Scouting Report

AssetsBrought superb decision-making and vision, plus the ability to score clutch baskets. Very quick and highly skilled, and an efficient distributor. Rarely missed a free-throw. Also a tough defender, a hard worker, an excellent leader, and a winner.
FlawsRebounding was never a strength, and he sometimes played a little too much on the perimeter at both ends of the floor. Became a little injury-prone with age and wore down more easily than in the past. Took awhile to find his game in the NBA.
Career potentialVeteran star combo guard & leader.
