Skill-wise, Milicic may be the best player in the draft. He is not the athlete James and Anthony are, but he is a good shooter whose game is more suited to the NBA than
to the European leagues. He would be deadly in the NBA pick-and-rolls, and he is athletic enough to create off of isolations, which are not common in European basketball.
He aslo can run the floor and finish fast breaks.
Milicic has the inclination to play tough interior defense, but he does not yet have the body. He can be pushed off the block, though he often
recovers to get a hand on shots. He has to work on
some fundamentals, too, like holding the ball high after
rebounds to keep from being stripped by strong
players. He'll need work, but the finished product
could be every bit as good as James, only in a 7-foot frame
