leandrinho-barbosa The Draft Review - Leandrinho Barbosa san-antonio89-04 The Draft Review - Leandrinho Barbosa

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Excellent athlete blessed with great leaping ability and quickness ... A tremendous ball handler able to take most defenders off the dribble ... Creative finisher when he drives in the lane as he can adjust his shot according to how the defense reacts ... For his size he is an explosively quick player... Barbosa's quickness becomes evident when he pushes the ball to ignite the fast break ... Defensively he has the long wingspan and quick hands needed to disrupt passing lanes ... Understands how to create contact on his drives to enable free throw opportunities ... Makes excellent use of the glass when shooting the leaning jumper 16 feet from the basket... Owns cat like body control to get off acrobatic lay-ups ... Shows solid lateral quickness to stay in front of most opposing players ... Great leaper who combined with his long arms can block smaller guards shots ... Shows above average court vision to recognize open teammates on the floor... Quick first step enable him to gain good separation from his defender... A capable 3-point shooter when his feet are set... Solid rebounder thanks to his long arms and leaping ability ...

Weakness: Will need to bulk and gain more upper body strength ... Really needs to focus on refining his shooting mechanics ... As of now he doesn't keep his shooting elbow tight and his release is funny ... Due to his aggressive nature he has a tendency to get out of control when slashing to the basket... Not a great shooter from behind the three point line off the dribble due to his slow release ... Mid range shooting is still a work in progress ... Still developing his point guard skills such as controlling tempo and decision making ... Needs to continue to improve on getting his teammates consistently involved in the offense ... Forces too many passes that are not there due to his lack of patience ... Tends to pick-up quick fouls as he has a bad habit of being overly aggressive with his man ...
