He's got quick hands, steals the ball as well as anyone in the NBA, has a fantastic cross over dribble, and gets to the line a lot for the time he's playing. But he can't shoot anywhere near consistent, ignores or freezes out teammates, and can be posted up with impunity. Also has the worst attitude in the NBA, bar no one.

The guy ridicules the need to practice, has thrown up a few 3 for 22 games lately, and then throws a Pippen-esque hissy when he's told he's not starting. The guy is clearly an egomaniac.
Yeah - he's a great player. So what? His team made it to the Finals once in his 8 years and that team had some very good players on it. I wouldn't want him on my team. He can't shoot. He'll score if he gets 30 shots a game and gets to the line often. He's a great scorer and defender...he's just a horrible shooter and a ballhog and obviously is a horrible team-mate. That said, he's exciting to watch, but I wouldn't want him on my team.
If he didn't have a killer cross-over he'd most likely still be sitting in a Virginia prison....lucky bastard.
