Scouting Report

AssetsOne of the NBA's all-time greatest perimeter scorers. Had fantastic form on his jumper with a sweet, smooth release and amazing range. Was almost automatic from the charity stripe. Took care of the ball.
FlawsNever a very physical defender and became less a well-rounded scorer as time passed. Became more streaky and injury-prone with age.
Career potentialStar perimeter scorer.
