His ball handling skills are a mess. I don't think he can create nearly enough seperation for himself to use what is a streaky jumper.

Forgot to add his ball handling. Like Ford or whoever wrote this article said, Phoenix would be a great fit for him. A system where you don't have to create for yourself too much. He bounces the ball way too high.

I won't go back on saying that I might think higher of him after the Orlando camp, but right now he's still closer to the end of the lottery than at 4 like was suggested.

I agree, bench press is the most useless evaluation of a player. Lower and mid body strength is a lot more important.


Look at a guy like aldridge, he could only do 8 reps of the bar, you gonna take Shelden Williams over him who could do 25. Guy like Craig Smith couldn't do 1.

I would imagine if Noah shows any low post scoring ability you can run plays for him. If he has any consistency there he will get doubled and he can pass to the open shooter/player... Pick and Rolls may be good if he is the cutter to the basket but if a team runs double screens he can be affective from apparantley 15 ft and in which I never thought he could do at all...
He can be a good West Coast player with up tempo smaller lineups... Out East he can be that post player...
