Scouting Report
Assets: One of the greatest pure scorers in NBA history. Brought the rare focus to consistently convert, with picture-perfect form on his jumper. Immensely competitive, and was capable of beating anyone one-on-one and carrying his team offensively. A premier athlete who was overlooked as an elite defender and an excellent passer & rebounder.
Flaws: Early in his career his ego created problems with teammates and coaches, and he additionally had off-court trouble. Sometimes tried to take too much scoring responsibility when he could have been more of a distributor. Turnovers were always an issue, as was streakiness from the 3-point arc.
Career Potential: All-time great at shooting guard.
