Evaluation: Rose has a variety of scoring moves between his step-back jumper, spin move to get by his defender in the lane and NBA range beyond the three-point line. Although Rose is able to score a lot, he’s a true point guard since he has great court vision, good passing skills, the ability to manage a game and the ability to create scoring opportunities for his teammates. Rose knows when to push the tempo or slow the game down into a half-court setting and is a good ball-handler with a high basketball-IQ. However, he lacks great quickness and speed and needs to improve the consistency on his perimeter shot.
