NBA Comparison: Stanley Roberts

Strengths: A physically imposing low post player … Has continued to work on his body, losing a lot of weight and improving his conditioning ... Very efficient scorer ... He has a very strong and wide frame and he is able to create room and muscle his way around the hoop … Operating on the low block he is able to establish terrific position and is also very capable of making tough catches in traffic ... He uses his strength to force his way to the hoop, overpowering defenders for easy finishes inside ... Has a nice mini hook going to his left shoulder ... A good athlete for his size, he has the explosiveness to catch and finish strong at the rim ... Extremely effective rebounder on the offensive end, he clears space and attacks the glass ... Shows good timing and is able to block a lot of shots in the paint ...

Weaknesses:
Has no ability to step out and shoot jumpers or put it on the floor, which limits him strictly to the center position and at 6'10 he is a bit undersized ... Even with his improved physique, his motor is still very much a question mark ... He has problems staying in the game for long stretches ... Extremely foul prone, he is fairly undisciplined and doesn't move his feet ... Does not operate well with or finish to his left hand ... Extremely poor foul shooter ...

Borko Popic 6/22/10

Strengths:
Mammoth of a man who has made enormous strides developing his game. Has dropped over 70 pounds since arriving on the UT campus, from 366 to the 290 range -- showing his work ethic and desire to make use of his frame ... Attended the Pete Newell Big Man Camp in the summer of 2008 ... His quickness, agility and feel for the game continue to improve year in and year out ... Has enormous hands. and very soft hands for a man his size ... Has shown a deft touch around the rim (career 59% from the field) and at the free throw line (73% as junior) ... Has good release and follow through on FT stroke ... Uses his large frame to seal off opponents in the paint with relative ease ... Finishes strong at the hoop ... Was extremely passive and unsure of himself early on his college career, but has developed a mean-streak to his game ... Takes advantage of his size and punishes smaller opponents ... Has improved his quickness off the floor, averaging nearly three offensive boards per game as a Jr ... His pet move is a drop step into the lane with a short baby hook ... Extremely bright kid, was Academic All-Big 12 as a sophomore.

Weaknesses:
Stamina is a major concern. Still only seeing 15 minutes of playing time per contest ... Despite loss of weight, movement up and down the court is still an issue and can be painful at times ... He will always be a 'lumberer' ... Foul trouble usually emerges as a result of fatigue ... He averages a foul every 5 minutes on the court ... He has made massive improvements in lateral quickness and agility, but these will always be flaws ... Has a tendency to push off on the offensive and defensive glass, committing unnecessary fouls. Always enjoys a major size advantage against big 12 competition. He will not enjoy this same distinct advantage against opposing Center's in the NBA ... Still brings the ball down too low in the paint, leveling the playing field against smaller foes allowing them to slap it away ... Has not shown any semblance of a face up game or midrange jumper. Needs to continue to develop in these areas, as well as continued improvement in his post game, physical strength and stamina ...
