Very charismatic personality, similar (surfer) attitude to Brazilian tennis star Gustavo Kuerten, very laid back, but not to the point where he isn't motivated. Has the versatility to play the small forward position at 6-10.

    Default The New Marcus Camby

    at the 2004 draft
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    NBA Comparison: Marcus Camby

    Strengths: An unbelievable athlete who can jump out of the gym with the best of them. A highlight real waiting to happen. His incredibly long arms and intensity make him a ferocious offensive and defensive rebounder. Gets off the floor almost instantaneously. Possesses a nice turnaround jumper and decent ball handling skills for a player his size. Has the potential and desire to not only become an offensive force, but a shut down defender as well. A very exciting player to watch with huge potential.

    Weaknesses: Everything he does is based on his superior athletic ability. Despite his ball handling skills, Hakim is still very raw. His points usually come from fastbreaks, tip-ins, and putbacks. He tries to dunk everything on the offensive end and block everything on the defensive side. Perimeter game is suspect, despite good form on his outside shot. MUST put on muscle if he has any plans of ever playing pro ball, he is very thin and is easily out-muscled. Free throw shooting and interior defense are also concerns.

    Notes: Hakim has the potential to become a very good player, but must learn to rely on more than his other worldly athletic ability. If he learns to collect himself and show some patience, his offense will improve dramatically. It seems as though Coach Boeheim is going to use Hakim on the interior in his early years at SU and then slowly bring him out to the perimeter as his shot and ball handling mature....Nicknamed "Skinny" by his friends due to his extremely slender frame. Upside is definitely there.

    first guy for workouts, slavo
    The Knicks are intrigued by the 7-foot-6 Yugoslavian Slavko Vranes and asked to watch him work out at John Jay College on Monday.

    Vranes, part of the Marc Cornstein European stable, is staying in New York through the draft. The 20-year-old played limitedly for his Yugoslavian team, so he's likely to be a late first-round or second-round pick.

    Kaman looks like a product of the system at Central Michigan. The only thing impressive about him is his size. I think he's about reached the peak of his potential and I don't believe he'll have a long career in the NBA. Size != quality size.

    Pavel will probably be out of reach now that his latest workout has caused his stock to skyrocket. He will be picked no lower than sixth.
