NBA Comparison: Isiah Rider/Bonzo Wells
Everytime I watch Shabazz Muhammed play, his overall skill set and athletic abilities reminds alot of a young, very athletic, and offensively skilled Isiah Rider and Bonzi Wells. Like those players shabazz is a big time scoring threat who plays with alot of toughness and a in your face hard-nosed style of play, with a skill set and athletic ability that allows him to post-up very well and finish plays around the rim with alot of athleticism, strength and touch. He also has a very good midrange & in-between game ( pull-up jumpers, floaters, fadeways, stepback jumpers from around the freethrow line area when he can't get all the way to the basket) and will be big problem in the open court ( driving to the rim with strength and power, running the floor, and finishing plays with explosive dunks when he's in great shape ). Shabazz also has very good footwork and fundamentals when moving with-out the ball, when working from the tripple threat position, and when posting-up defenders. His physical play and all around post up skill set is going to get alot of shooting guards and small forwards in alot of foul trouble when he get's to the NBA
his shooting is better then i expected. Hes shooting 49% from three on the season and you truly beleive every shot is going in. Hes not the best ball handler, wont make his teamates better. But hes capable of challenging for the league scoring title in the nba and he plays both ends the court with him showing actual passion on the defensive end where he battles every play.
with not as much handles as the beard or playmaking ability...
i agree with the jr rider comparison. he has a little less muscle than jr rider had, but utilizes great scoring scills with a great powerfull slashers game
Would be to a more physical Calbert Cheaney. Some of you young guys may not remember. But they aver very similar
i was actually thinking this earlier. Of course he is a rich mans chaney, but style wise there are many similarities.
To me he is kevin martin. He can score and he is great off the ball. They both are pretty efficient. They have different bodies, so they arent exactly like each other but they are at least comparable
