@LosAngelesWolverine1 Thought I’d bring this over here.
I think that’s the point he was making, you aren’t going to just knife through an NBA defense. Should he take two point jumpers if he can get to the paint or hit an open guy? No, so I agree with you there. BUT, he’s a bad free throw shooter so you can assume it translates a little to his non-mid range game.
Regarding contact, I would also add if you’re a 6’6" guard, you should at least be willing to post up small guards. He doesn’t do that either. Goes to shying away from contact.
I think my biggest overlooked thing is the kid hasn’t had to handle a shred of adversity. Part of that is he’s that good so his teams are good. How’s he going to handle being on a bad team and losing? How’s he going to handle not being the best player on the court? How’s he going to handle not having the best talent around him anymore?
Either way, absolutely he’s been spectacular and going to get drafted high. End of the day I don’t take him top 5 if I’m a GM.
