Offense: Incredibly quick
, with a thick, stocky build. Thrives in transition and puts tremendous pressure on the defense. A very good ball-handler
. Can create his own shot and blow by his man, but doesnít do a great job reading defenses and making plays for others. Decision making is questionable, prone to mental lapses. Runs into brick walls, and struggles to find a rhythm between being too aggressive or too passive. Pounds the ball excessively at times. Can find the open man, but is not what you would call a floor general. Outside shot is extremely streaky, which makes defenses sag off him and hurts the teamís offensive flow. Has great elevation on his jumper
, though, and seems to have made some strides in that area. Must not fall in love with it, as he tends to do at times. Has talent, and can put points on the board, but needs to mature and find the right situation.
Defense: A ball-hawk who can really lock down
when he puts his mind to it. Puts tremendous pressure on the defense
, gets in his manís grill and stays in his shorts until he gives the ball up. Has great strength, length and lateral quickness
, and the mentality to capitalize on it
. Not smart enough on this end of the floor, though. Needs to do a better job reading screens, not gambling, and fouling less. Uses his hands a bit too much.
