Scouting Report: Leandro Barbosa

Last season, Leandro Barbosa made a big leap from a young player with potential to nearly an all-star. This season, the Phoenix Suns hope that he will continue his development and become an all-star. With the expectation that the Suns will get limited support from their bench, Barbosa's contributions will become even more valuable this season.

Player Name: Leandro Barbosa
Current Team: Phoenix Suns
Ideal Position: SG
Drafted: 28
Height/Weight: 6'3"/188
Birthdate: 11/28/82
Hometown: Sao Paulo, Brazil
High School: -
College: -
Agent: Merle Scott (BDA)

Contract:
2003-04 $674,400
2004-05 $870,000
2005-06 $930,000
2006-07 $1,679,733
2007-08 $5,600,000
2008-09 $6,100,000
2009-10 $6,600,000
2010-11 $7,100,000
2011-12 $7,600,000 (Player Option)

Notes:
Speaks Portuguese and English; Fifth Brazilian in the NBA; During the 2003 draft, his rights were traded by San Antonio to Phoenix for a 2005 conditional first round pick.

Strengths:
Plays like he's been shot out of a cannon; Only needs the slightest brush-screen to gain a quarter-step advantage that he can easily transform into a layup; Three-point shooting off the catch; At his best when he brings the ball up the left side of the court and then blazes to the hoop for a layup; Anticipation for steals; Excels offensively when being defended by big point guards; Energy; 6'10" wingspan; Excels when coming off a screen.

Weaknesses:
Only gets to the hoop when he starts from a dead-stop with the ball in his hands; Can only be completely contained by his own out-of-control drives and passes; Gambles for steals too frequently; Left-handed layup; Has an unusual delivery on his shot, in which he holds his arms well in front of his body and releases from a low point; Limited mid-range game; Rarely shoots off the dribble or with a man in his face; On-ball defense; Help defense; Strength; Fares much better when defending point guards than shooting guards.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
