Scouting Report
One of the most explosively quick players ever. Electric one-on-one, and--when on his game--can get into the lane almost at will. Creates shots for himself and his teammates, and really excels in the open court. Has shown ability to take over games as both a scorer and distributor. Clutch as well. Has a major history of knee injuries, and they've sapped some of his trademark explosiveness. Now spends too much time on the perimeter (rather than living in the lane and drawing fouls), and he isn't a top-tier 3-point shooter to compensate. Has never been much of a steals guy or rebounder, and is prone to turnovers.
Long Range Potential: Star offensive point guard on the decline.
