Scouting Report
Assets: One of the NBA's greatest-ever on-court leaders: makes everyone he plays with better. Has uncanny vision, anticipation, ball-handling, and passing skills. Incredibly instinctive and patient breaking down defenses. Arguably the league's most accurate perimeter & free-throw shooter ever.
Flaws: Commits huge turnover totals. More quick than he is fast. Can be posted up on defense and doesn't steal the ball as much as he could / should (although he does a great job taking charges). Injuries have taken a toll with age.
Career Potential: Superstar point guard & future Hall of Famer.
