#45 Andy Pappano

dsc_6857.jpg

Height: 5'10"
Weight: 130 lbs
Position: Guard
Hometown: Grand Island, NY
High School: St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute
Major: Business Management
NBA Player Comparison: Michael Redd

Strengths:

The team's assistant captain, Pappano is easily the star of the squad. He has an uncanny ability to knock down 3-pointers, and when he gets hot, there is no stopping him. He is the only player on the team capable of scoring 20 ppg consistently. Also, he is a good dribbler, definitely the best on the team, although he is better suited to the SG position. Fundamentally sound, he, along with Ruocco, is a good defender. And despite the fact that he is one of the shorter players, he is the best jumper on the team.

Weaknesses:

He doesn't have many weaknesses, but his frustration could be considered one. Once he gets on a cold streak, he tends to shoot mercilessly, good or bad. He sometimes has an Adam Morrison mentality - star on the offensive side, lazy defender. Also, although 5'10", he is a mere 130 pounds. If forced to handle taller players with more size inside, he will be at a disadvantage.
