Scouting Report
Assets: 'Matrix' was one of the best defensive forwards in NBA history, and an explosively athletic scorer who dominated in transition. Very long, yet also very fast. Could defend any position. A team-first player who developed an all-round game. Took good care of the ball and didn't foul much at all.
Flaws: Struggled a bit in half-court setups since his style was more suited to an up-tempo game. Wasn't much of a passer or ball-handler (and sometimes needed someone to get him the ball on offense). Had a highly unorthodox outside shot and was streaky on treys.
Career Potential: All-Star combo forward / Hall of Fame talent.
