Default Can Yall Critique My lil cousin basketball skills ?

Basketball fans have an eye for basketball ability. I want my cousin to see what the ISH family has to say about his hoop game. Both his strengths and weaknesses ...so he will know what to work on this summer

17 years old
6'1 guard
27 ppg average


He has a great work ethic . Reminds me so much of myself when i was a youngin

Decent passing and decent enough handles for his level. Shooting form doesn't look too efficient. Nice athleticism.

All in all average decently talented but not good enough for a higher level basketball player.

He isn't bad by any mean. Just not sure he can make it big. No wow factor about his play.

Why is he shooting from so far behind the line?

His jump shot looks like it will get easily swatted vs decent college level competition, not to mention NBA, he'd get shit stuffed in his face all day.

Do your cuz a favor and buy him the JJ Reddick shooting method DVD and help him work on overhauling that shot!

Most of the kids he's playing with look like 13 year olds

Anyone will look good when you're physically superior and have more experience due to age

He plays in a small league. This summer he will be playing against stiffer competition during AAU showcases etc.

half the kids I see nowadays can shoot far out. Its that Stephen Curry Effect
When I was growing up all we cared about were Crossover and AND1 Moves. Allen Iverson ruined a generation of players.

How would you suggest he increase his wow factor?


Me personally I think he needs to add more to his game.
Increase his handles
Improve his shooting mechanics
more off-the ball game like coming off screens.

He doesn't look very dominant vs those guys.

Just an example, Jordan Farmar looked dominant when he used to play for Taft and he was going up against tougher competition than your cuz game in game out.

Your cuz looks pretty good but not near dominant, like Jordan Farmar and other top recruits look like playing in highschool.

Maybe that's unfair because Farmar was a high school All American, but your cousin does not stand out compared to other high school ballers I've seen. Rose and Farmar and other top highschool PG prospects used to just murderously dunk on 6'8+ dudes at high school level and blow by people with pure athleticism, not even having to cross them up or anything.

Nothing about your cousin's game right now makes me think "wow, this guy is going to the next level."

He is not blowing by people with insane quickness, he isn't destroying kids off the dribble, his shot has poor mechanics, and he does not have amazing power or hops for a guy his size.

What would you say his strengths are?

I agree he has to add more to his game for excitement factor...especially as a prospect where talent evaluators will be looking at his game. However if you watch Harden 50 point game . You will noticed the extreme similarities

I told him to model his game off James Hardin and Moreyball philosophy

layups , free throws , 3 pointers . Its extremely affect and at times almost unstoppable when you have someone who is good enough to get into the paint whenever , can knock down 80% free throws , shoot the 3 point ball however.


I'd love to see him though add a little more JJ Reddick/Kyle Korver stuff like coming offf screens.

Don't turn him in to a harden! That guy is a flopper and a joke! He should model his game of Ray Allen and Curry!
