Overview: A young point guard who has fallen on hard times recently, when many thought he would be hitting his stride. A heady player with solid size and athleticism, but wins his individual matchup by out-thinking and outworking his opponent. Good player across the board offensively, but his shot has been hit or miss recently. Had a great career at Kansas. Got better in each of his seasons in college. He hasn’t been vocal in Chicago despite his recent struggles, and has struggled badly with inconsistency.

Offense: Has had an uncharacteristically bad time shooting the ball this season. Shoots a good looking jumper, but he simply hasn’t been connecting with his outside shots. Gets about half of his offense off of pick and rolls and another fifth from spot up opportunities. Tends to drive left in half court sets substantially more often than right, and pulls up for jumpers more frequently than he takes the ball to the basket. Not as much of a shot-creator at the end of shot-clocks as his team might need. Doesn’t get to the free throw line enough, where he shoots a very high percentage. 2007-2008 has been a down year for him, but he is a hard worker and should bounce back over time.

Defense: Really a throwback in terms of defensive intensity. Gets in a good stance and does his best to hawk the ball all game long. Will get a steal every now and again by reaching at the right time, but isn’t overly aggressive. Doesn’t always get the best of his individual matchup, but it is never because it isn’t trying. Has good enough quickness and speed to keep up with most starting point guards. Lack of muscle can hurt him from time to time.
