Prestes Paulo

Profile

Paulo has a tremendous body: with a massive wingspan with great hands. He possesses good size for a center, tall enough to make impact because of his solid weight and length. He knows how to use his strength to create space on the block; can use his wingspan to finish near the rim and his soft hands to receive the ball in every position. He loves contact, is a post guy and very intense near the basket. Understands his role on the court, excellent understanding of the game, a good passer, recognizes double team situations and has some good moves around the basket, not the most stylish moves but very effective ones. Good mobility and runs the court well for a guy his size. His offensive skills are really superior for his age. Paulo possesses great desire and is an extremely competitive guy. He plays very physical and is not afraid of anything, started to learn the game late but has shown great improvement in a short amount of time. Easy going guy off the floor and learns quickly, his great attitude makes him a great team player. Technically has some post moves, a good hook near the basket and a decent shot from the free throw line, defensively is a very solid player. Shows a real willingness to defend with contact. Paulo is a great rebounder, and is physical present inside the paint. He is a good defender and in the air is nearly undefeated. He has shown great improvement over the past few years playing in Spain, reached the top level of the Spanish league very quickly due to his hard work. He's a very solid player and one of the top rising stars in Europe .
Prestes is the newest version (taller) of the super star of the Brazilian courts of 80's and early 90's Oskar Schmidt, Prestes is amazing, he can store and rebound very easy he can pass the ball and dribble very well for his size. He proved all that as in the last World championship he was the top scorer and the top rebounder of the tournament.
