Scouting Report
Assets: One of the NBA's all-time great scorers. Has a true knack for finding his shot and beating his defender one-on-one. Employs great instincts and angles to get his jumper off, with a quick, nice release. Has the size of a power forward and the skills of a guard; rebounds well and is a solid passer. Clutch and take-charge.
Flaws: Takes a huge volume of shots but rarely posts a top-tier field-goal shooting percentage over a full season. Has never been a reliable 3-point shot-maker. Somewhat injury-prone. Defensive intensity is sometimes an issue, and while a good athlete he's not very explosive or fast.
Career Potential: All-Star scoring forward.
