Weakness Is Really an Upside Nick Collison's Selling Point

The NBA's preoccupation with draft prospects' upsides
has compelled Kansas senior forward Nick Collison to point out
his weaknesses in hopes of appearing more attractive. "The
NBA scouts have seen me for four years, and they figure they know
what I can do," says Collison, a low-post artist who could
instantly help many NBA teams. "The truth is that I have
hardly any kind of game away from the basket because I
didn't get to play out there in college. I think I have a
big upside, and it's that I can develop my perimeter game."
