Big East Rookie of the
Year (05), All Big East Rookie team (05)
Can do it all at
both ends of the floor but frustratingly doesn’t always. Great size and
skills tailor made for the NBA.
Good high arcing jump shot allows him to get it off over defenders. Has
shooting range well back behind the 3 arc. Great athlete can take the
ball to the rack with authority. Also uses his size, speed and
athleticism to steal a lot of balls and swat a lot of shots. Will be
able to use his size and high released jumper to score easily over NBA
Inconsistent. Will follow up a 20+ point game with a single digit
effort. Lack of aggression/competitiveness. Disappears during games
(sometimes for a whole game) and defers to his teammates. Has shot the
ball very poorly this season, especially behind the 3-line.
Projected 2006 Draft Range: Top 3 pick.
While Gay will most definitely be a very high draft pick, he
is far from a polished product. He is familiar to Marvin Williams’
situation last year (a more talented version of Williams) – a player
being drafted high due to their “upside”. Still, he has all the tools
to be a big time pro.
