NBA Comparison: Antonio McDyess

James Burbridge - 7/16/2007

Strengths: A skilled power forward with a tremendous package of size and athleticism Measures in at 69 230 lbs with bigtime hops and lateral quickness Possesses a good handle for a player his size as well as a mid-range shot Led the Jayhawks in blocked shots as a freshman with 56, displaying his quick, explosive vertical leap Had a big game against Florida early in the season with 19 points and 9 rebounds, showing that he can compete with NBA caliber big men and step up when it counts Finished the year averaging 9.8 ppg, good for fourth on a talented Kansas team Runs the floor very well for his size, very fluid Solid post moves for a player his age, and showing good development in his post game His shooting touch id good and his range seems to be improving

Weaknesses: Foul prone, amassing 133 fouls over the course of the season, first on the team by a wide margin. Must learn to stay on his feet more often rather than trying to block everything in sight As good as his shot looks, his free throw shooting must improve as he shot 65% for the season Needs to improve his ball handling as he likes to face the basket from midrange but struggles to get to the rim due to unpolished ball skills Has a great frame, but needs to put more weight on to contend with NBA big men. Probably about 15 pounds away from having an NBA ready body. Needs to increase his shooting range

Outlook: Reports out of the U19 Team USA practices claimed that Arthur was the best player on the team before suffering a stress fracture in his left leg. The injury should be completely healed before practices begin so the injury doesnt appear to be one that should haunt him the rest of his career With the departure of Julian Wright to the NBA, Arthur will be asked to step right in and be a bigger contributor to a team that has its eyes on a national championship. With the return of Brandon Rush for his junior year the focus of the offense wont rest squarely on Arthurs shoulder, but make no mistake about it, the Jayhawks will need a big year from Arthur if they expect to be a true contender
