Off Season Player Improvements
After watching the rockets this season, what do you guys think each individual player should mainly work on? Interested to see what your opinions are...
Brooks - man to man defense. he is already a sharpshooter and quick when he attacks the basket. his mid range game will continue to develop along with the rest of his offense. I think he will also mature into a better distributor and floor general. BUT i really believe he needs to work on his defense, it seems like opposing point guard take advantage of him on defense.
Kevin Martin - HEALTH. he is already a sharpshooter from deep, solid mid range game, and quick when he attacks the basket, he has been a 90% FT in houston. decent court vision. i think he needs to be a better man to man defender BUT the number thing for Kmart is to stay healthy next season.
Ariza - Shooting. This season he is shooting around 37% from the field and about 31% from deep. This is partly due to too much freedom on offense. but that does not mean he shouldn't work on it. He is shooting i think 65% from the FT line. That shot needs alot of repetition. Next season Id like to see more drives, less contested shots, and possibly more rebounding?
Scola - not sure exactly. he is a solid defender and a hustler. he is our best rebounder this season. he has solid post moves and he has a solid mid range jumper. If anything he could continue working on finishing with his left hand.
Yao - Health!
Lowry - shooting. he is one of the best back up point guards in the game. he is relentless when he drives to the basket. he is a solid free throw shooter, he changes the pace of the game and he has good court vision. But an improved 3 point range will really help his game.
Budinger - continue to improve. he is already a solid shooter mid range and from deep. he can drive to the basket. he is athletic as hell. he just needs to continue to improve his overall game.
Jordan Hill - hes a quick jumper which means he will get rebounds. he can put the ball through the hoop from hustle and he has a nice mid range jumper. I guess just continue to work on post moves and his overall game.
Jermaine Taylor - continue improvement. he works on defense, he has a pretty good jumper. he just needs to continue improving his overall game and gain some experience. he could be a really good player.
David Anderson - defense and rebounding. not sure what his role is going to be next season but definitely his defense and his rebounding. that will determine his playing time next season.
