mickael-pietrus The Draft Review - The Draft Review goldenst The Draft Review - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Athletically he is an explosive leaper capable of creating some impressive dunks ... Defensively he shows above average lateral quickness and long arms to disrupt passing lanes ... Owns a nice hesitation move to gain separation from his defender on drives ... Wonderful finisher in transition where he makes full use of his athletic ability in the open court ... Plays defense with passion and intensity ... Because of his athleticism he does a good job of crashing the glass for rebounds ... When slashing to the lane Pietrus understands how to draw fouls ... Shows 3-point range on his jumper ... Solid post passer... Possess excellent body control to adjust his shot in mid-air... On defense he does a good job of using his quick hands to pressure the ball handler into a turnover ... Is a legitimate threat when moving without the ball on lay-ups or alley-oops ... Creative scorer who can be a hard player to defend when he is on top of his game ... Long arms and Leaping ability make it very hard for opposing players to pass over his head ...

Weakness: Could stand to add a tad bit more upper body strength to his physique ... Not a super shooter from the perimeter especially behind the three point line where he is inconsistent ... Can be a little too flashy for his own good and play out of control ... Needs to improve on shooting off the dribble from mid-range ... Doesn't always drive to the basket as he can settle for the jumper ... Fundamentally he shows a good grasp of the basic's but he still needs further mental development in terms of thinking the game ... Shot selection is a work in progress as he has a habit of forcing things offensively ... Ball handling has improved but could still stand refinement ... His on the court performance still goes through periods of inconsistency ... Some have questioned his maturity but to his credit he has worked on making this less of an issue ... Can be a little too aggressive on defense leading him to pick-up quick fouls ...
