Primoz Brezec is a big body. A player built to fight in the paint - strong and long.
But Primoz does not have the athletic abilities and the mind-set to be a great defensive player.
However he has great hands to score in the paint and good fundamentals.
Now, he can even fire from the three point line if he’s open.
The career of Brezec is intriguing. He was kind of a late bloomer, drafted in 2000 by the Pacers.
It wasn’t until he joined the Charlotte Bobcats in 2004 that he really got to show what he was capable of in the American league.
For two years he was the starting center for the new-born franchise and he even scored the first ever basket for the Bobcats on November 4th 2004 against the Wizards. During 2004-05, he finished fourth in the Most Improved Player ranking with impressive numbers (13 points and 7.4 rebounds).
Since he left Charlotte, he has hardly improved.
With the National Team after the retirement of Rasho Nesterovic, he is now the starting center but his best competition with Slovenia was back in 2006 at the last World Championships.
