Randy Livingston today proved again why he remains one of the best stories in minor-league basketball, and a perennial call-up candidate. With the way the veteran guard sees the floor, you would think he has eyes all the way around his head. The Idaho offense ran like a well-oiled machine with him on the court, particularly in the half-court offense where Livingston was constantly coaching his team on the floor as well as perfectly placing the ball.
Though his shooting form still looks awkward, the guards accuracy from behind the arc is quite impressive this season. Livingstons shooting percentage sits in the high 30s right now on over four attempts from long range on the season. On the drive, Livingston also shoots the mid-range jumper if open and can even occasionally carve out some space posting up with his wide body to create lay-up opportunities.
At the age of 32, Livingston lacks great mobility partially due to a high level of wear and tear on his knees. This can be compensated for offensively with good screens and the way he uses his body, but it does hurt the veteran on the other end of the floor, as well as in terms of conditioning. Still, his experience and leadership could be valuable to a number of NBA teams right now. There are some rumors that he is very close to getting bought out and signing a deal with a team in the Spanish ACB.
