Summary

Matt Nicholson is a big that has extremely long arms which allows him to be a good shot blocker. He challenges everything which can get him into foul trouble at times. His ability to block shots does hinder one of his weaknesses, which is the inability to defend in the low post against quicker, stronger and more athletic bigs. Nicholson has to become better with his defensive awareness as opponents often slip behind him. On offense, Matt can finish around the rim due to his footwork, length, and size which frees him up from defenders.
