The risk that Black might never be comfortable shooting just feels unnecessary to me. That, and Black’s highlights simply do not wow me and I feel like highlights should have wow factor, especially for a top-10 prospect. For this supposed floor general, his passes don’t have great zip on them, and he glides more than he bursts. I don’t know. I wanted to like him more but I’m just always underwhelmed.
And before someone says it, I find Wallace’s defensive highlights some of the most exhilarating that I’ve seen in years. I think he has a sneaky high ceiling on offense. He doesn’t have Chauncey Billups’ game, but I’m making a comp in the sense that Billups was a PG that let others make plays and let the ball come back to him. He was always wildly under-appreciated because his game wasn’t showy but he was always slowly polishing it.
