Scouting Report
Assets: 'Rip' is a superb mid-range scorer: quick, smart, smooth, and gets separation. Consistently beats defenders who overplay him by going hard to the hoop. Hits for high percentages (from the field and freebie line) and is a very good passer who can play some point guard.
Flaws: Has always lacked muscle mass, and is wearing down with age. Can be streaky from beyond the arc. While a solid on-ball defender he's not a big ball thief or rebounder.
Career Potential: Aging star shooting guard.
