My opponent forfieted....
First: He already averages enough points for a point guard. He averages about 12 points per game since his sophomore year in the NBA. and in the playoffs, he averages 14.5 points per game. These numbers clearly show that he has other scoring options than the mid-range jump shot.
Second: He is an incredible play maker. During his last three seasons, he averaged about 11 assists per game, and he lead the league in assists in the previous two seasons. And let's not forget that he holds the record for the second most double digit assist games in a row. A player who can assist at will is more impressive in my eyes than a player who can score at will, and these numbers prove my point.
Third: He is an amazing rebounder for his size. During his career he averaged 4.5 rebounds per game during the regular season. and during the playoffs he averages 6 rebounds per game. That is just amazing.
Fourth: His defense. He is a great defender; he is consistently among the league leaders in steals.
Looking at all the things that he brings to the table, one can clearly see that he deserves more credit than he actually gets, and even though he shot 64.5% from the line this season; his shooting isn't terrible and it definitely doesn't immediately make him a player who is a liability at the 4th quarter.
