 @Jax Raging Bile Duct I think he'll have to work to improve his handle to be a three. He's more of a straight 4 but with a very solid jump shot/midrange game and very good post moves.

 

Nicholson isn't as good as ZBo in the post up game but he's still very good. He's also a better face up player.

 

Athletically he's far better than ZBo. He's very quick, one of quickest  leapers in this years draft and very athletic.

 

yeah he's not much like Zbo. The only reason they are similar is they both have very solid polished post moves and great mid range games. Also Nicholson, like ZBo, is very offensive minded and his biggest issues will probably be on D.

 

The one thing I'm having a hard time doing is projecting Nicholson. One one hand he seems very polished as you don't see Pf coming out of college with his assortment of moves but he didn't play at a big time program so he still probably has plenty of room to grow.

Nicholson was an absolute force for his last 3 years at Bonas. he's not like ZBo because he's a stellar athlete but he's also extremely skilled. he's got an extremely feathery jumper with range out to 22 feet. An assortment of back to the basket and face up moves.

 

If he played at a high major instead of a mid major he'd probably be a top 15 pick. His struggles are more on the defensive end. Where he gets up very quickly for rebounds and blocks but doesn't have the bulk to always block out bigger players. He also doesn't pass well out of double teams.

 

Either way he's a very skilled guy who can play both the 3 and 4 and he has very good athletic ability as well.
