NBA Scouting Reports, Atlantic Division (Part One)
November 30, 2008

Overview: Incredibly experienced and accomplished player with one of the most complete resumes in the NBA. One of the best 3-point shooters in NBA history. A 8-time NBA All-Star. Outstanding scorer who changes the game with his perimeter shooting ability. A deadly weapon coming off screens and spotting up with his feet set. More than just a spot-up shooter, very much capable of creating his own shot and finding other ways to score. Also an excellent teammate who understands the game and is willing to make players around him better. Possesses a terrific basketball IQ. Considered one of the “good guys” of the sport. Getting older, but still highly effective. Had an outstanding career at UConn, winning Big East Player of the Year honors in his junior season. Won a Gold medal with Team USA in 2000 and an NBA Championship in 2008. Gained notoriety for playing Jesus Shuttleworth in Spike Lee’s “He Got Game.”

Offense: The 2nd leading 3-point shooter in NBA history, behind Reggie Miller. Possesses one of the prettiest strokes in the entire league, complete with effortless mechanics, beautiful follow-through, deep range, and outstanding touch. Excellent shooter from a stand-still, but also very much capable of knocking down contested shots with a hand in his face—actually excels doing so. Outstanding moving off the ball and using screens. Smooth player who can handle the ball equally well with either hand. Uses the threat of his shot extremely well to create shots for himself inside the arc. Not just a 3-point shooter. Takes what defenses give him. Can drive to the rim left or right, but tends to pull-up when driving left. Has an outstanding mid-range game. Excellent at pulling up off the dribble. Not a great finisher due to average strength, but gets to free throw line at a solid rate thanks to his craftiness and aggressiveness, and knocks down his shots at a 90%+ clip. Very good passer, not selfish in the least bit. Extremely efficient. Very mistake-free. Just an average athlete in terms of his first step and overall explosiveness, making him best suited as a second or third option.

Defense: Puts in the effort, and understands how to maximize himself, but possesses average lateral quickness, which limits his effectiveness. Relies too much on his hands as he is losing his ability to contain his man off the dribble. Savvy enough to get by at this point in his career, and does have a few tricks up his sleeve he can go to. A solid rebounder for his position.
