Strengths: Excellent first step owns a variety of penetration moves like stutter steps,
crossovers, and change of directions moves to get in the lane ... Loves to
create offense for himself especially when playing in one-on-one situations ...
Has become a much more consistent 3-point shooter from the outside ...
Defensively he has quick hands and plays the passing lanes well for easy picks
.... For his age he owns pretty good shot selection something that will be very
valuable at the next level ... Can play a small amount of time at the point
guard position ... Smooth creates well in traffic and can finish with some flair
like floaters and reverses ... Average rebounder for his size although his
numbers aren't great but remember he played with Michael Wright and Loren Woods
so not that many rebounds went astray... Above average shooter off the dribble
can shake and shoot with the best of them. ...
Weakness: Has troubles defensively defending taller players this will cause him to be a
liability on defense... Tweener doesn't have the play making ability to play
point guard and doesn't have the height (6-3) to play shooting guard ...
Turnovers are a problem for Arenas often because he tries to do too much with
ball ... Has a tendency to shoot erratic from the 3-point line although this has
more to do with his mechanics so he can correct this... Must continue to enhance
his mid-range as it goes through periods of inconsistency although this happened
less this year ... Should work on improving his ball handling while it was good
in college for a shooting guard the point guard postion might be what he plays
full time in the NBA ....
