Scouting Report
Assets: One of the greatest ever at finding high-percentage shots for his teammates. Had an uncanny ability to break down defenses and lead his offense to great scoring runs. Also a fantastic pure shooter from everywhere in the offensive zone. A true leader on the court and a great ambassador for the game.
Flaws: Commited huge turnover totals and didn't steal the ball much. Could get posted up on defense (although he did a great job taking charges). His fearless, high-octane style took its toll with fairly regular nagging injuries.
Career Potential: Superstar point guard & future Hall of Famer.
