Scouting Report
Assets: Truly does it all on the court: almost unstoppable one-on-one and driving to the hoop, and plays well above the rim. Incredibly explosive in the open court, with elite finishing abilities. An elite defender with great size and power. Has become more clutch over time. One of the greatest athletes to ever play the game.
Flaws: Could be a more consistent free throw shooter considering how often he gets fouled. Can add more of a mid-range game too; often either drives the lane or shoots the trey. Seen by some as a 'me-first' player (despite his great assist totals), and occasionally loses his cool when things don't go well.
Career Potential: Superstar combo forward & perennial MVP candidate.
