Overview:One of the best point guards in NBA history, a sure-fire hall of famer. 9-time All-Star. Named rookie of the year in 1995. 6-time first or second All-NBA team. 9-time all-defensive team. Has phenomenal size for the point guard position, to go along with an incredible basketball IQ. A triple-double waiting to happen. Drafted 2nd overall by Dallas in 1994, returned there 14 years later, likely to close out his career.
Offense: A floor general in every sense. Pass-first point guard who does an outstanding job of controlling the tempo of the game. Plays the game at his own pace, and makes everyone around him better. Vision, creativity are extraordinary. Excellent decision maker with tremendous poise and intelligence. Terrific in transition, and a master of the pick and roll. Sees over the top of defense and possesses incredible passing ability. A very good ball-handler with either hand, excellent at incorporating hesitation moves to keep defenders off-balance. Does not get to the free throw line at a high rate at this point in his career, and is a fairly poor finisher around the rim. Has clearly lost some of his explosiveness in recent years. Has never been known as an incredible scorer, much more comfortable as a passer. Has shot around 40% from the field for much of his career. A decent 3-point shooter, particularly with his feet set. Struggles knocking down shots off the dribble. Doesnít get much elevation on his jumper. Doesnít take all that many shots considering how many minutes he plays.
Defense: Considered one of the top defenders in the NBA for much of the past decade. Lateral quickness not what it used to be, but his combination of size, strength, timing, fundamentals and smarts still make him formidable in that regard. Defends multiple positions, 2ís and sometimes even 3ís, and is often more effective there at this point his career. Struggles staying in front of quicker, slashing guards. Has great hands and is excellent at getting in the passing lanes. One of the top rebounding point guards in NBA history.
