high school[edit]

I went to high school at Friends' Central School with Hakim, but despite that I don't remember anything about his high school basketball career. Possibly someone who knows more can add something. Izzycat 22:29, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Player File[edit]

Warrick is an incredible athlete with a 38-inch vertical and a 7-foot-2 wingspan. The combination of the two make Warrick an above-average rebounder as well as a prolific dunker. Warrick also has excellent footwork featuring a devastating drop-step, as well as an array of spin moves in the low post. In the past few seasons, Warrick has worked to improve his mid-range jumper, which is reliable out to about the 15-foot range. He also possesses a turnaround shot that, given his leaping ability and wingspan, is very difficult to block.[1]

However, Warrick is also a tweener because he is not strong enough to guard the bigger power forwards in the NBA, and does not possess the ballhandling skills of a small forward. This of course works both ways. Another weakness of Warrick's is his long-range jumper. Despite good form, Warrick cannot shoot consistently from 20 feet from the basket. And, although Warrick showed improvement last season, for the majority of his career, Warrick has been a suspect free-throw shooter.[2]

I removed the above text from the article because it might be useful after getting NPOV'd. —LOL T/C 17:47, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
