John Collins

  • Nice coordinated athlete
  • Great hands to catch the ball in traffic off the rim or a pass
  • Extremely good rebounder
  • Good shot blocker
  • He does a nice job banging defensively inside
  • Very good mid-range shooter
  • He plays within himself taking good shots which makes him efficient
  • He is willing to take a hit going to the basket
  • Improved from the line as a sophomore

  • Weaknesses
  • Not a very good defender away from the basket
  • His range is limited to about 15 feet right now
  • He will commit some silly fouls
  • He won't make the extra pass often.

  • Bottom Line
  • I love his potential. He is an efficient scorer and post presence. He isn't the explosive athlete that Blake Griffin is but I see him being a productive player like Griffin.
