This is a Jason Kidd scouting report predraft.
Looks like he had trouble finishing. Ball hits at a high % just doesn't drive that much.
Possibly the most gifted non-UCLA center player in the Pac-10. Led nation in assists as soph, led pac-10 as frosh. Voted frosh of the year in 92-93. (National) Pac-10 player of the year, All American. Also was in the top ten in steals last year and this one.
Doubts: Shooting, not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, shot 36% from 3-pt. range this year, and started hitting free throws down the stretch as well. Also has a tendancy to force things, especially in the half court game.Also some tendancies to make spectacular move, then miss the layup. Has trouble finishing.
However, there are no doubts about his desire and talent. Arguably a better passer than Magic Johnson(gasp!), a student of the game. Gives 100% at all times on the court. Is able to dominate a game, without scoring.
