Too much hype on him already.. We'll see how he does next year.

Looking forward to seeing him play at the college level. Looks explosive off the dribble. Hopefully he can do some other things well

even without his left hand he's probably a better scorer at the guard than anyone on the raptors other than leandro

He's gonna be a nice player when he bulks up a bit. He's got range and can get into the lane. Some nice mid-range floaters in that mix as well. Will need to see how he fares against more physical competition ... he looks like a stick!

I've seen longer videos of him... he's really not much of a dribbler to be honest. This video portrays him having good handles but he doesn't really.

His game is outside shooting. The Curry analogy is perfect. He's not as good as a shooter but his ball handling may be better then Curry's was as a h.s. senior.

It's interesting to see how he performs in college. Some draft sites project him to be a lottery pick but he won't be as good as Curry imo.

I'm guessing he's more athletic than Curry based off genetics. But then again I don't know anything about the Mom's.

I watched a whole game of his, and he actually reminded me more of Monta Ellis than Steph Curry.

Also his handles seem more than adequate. St. Patrick's(New Jersey) was throwing the house at him to stop him. His teammates are next to worthless so honestly I don't see why that is a knock on him. If I was in his position I wouldn't be a willing to passer to any of them either.

he's got bad shooting form (elbow sticks way too out) but he's been a good shooter so far. however these little fundamental flaws tend to get exposed in the nba so i'm skeptical on how he'll fare as far as scoring goes.
Lin is like that ex-girlfriend to bitter Knicks fans. They swear she's no good and they're better off without her, but they can't stop talking about her every opportunity they get.

They'll Work On His Stroke At Duke And Whoever Drafts Him Will Finish The Tweaks. He'll Become A Better Fundamental Shooter If He Puts In The Work.
