UPDATE: A nice link with quote from his college coach.
Lots of dunks and transition ball in these videos which I love but really, his big time strength is his beautiful 3pt shot. He can shoot so well in spot up, off the screen and off the dribble all very well. Not to mention he has a great IQ and gets a bunch of assists while still scoring at a very high clip. That transition stuff is what we need though. Dame needs help and Batum+Rice+Dame in transition is just nasty because all function very well in the break and all pass that ball very well too.
Geez, I read this article on him and went "Wow" who is this guy?? Seems like he didn't get a lot of run early in the season and then when the playoffs started he quickly curb-stomped everyone. Not to mention he shot 39% from 3pt line. The D League uses the NBA 3pt line right? 40in Max Vert? 6-6 with shoes on too. Loves to run the break too, we NEED so much more of this. He looks like a Tyreke Evans kind of guy who can actually shoot. Love his eurostep. He isn't a hardcore defender but certainly has the physical tools and already makes defensive plays off the ball. Though lets be real, there aren't a lot of talented 2 guards out there anymore besides Harden in the West Coast. Imagine Portland actually being able to run the fast break...
