Scouting Report
Assets: Arguably, he's the most well-rounded player in NBA history. On offense he's an elite passer, and when teams crowd him he's one of greatest drivers ever, a freight train with amazing finishing ability. He's also immensely clutch as a shooter. Defensively he can shut down any position. He's also a great leader and ambassador for the game.
Flaws: His shooting stroke can be inconsistent when the game isn't on the line: he's only average on 3-pointers, and can be a bit streaky on free throws (despite drawing a copious number of fouls). Commits his share of turnovers because he has the ball so much.
Career Potential: Superstar, all-time great combo forward.
