Overview: One of the League’s best point guards. Relatively tall and very strong for his position. Possesses good quickness and speed, but size is his most useful physical asset. Is able to slide over to shooting guard on occasion without much difficulty. Has a great feel for the game, incredible skills, and is as clutch as they come. Never afraid to take the big shot. Bounced around the League early in his career until he found his way as a point guard. Was named the MVP when the Pistons won the Finals in 2004. Two time All-Star. Detroit’s franchise player.

Offense: One of the most reliable and efficient offensive point guards in the League. Gets almost half of his offensive opportunities in pick and roll situations. Very difficult to guard on the high pick and roll due to his shooting ability. Will stop and pop from just about anywhere. Incredibly consistent stroke with range. Lights out with his feet set. Just as good off the dribble. Won’t go to the rim unless he has a seem. Great at initiating contact and finishing. Goes to the line at a high rate. Money from there too. Shoots a lot of threes. Connects at a pretty good clip. Better in the clutch. Great killer instinct. Doesn’t turn the ball over at all for how much he dribbles. Not a fancy ball handler, but a good one. Not a fancy passer either. Well above average in that aspect of the game. Doesn’t create a ton of shots for his teammates, but that’s because they get open so well. Spaces the floor well, a consummate floor general. Smart and talented, the total package.

Defense: Arguably Detroit’s best on ball defender. Uses his strength advantage to deny dribble penetration. Quick and active hands. Rarely commits a foul despite getting most of his steals on strips and reach ins. Amazing at timing his swipes at the ball and anticipating his man’s moves. Goes straight up when his man pulls up. Almost puts his hand on the shooters face from time to time. Hard for other point guards to post up. Won’t get pushed around making him a handful to get around without contact. Not as apt at guarding the ball the length of the floor like some guards. Very good half court defender. Knows where his help is. Can guard some shooting guards depending on the match up. Can help out on the glass.
