Scouting Report

AssetsAn all-time NBA great at point guard: always pushed the ball at top speed, and always made his teammates better thanks to excellent court vision, great passes, and a team-first attitude. A shut-down defender and an elite ball-thief. One of the game's best-ever rebounding guards.
FlawsWas never a natural or dominant scorer (although he improved his range over the years) and would occasionally disappear as a shooter. Sometimes over-anticipated, getting ahead of teammates (which sometimes led to turnovers).
Career potentialHall of Famer at point guard.
