High bb IQ, great intangibles, willing to do the dirty work, didn't need the ball to be effective...

His two downfall areas were his deficiencies on offense, and that he's a beta, rather than an alpha.
He was a franchise player that never got the chance to see how far he could go leading a talented team. Some people will try to say he failed as a leader cuz he didnt win in 00. But he was 34/35 years old.

The fact is he gets held to a standard a lot of players dont have to meet.
