He was a master of so many things, even the negative things I could say about him are kind of positive considering all he accomplished. I mean he was a master of cheesing contact and calls, went to the Paul Pierce institute. He was fairly predictable, almost like a guy you would guard on the playground. If he went right, he was driving, if he went left, he was pulling up. And yet he has dropped a shitload of points in his career and won three titles.
He haa great footwork, textbook ways to square up and attack.
I really liked him at Marquette and pegged him as a star but I have to say he has exceeded my highest expectations. It's kind of unfortunate that he entered the league older than most and also started having injuries hamper him a little sooner than most stars.
I don't think he is better than Kobe or Jerry West. I would probably take Hondo over him. Being in the top 5 ain't shabby, and he might be there, I'd have to think about it.
And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
