I wouldn't so "overrated" fits because he can break people down 1 on 1 better than pretty much anybody in the NBA outside of Kyrie and CP3. Although I agree with your point which is often times the 3-4 fancy moves are more flash than substance. Like you said one or two basic moves would have a similar result which tells me he does it mostly for style points, nothing wrong with that.
