NBA Comparison: PJ Brown

Matthew Maurer - 12/2/2006

Strengths: Few players his size run the court as well as he does Because of this he regularly beats opposing forwards down the court for quick scores Possesses refined post footwork Combine that with Splitters body control and you have someone who has no trouble getting his shot off in the post An above average rebounder Uses his quickness to obtain most rebounds in and out of his position Double teams rarely effect him due to his above average court vision Excels in the high post as he can use his quick first step to drive past most defenders Possess a very good basketball IQ, understands the game His superb mobility enables him to run the fast break with no problems and finish Moves well without the ball and will work to get open Defensively he is blessed with above average lateral movement and long arms Possesses excellent hands that are both quick and soft which helps him on both sides of the ball Shows soft touch around the basket where he can make a good amount of shots via drop-ins, hooks, or put backs

Weaknesses: Not a prolific offensive player Despite his height and quickness, Splitter is not much of a shot blocker Tends to get frustrated when played physically in the low post This has led some to question his mental toughness Throughout his career he has had health trouble so theres the concern that he could be an injury prone player in the NBAs 82 game schedule Must improve on his upper body strength. How big he can actually get is questionable This impacts him offensively when he fails to finish after contact occurs Despite being one of the most talented players on the court, he tends to defer to teammates and lacks aggressiveness Surprisingly he shows mediocre consistency shooting from mid-range Not a great free throw shooter Still prone to fundamental lapses as he doesnt always secure rebounds which enable easy steals for opposing teams Tends to get out-muscled for rebounding position by stronger opposing forwards

Vinicius Fontana - 1/1/2005

Strengths: Athletic forward with good size. Runs the floor well, good agility ... Plays hard with toughness around the basket ... Has nice moves around the basket where he usually finishes with power plays. He has excellent mobility and great foot work for a player his size. He has a lot of international experience playing for a top European team (Tau Ceramica) ...

Weaknesses: Lacks a great offensive game, not much of a shooter and lacks range ... His body still very weak to play the PF position. He has problems defending stronger guys and playing post up on offense, has to improve his timing on rebounds and his patience on defense. His defense can improve a lot playing in Europe and his body will certainly develop.

Notes: Made the Brazilian National team as a 17 years old and competed in the 2002 World Championships in Indianapolis. Very athletic player. Prefers to play on the outside. Shies away from contact. A bigtime scorer. Somewhat similar to Kirilenko with his rangy frame. Has a ways to go skill-wise.
