Pad level is a big concern. When coming out of his stance, Lee has a habit of standing too upright. In these instances, he gives up leverage and is susceptible to getting pushed backwards. Lee also has the tendency to fall off blocks, which is linked to his pad level issues and minimal use of his feet.

As an athlete, Lee is somewhat limited and is not overly explosive, despite being reasonably mobile. On counters, Lee struggles locating and sealing defenders; for this reason, he is better suited for inside zone runs. Though Lee plays center, his skillset may be more effective as a guard.
