2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Possesses an NBA ready body capable of taking the physical post play of the NBA ... Tremendously strong player able to get great position on the blocks ... Doesn't have many low post moves but does have a solid hook shot in the lane and a quick spin move ... Excellent rebounder who really does a great job of boxing his man out... Because of his upper body strength Uche is able to absorb contact and finish ... Mature player with a great work ethic ... Has improved in every aspect of his game each year... Takes little time to execute his post moves ... Owns a great set of strong hands capable of snaring offensive rebounds ... When you consider his size and strength he is a great runner of the floor... Plays every game with intensity and hustle ... Crashes the glass hard for offensive rebounds, where he gets a decent number of his shots on put-backs ... Shows surprisingly above average quickness and mobility in the lane ... Plays within himself and rarely tries to exceed his ability on the court ...

Weakness: Age will play a big role in where he goes in the draft... At 25, some may not view him with much potential... Lacks the explosiveness needed as a leaper to be a shot blocking presence in the NBA ... Post defense is solid but he still allows opposing forwards too much space on the block ... He will need to work on denying post position better... Must expand his shooting range out to 16 feet where he doesn't possess much consistency ... Gets a lot of free throw opportunities but because of his below average free throw shooting his isn't able to take full advantage ... Post footwork has improved but could still stand to be refined ... Has a tendency to play overaggressive defense leading him to pick up quick fouls ... Upgrade in his back to the basket moves is necessary as they are limited and predictable ... Puts the ball on the floor a little too much when in the low post... Double teams can disrupt him into turning the ball over...

nba Early Entries - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Has a nice soft touch around the basket and uses an assortment of short turnaround jumpers and hook shots to score ... Does a good job of getting open on the blocks by keeping his body wide and using his weight to get into good position ... Takes up great space in the lane at 7-1 285 pounds, not many players can overpower him ... Decent shot-blocker that does a good job as a help defender... Once an offensive player commits to going in the lane Marcus uses his excellent timing to either redirect shots or get the block... Excellent work ethic which is mainly responsible for his remarkable ascent to the player he is now ... Excellent rebounder who uses good technique to seal his man off and is blessed with good hands to engulf any boards that might come his way ... For a player his size he runs the court fairly well... Despite only playing organized ball for 4 years, Marcus has surprisingly good post footwork ... Has a good body that can absorb contact and draw fouls when in the lane ...

Weakness: Still learning the fundamentals of the game ... Doesn't really have much of a face up game and could stand to expand his shooting range out to 14 feet... Athleticism is somewhat limited as he doesn't get off the floor that quickly, so one has to wonder how this will effect him in terms of rebounding and shot-blocking in the NBA ... Doesn't recognize double teams which really hurts because when they occur he lacks the passing ability to pass out of them without resulting into a turnover... Lateral quickness is still a step behind although this has greatly improved ... While he draws contact (fouls) in the lane, Marcus lacks free throw shooting ability to take full advantage of it... Has a bad habit of keeping the ball low after an offensive rebound or catching a lob in the post enabling smaller players to get a swipe at the ball... Development was hindered due to his lack of mobility that was the caused by his foot injury ... Will he be injury prone?

giorgi-shermadini Early Entries - The Draft Review
  • Name: Giorgi Shermadini
  • Position: Center
  • Height: 7-1 (2.16m)
  • Weight: 250 (113kg)
  • Pro Team: Union Olimpija (Slovenia)
  • Nationality: Georgian
  • Birthplace: Natakhtari, Georgia SSR, Soviet Union
  • Birthdate: 4/2/1989
  • Drafted: Declared for the 2008 NBA Draft but withdrew... Automatically eligible for the 2011 NBA Draft but was not drafted by an NBA franchise...
nba Early Entries - The Draft Review

Background: The game of basketball in Mtskheta (in the Republic of Georgia) is well liked, yet is a difficult sport to gain acclaim, as coaching and resources are limited. At the urging of his parents, Shermadini was introduced to basketball agent and former coach, Jamlet Khukhashvili. And through personal coaching and interaction with his older brother, Joso, who is also a professional basketball player, Shermandini improved his game.

In the next three years he dominated the Republic of Georgia's top professional league, averaging 32.6 points, 16.5 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game. His stats were tremendous averages that sounded like old fish tales. But what was once viewed as an absurd internet rumor became fact when actual game clips where posted on the YouTube, showing Shermadini score an amazing 76 points in one game. He is also credited with scoring 52, 54, 60 and 89 points in other games during those three years.

With news of Shermandini’s feats circulating through the basketball community, Nike invited him to join the world team in its prestigious all-star game, the Hoop Summit, in 2007, yet an injury to his meniscus required surgery, causing him to decline the opportunity.

In 2008 Shermadini declared for the NBA Draft, but later withdrew due to concerns with his injury and his level of competition which caused many to believe his stats were inflated and did not give a true representation of his abilities. Seeing that his critics would always have an issue with the lack of talent in his home country, Shermadini and his coach/agent Jamlet Khukhasvili signed a contract with Greek powerhouse Panthinaikos.

While his playing time has been sporadic, head Panthinaikos coach Zeljko Obradovic has brought him along very slowly these past two seasons. Shermandini’s numbers may suggest he is a bust among better competition, but when you dig deeper you'll find that Panthinaikos, at the urging of Coach Obradovic, made sure the team restructured his contract to include more money and years. With this newfound commitment by the team, many are anticipating a substantial year for the Georgian big man.

nba Early Entries - The Draft Review

2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: At this stage in his development he is a defensive minded center who looks to rebound and block shots when he's in the game ... Has all the physical tools that great shot blockers have: lateral quickness, leaping ability, long arms, and good timing ... Thanks to his above average athleticism he can keep up with most players as he is an extremely mobile player who can run the floor... Attacks the glass for rebounds by using his body to gain position and using his long arms ... Due to his great offensive rebounding ability, he generates the majority of his points on other player's misses by put-backs or dunks ... Has loads of potential which adds to his stock as he has only played organized ball for a limited period of time ... Scoring isn't a big thing to him as he can make a impact in a game with his shot blocking ... What's even more impressive is the amount of shots he redirects ... Has an NBA ready body which could still fit 10-20 pounds of muscle without effecting his mobility...

Weakness: Still learning the fundamentals ... Defensively he often finds himself in foul trouble as he can be over-aggressive ... Post footwork remains unrefined although this is to be expected when you consider he has only played organized ball for 4 years ... Offensively his game is basic and not very diverse so adding some variety to his low post repertoire such as up and under's, hook shot, and a drop step would help considerably ... Although he has the ability to absorb contact in the paint and draw fouls he doesn't take full advantage of his opportunities due to his poor free throw shooting ... Possess average touch around the basket and lacks range on his jumper away from the basket... Is very susceptible to double teams doesn't pass out of them well and doesn't recognize them quick enough ... Must become better disciplined as with most great shot blockers Okafor has a bad habit of trying to go after every shot... The team who drafts Okafor must realize that he is a project first and not to expect any quick returns ...
