Scouting Report on Ralph Sampson IIIby Jerry Meyer - 08/15/2007
A poised and skilled player with the basketball in his hands, Sampson has a soft shooting touch out to 17-feet. He can get in trouble at times putting the ball on the floor in traffic, but Sampson generally makes the right decision with the basketball. Not overly athletic, Sampson is, however, a smart defensive player, who uses positioning and fundamentals to succeed.
