NBA Comparison: N/A

Joshua Motenko - 8/11/2007

Strengths: Balbay is a lefty scoring point guard with and excellent first step. He has the type of quickness, reflexes, and change of direction ability that let him get wherever he wants to on the floor. Hes a very craft dribbler who knows how to set up his defender to get him off balance, but he plays under control. Balbay also has very nice leaping ability that helps him finish at the basket, and he uses it to help out on the glass C out-jumping other players for rebounds. He uses his speed to get into the passing lanes at opportune times on defense. His game is very street oriented, and reminds a little bit of Tony Parkers style of play and skill set.

Weaknesses: His size is very small for the NBA. Hes got the athleticism to make up for it, but his body would take a real beating with bigger athletes. Hes got good confidence on his shooting ability, but his consistency could improve. He isnt really a leader on the court, but is often the most talented. If hes not making the play, hes usually not involved in it, as he sometimes takes plays off. The biggest question mark with Balbay is his ability to be a point guard who initiates team basketball. He seems to be a player who tries to achieve a lot on the court without always putting primary importance on winning. If he can control his ego, hes close to being a first round talent.
