off the dribble on isolation plays ... Settles too much for the jumper which could be due to his lack of penetration skills ...
