I would probably describe him as a Rondo/Westbrook fusion, but I agree with a good bit of your post. He doesn't have the body to absorb contact and finish like Wade, so I'd rank his "slash and score" ability below his, but he'll be able to slash and pass with the best of them in a few seasons I believe. His size and length is going to be a HUGE asset in the league, and when you combine that with his elite athleticism and overall touch and feel for the game, you have a pretty unique combination of tools for the point guard position.
