Cohen's Analysis: It’s been a bit of roller coaster rookie season for Andrew Nicholson. There was a stretch, though, particularly before the Magic added Tobias Harris, in which Drew was briskly making immense improvements.

Nicholson has one of the smoothest, most refined offensive games for a young power forward. His footwork is extraordinary, he can score with either hand and his 15-to-18 foot jump shot is almost automatic.

But similar to the problems Nikola Vucevic has had this season, Nicholson struggles guarding the stronger and more experienced big men around the league. He will live in the weight room this summer. If he does transform his body and becomes capable of defending guys like David West, Kevin Garnett, Chris Bosh and some of the other elite fours, Nicholson has a chance to become an All-Star caliber power forward.
