Lawson is a 4/3 forward. He plays really hard, sometimes to his own detriment. At one point today versus the NY Lightning he put his down & literally drove into 3 defenders. His jumper is concerning. His feet are positioned very close to one another and there is a lot of left hand in essay on my role model albert einstein his release. He likens to Danjel Purifoy (AL-15), but he has more skill than him.

Agree with Jon’s camp eval 100 percent. Lawson’s length and game diversity makes him an intriguing prospect at the next level. Lawson didn’t show a consistent jumper here but has the physical upside to be productive at the next level.

Lawson showed to be a 3/4 tweener forward. He exceled at attacking the rim off of the dribble. He even finished strongly while positioned in the short corner and finished a tough 3pt play vs. Noah essay helpers Dickerson (GA-15). He did not show a 3pt jumper. He is a competent ball handler, but lacks the wiggle to create his own shot in the mid-range.
