Joakim Kjellbom is very mobile for being 2.13m and relies more on finesse and court awareness rather than brute force to score points and block shots. Kjellbom has won the Swedish championship playing for Norrköping and the Georgian championship with Armia. He has played very well in the EuroChallenge and has shown that he can get things done on the international stage. Being one of few Swedish players with serious size and experience, Joakim will have to provide solid inside defence and rebounding for his team. He has developed a nice shooting touch from outside and should be able to provide spacing if teams try to pack the paint against Sweden.
