When a player coming into the NBA is evaluated, scouts don't test the athlete's ability to hit a shot with time winding down and a defender in his face.

Vertical jump, upper body strength, speed and reach are some of the most common things measured by NBA scouts, trying to discover the raw abilities of a player. However, each scout watches tons of games, and even more game film.

The way a player reacts to pressure situations can depend on his personality type. A great scorer in the first three quarters might not be the go-to guy in the final stanza.
