Scouting Report
Assets: Dominates the whole game and is a constant triple-double threat: scores from all over the court, dishes out copious assists, rebounds like a forward, and piles up steals. Amazingly explosive. Operates at hyper-speed, pushing the ball and pressuring the 'D.' Can blow past defenders with ease and finish over 7-footers regularly.
Flaws: Highly turnover-prone (in part because he handles the ball so much and plays at such a high speed). While a fearless 3-point shooter, he's not very accurate from behind the arc (and can really struggle from there). Additionally, he lacks ideal durability for a superstar.
Career Potential: Explosive do-it-all superstar point guard, and perennial MVP candidate.
