Wow. I'm really surprised at most of the opinions on this thread. I love AB as a player. I think he is good enough that he will be an all star someday.
We all know about his defense, I won't even go into it except to say that he is very, very good defensively. Offensively, he can get his own shot. He is one of the few young guys that is comfortable shooting off the dribble. His jump shot is much better than it appears right now, imo. He is not going to be a great 3 point shooter, but his mid range game has the chance to be very good in time. Right now he does not finish well, but that is CERTAIN to improve in time. He is a poor passer, but he moves very well without the ball. I can see him scoring 15-18 ppg, efficiently, in time. Upside might even be higher.
The thing with AB is that he is most certainly NOT a point guard. He is a 2, albeit an undersized one. I don't think a backcourt of AB and Rondo works in the longterm as a result. As Tommy says, if you are going to be that small, you have to play up tempo basketball- which right now we don't have the personnel to do except in spurts. Besides, I'm not convinced AB will ever be a great fastbreak player, it's just not his game. Bottom line is that I don't think he really fits with this team as it is currently constituted, but I still love him as a player.
