Scouting Report
An elite all-round point guard: selfless, efficient, and creative as a distributor, and an accurate and balanced scorer. Lightning-quick and fearless driving and dishing, with fantastic one-on-one moves. Piles up steals and keys transition. An excellent leader too, on and off the court. While he plays much bigger than his size, his diminutive frame takes a lot of pounding in the lane (leading to durability issues). Turnovers are a challenge too (since he handles the ball so much). Not much of a rebounder due to his size.
Long Range Potential: Superstar point guard (when healthy).
