I'm looking to get a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of our 5 young small forwards? I've been trying to read up on them and watch the youtube highlights to get a feel for what we may have, but it doesn't seem very obvious to me. Also, I'm trying to figue out what Joe is doing here. Seems crazy. Here is my tentative understanding (with research to help): Sharpe- DraftExpressProfile: Walter Sharpe, Stats, Comparisons, and Outlook My summary- Pros: he's extremely athletic, has some natural moves on offense, and has jumping quickness (like Amir did). Cons: Can overdribble, and lose poise. On defense, he is currently a liability both mentally and phsyically. This also limits his rebounding. Daye: DraftExpressProfile: Austin Daye, Stats, Comparisons, and Outlook My summary- Pros: he is tall, has a large wingspan ala Prince, is a very good shooter, can create shots for himself, can dribble well for his size, and is a better than average passer. Cons: he is slow (worst in the draft in the combine), he is weak, his frame may not allow for future weight gain, he gets beat off the dribble, finds himself in foul trouble (ala Amir), and has a bit of a Sheed complex with the whining, complaining, sulking, etc. Washington- DraftExpressProfile: Deron Washington, Stats, Comparisons, and Outlook My summary- Pros: athetic, decent all-around offensive player with OK jump shot, good body control, and he finds his way to the rim. Potentially a very good defender, especially by pressuring the ball. Cons: Needs polish, doesn't use his left hand when dribbling, can't defend in the post, has had some attitude issues and has been accused of being selfish at showcase type events. His youtube dunking highlights look pretty sweet. And he supposedly had a good year overseas. Summers- DraftExpressProfile: DaJuan Summers, Stats, Comparisons, and Outlook My summary- Pros: Good athlete, has 3-point range, played PF in college, finishes well, and has good defensive potential. Cons: Poor ball handling, trouble creating, poor passer, poor rebounder, can be passive. Jarebko- DraftExpressProfile: Jonas Jerebko, Stats, Comparisons, and Outlook My summary- Pros: He's tall, he's gaining muscle, he can shoot with range, he plays smart/ mature, and he has good defensive talent. Also, he played in a physical league in Italy... so has some experience. Cons: He can't dribble, he can be too passive, he doesn't create for others and doesn't get to the line. Please add to this however you can. The goal is to figure out what we have and why we have so many. Is Joe so desperate for a backup SF that he's having 5 guys try out for the position throughout the year in the hopes that at least one will break through?
