The reason why I say "X factor" means one or two things. Corey Brewer will either hit his target dead on, or he will "get hit", and he'll be the target.

Corey Brewer is a 6'9'' SF/SG who suffered a torn ACL injury in only 15 games of play through the 08-09 season.

Corey Brewer was averaging a measley 6.2 PPG in his sophomore season, and 5.2 PPG in his rookie season. However, there is a huge difference in his percentages. As a rookie, Corey Brewer had 0.374 FG%, and as a sophomore, Corey Brewer had 0.411 FG%. As a rookie to a sophomore, Corey Brewer went from 0.194 3-point % to 0.417 3-point %.

Corey Brewer is not known for his offense as of yet, but it's his defensive abilitys, long arms, and hard work ethic that make Corey Brewer look like a 6'9'' young Ron Artest. He has been known to make scoring harder for guys like Kevin Durant, Brandon Roy, and Carmelo Anthony, holding them all to less than 50% shooting before he got injured.

Corey Brewer is one of the most likeable players on the roster, due to his upbeat cheer, and stupid grin that can always be seen on his face.

If Corey Brewer makes a full recovery, he can make his way up to a starting position, but most likely he'll be a key role player.

Corey Brewer could average anywhere from 6 PPG, 3 RPG, 2 APG, 1 SPG, 0.3 BPG to 12 PPG, 5 RPG, 3 APG, 2 SPG and 1 BPG. Which would make him a deadly all around player.
