NBA Comparison: Matt Bullard

Aran Smith - 3/25/2006

Strengths: One of the purest shooters around ... Effortless release on his shot ... Has a lifetime free throw and 3 point shooting percentage higher than JJ Redick ... His range extends easily out to NBA 3 ... A player that cannot be left open ... Only missed 18 free throws over his entire college career ... Could fit a role as a specialty shooter on the next level ... Very crafty player ... Competitive, good decision maker ... Has good size and length which helps him to get shots off ... Gets the most of his abilities ... Steps up in big games, put up 41 points leading Marquette to a win over UConn in his senior year ... Showed steady improvement each year, and stepped up as the team's leader as a senior taking Marquette into the NCAA tournament ... Passing skills and vision are decent ... His body strength has shown steady improvement ... With added strength he has become a better rebounder ...

Weaknesses: His game is fairly one dimensional as a spot up shooter ... Over 2/3 of his FG attempts are from 3 ... Athleticism is well below average, his speed and agility is poor ... Doesn't get much lift, rarely dunks the ball ... His foot speed limits his overall effectiveness ... Not a highly aggressive player, some of that has to do with his lack of body strength ... Shies away from contact ... Has no real back to the basket game ... A defensive liability. Lacks the foot speed to defend small forwards and the strength to defend power forwards ... Doesn't have the speed or ball handling to create shots for himself ... He can struggle to get looks if an athletic player is defending him ...
