He looked like he could be a 2nd ballhandler, like a Butler or Hayward. That's very useful.
Ball handling and playmaking - meh. Didn't seem good enough for a 1st or 2nd ballhandler on a team. The 3rd or 4th ballhandlers are just not that useful.
Jackson displayed pretty good ball-handling, playmaking and defensive skills both in college and last season.
Chiss and Jackson.
When they draft guys who are better when they arrive at age 18 or 19 than they are at age 21 or 22 thatís a huge developmental issue. Donít forget Chriss, who looked like a steal initially.
The Suns are the worst young talent development team in the league. or worst young talent drafting team.
Chriss might have attitude problems though, based on reports I've read
Run, jump... what are the other skills they have?
Chriss could never really do anything but dunk
Defense - IMO he is 1 number smaller (shoulders, hips) than those leagues really good wing defenders. If he wants to stay in the league he should see defensive end as his bread. The offense, shooting in particular, just isn't there.
I didn't notice any advanced dribbling moves or some superior vision.
It was more like; I have the ball a lot, I am fast and I go.
That worked some on collegian level (kids), It wouldn't work in Europe, let alone NBA.
And If you don't have a jumper it diminishes the effectiveness of his playmaking and driving game even further.
