Scouting
  • Christmas is one of the older players in the draft at 23, and that will slightly limit his upside after breaking out during his senior season. Having said that, there are some reasons for excitement. At nearly 6-10 with a 7-5-plus wingspan, Christmas measured big enough to play center in the NBA. The question will be whether or not a team believes that he's good enough to make an impact in the NBA now.
  • Christmas is a terrific rebounder and has good touch around the rim. He's also pretty good at defending near the basket, affecting shots with ease due to his long wingspan and size.
  • Christmas is a pretty awful passer, and can often be a bit selfish if he gets the ball with even the slightest chance of scoring. Defensively, he hasn't had to defend on the perimeter often due to his role in Syracuse's zone. He doesn't have much shooting range. Limited upside due to age.
