Manu was a reckless machine when driving to the basket and he's much more lengthier, making difficult shots at the rim look easy. Alex is more of a simple lay up kind of guy. He's plays softer and much slower and his array of offensive moves is way basic. I see a 15-16 PPG at max potential scorer in Shved.
Agreed. I think the skill sets are somewhat similar (3s and attacking the basket) but Ginobili was known for his recklessness and instinctual play. Very unpredictable sometimes. Shved looks much more under control, but that isn't necessarily a good thing.
Ginobili was also more athletic than Shved at the same age and could penetrate better imo. Shved is much less likely to make dumb mistakes.
