Scouting Report
Assets: One of the most explosive athletes in NBA history. Plays at a very high speed, constantly pushing the ball and pressuring the defense. Can blow past defenders with ease and finish over 7-footers regularly. Dominates the whole game: piles up steals, scores from all over the court, dishes out copious assists, and rebounds like a forward.
Flaws: Very turnover-prone (in part because he handles the ball so much and plays at such a high speed). While a fearless 3-point shooter, he's not very accurate from behind the arc. Lacks ideal durability for a superstar.
Career Potential: Explosive do-it-all superstar point guard, & perennial MVP candidate.
