Clemente is about as quick as guards can get, even with the ball, and demonstrates that in the open court. But when it's not flying down the court in transition, Clemente has problems. He's not a particularly good outside shooter, yet he has rash shot selection and lets his average jumpers fly anyway. He doesn't turn the ball over much as a lead guard, yet he also doesn't create opportunities for team mates outside of the basics. For all his speed, he's small and slender, unable to finish around the basket or to change anyone's direction of travel on defense. It's all floaters, one man transition opportunities, electric speed with or without the ball, the occasional hot shooting night, and plenty of yelling, enthusiasm and unrelenting confidence. A great combination for a college point guard, but not NBA material.

Also on the Guaynabo roster is Luis Colon, an offensively terrible but hard working big man who started for Kansas State all this season. Colon is a marginal talent, as reflected by his numbers, but it's cool for the Puerto Rican native to be playing in his home nation's premier league. Colon's Kansas State team mate Denis Clemente was the first overall pick in the 2010 BSN Home Players draft, but, because he has NBA draft aspirations, he did not play in the 2010 BSN season.
