Default Corey Brewer and Chris Richard playerfiles/info, Strengthes/Weaknesses


NBA Postion:Small Forward
College Team:Florida
Hometown:Portland, TN
High School:Portland

"The premiere perimeter defender in college, capable of being a lock down defender on the next level … Physically he has everything you need to stand out defensively: long arms, footwork, quickness, anticipation, long arms and height plus a willingness to exert as much effort on defense as on offense … Tough minded player with a strong work ethic … Not a bad passer for his size who unselfishly looks for open teammates … Decent rebounder who uses his leaping ability and long arms to make an impact on the glass … When driving to the basket, he converts difficult baskets due to his body control and leaping ability … Is a solid three point shooter when his feet are set … Excellent finisher in transition where his athleticism allows him to finish with ease … Approaches the game with a blue collar attitude and does all the dirty work with a smile on his face … Shows above average post up skills for a SF … When everything is clicking, he can put up points in a hurry … Moves well without the ball and has become efficient running off of screens ..."

Weakness: "Offensively he still doesn’t seem to have a great grasp of the game … Not really able to score at will, or create offense for himself or others the way you would expect someone with his physical abilities … Ball handling must continue to improve as he’s clearly not comfortable with the ball in his hands … From a fundamental standpoint he doesn’t do a good job of keeping his dribble low and away from his defender … Right now his body should be a priority for him to work on … Currently he lacks upper body strength and needs to bulk up on his slight 185 pound frame … Offensively Brewer does a lot of things well but nothing spectacular. While he has range, he lacks consistency … Has slashing ability but too often settles for shooting the jumper … Is prone to making mental mistakes in games during critical moments …"

Strengths: "Bullish strength ... Loves to defend in the post, and seems very comfortable banging down low with anyone ... Seems to enjoy doing the dirty work ... Strength allows him to box out well and push people around in the paint ... Surprisingly good free throw shooter for someone of his skill set ... Doesn't try to force his offense, lets the offense come to him ... Great field goal percentage throughout collegiate career ... Good at setting picks ... Hustles hard ... Practicing every day against Al Horford and Joakim Noah has definitely helped him learn to defend more athletic big men..."

Weaknesses: "May struggle to keep up with the speed of the NBA game ... Doesn't have great hands, and muffs some passes ... Lacks stand out athleticism which limits his potential ... Also struggles to block shots and cannot out leap most opponents for high rebounds ... Is only 6-8 and doesn't have great length ... Has never held a starting role for a prolonged period of time ... Not a real offensive minded player ... Has a tendency to get into foul trouble, even in limited time ..."
