Gets to the line often, great first step is main weapon
Hustles, gets his own rebounds, dives after loose balls
Strong body type similar to Dwyane Wade, a compact 6'5
Midrange Jumpshot, especially at the top of the key
Solid defender, ballhawk
Needs to finish better, too many layups rolled off the rim this year
3-point shooting needs to improve
More of a combo-guard than PG, needs to improve assist/turnover ratio
Can look out of control and commit offensive fouls from time to time
Missed 1/2 season with a broken wrist
Best Case: A not as highflying Dwyane Wade
Worst Case: Stephon Marbury with a better attitude
He just needs to improve his FG% around the basket and his point guard vision. Everything else is there. He can be the starting PG for Detroit for a long time to come. Remember Chauncey started out in the league as a combo guard. Chauncey seems like a good guy to have around as a rookie and will help him become a better player. I think Aflallo is a good compliment to him and they have worked well so far as a tandem. I praise Joe D's ability to find a probable future allstar with the 13th pick.
