Canada Myck Kabongo

NBA Position: Point Guard
Class: HS Senior
Ht: 6-2
Wt: 160
Hometown: Ontario, Toronto, Canada


Strengths:
Kabongo is arguably the best pure point guard in the 2011 class. He is an intelligent player with great leadership skills and a coach's feel for running a team. He has great pace to his game and rarely puts himself in position to force a bad play. His elite level athleticism and quickness combined with high percentage decision making are what sets him apart from his peers. He is a consistent 3-point shooter that forces defenders to play close giving him the advantage to penetrate into the paint. Defensively, he is equally as dominant. He understands angles and is relentless pressuring the ball. Great first step to gain an advantage on his defender. He is also a great drive, draw and kick passer when he attacks the lane at high speeds.

Weaknesses:
Kabongo is one of those players that always seem to play to his strengths and stay away from his weaknesses. Weaknesses he has had in the past (e.g. consistent perimeter shooting, driving left), he has worked on and turned them into strengths; we have watched him play error free (no turnovers) many times and love his competiveness. One area that we have noticed that he will need to continue to improve upon for the collegiate level and beyond is handling double teams when teams try to get the ball out of his hands. He recognizes them quick enough, but needs to work on either splitting or escaping them when he still has his dribble. Also, he can over-penetrate at times which leads to a turnover.

Bottom Line:
Point guards play the most important position on the floor and are ultimately judged by winning. The Canadian import is a coach's dream that excels at all the key skills that make up an outstanding floor leader.

this kid is in next years draft. Just good to see some really good Canadian prospects.

It's not girly at all, drafting him just based on the marketing value his name could bring was my first thought.

Kabongo makes me think it's worth tanking twice.
