contest ... Tall and very quick for a point guard, with a killer crossover and an extremely explosive first step ... Can get to the rim seemingly at will, and is a strong finisher at the net ... Scored most of his points driving to the basket, but can be a decent spot-up shooter ... Needs work on his jump shot and shooting consistency, but not much else ...
