NBA Comparison: Mario Bennett

Strengths: Smooth forward with potential ... Great athlete with excellent run/jump ability ... Big frame that should continue to fill out quite nicely ... Strong finisher in the paint, due to length and body-control ... Aggressive rebounder who attacks the glass on both ends of the floor ... 7'1" wingspan and solid anticipation make him a threat as a shot-blocker ... Impressive outside shooting ability... High release point and developing range ... Outstanding skill-level all around ... Understands how to play in the post... Makes quick, confident and decisive moves with the ball around the basket ... Whether he's near the rim or on the perimeter, he finds ways to create space for himself ... Comfortable ball-handler, showing the ability to take a defensive rebound coast-to-coast by himself ... Runs the floor well with or without the ball... Good at drawing contact and getting to the free-throw line ... Wide shoulders help him set good screens … Clutch shooter that is not afraid to make big plays for his team... Unselfish, willing to make the extras pass ... Hard worker with great character ...

Weaknesses: At 6'8 1/2" he only has average size for his natural position at power forward, but does have the potential/skills to transition to the perimeter if he chooses ... Needs polishing and seasoning in developing his already promising ball-handling and passing skills if he wants to be a full-time wing player... Right now he relies on his outstanding natural instincts in the post, but should work on developing a few go-to moves...

Notes: Was Co-MVP of both the McDonald's All-American game and the Jordan Brand Classic... Uncle Bob McAdoo is a former NBA MVP, who won two championships and averaged 22.1 points and 9.4 rebounds a game over a 14 year career ... Measured 6'9 (in shoes) 226 lbs, with a 7'1 wingspan at the 2011 Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy.
