Scouting Report
Assets: A complete player: brought the skills of a point guard and the frame of a forward. Smooth and effortless. Excelled at every position except center and could carry his team either as a scorer or a playmaker. Worked hard on defense. A classy leader on and off the court.
Flaws: Serious injuries robbed him of big parts of several seasons in the prime of his career, also sapping some of his superstar explosiveness. Age and declining durability eventually limited his minutes and made him more of a role player.
Career Potential: Do-it-all star swingman and leader.
