@Peezus Most of his score at will points come off a fast break against 6'3 or smaller guards. If you really think Ben Simmons is going to be scoring 20ppg like LeBron James, your crazy. I love the way he plays, sits by the free throw making plays for others. His defense is incredible. And his rebounding skills is great. But what I'm saying is if he can't knock down shots in the NBA, he will not be a franchise player.
Effective in pick-and-roll/pick-and-pop situations
Taking defenders off the bounce
Needs to become more efficient as a back-to-the-basket scorer
Free throw shooting
Creating his own shot
Comfort level handling ball on perimeter when not immediately shooting the ball
Summary: Markieff Morris has always been a physical presence inside, but his developing perimeter jump shot has really helped his stock this season. His natural fit is at power forward but he could also play the center position at the next level if needed. He is in the 2011 NBA Draft for good and should be taken in the middle of the first round.
Player Comparison: Antonio McDyess. Think McDyess post-injury; an effective big man who can knock down jump shots but also be a factor inside with his physicality. Morris will fit a similar role as he will never be a star in the league but should become a steady contributor due to his size and skill level.
