He cant create his own shot and his shooting mechanics are inconsistent. So chances are that in NBA he cant play neither with the ball (ballhandler) nor off the ball (shooter), hence complete liability in offense.Spoiler:
He already struggles to slash in NCAA, what happens in NBA? Culver, Okogie at least have athleticism and can slash. Haliburton is 175lbs, slender frame.
He is 3-17 in late clock situations, because of lack of strength, cant shoot pull up Js, he struggles to dribble, pass, finish with left hand. I'd be happy to get him with BRO pick, but not in top5.
If you want to claim he should stay in college one more year to fill in a bit and work on finer areas so be it. That I would often suggest for many. But I don't hear you claiming perfection is needed from anyone else. Especially our tops picks. When was the last time you demanded perfection from any of our top 10 picks? And how do you stare a .666 TS capable prospect's name in the face and speak so negatively about any of his shooting moments? I'f he's shooting well over 40% from 3 and 55-60 some percent from 2, but you are still dogging him about whatever you can find I swear its a sickness. Because if you've found the couple unique areas he needs more work at that were failures, imagine how much better he was in every other area to still attain a .600s+ TS. None of you are reporting on the "late clock situations" or "in the paint shooting" or whatever individually on all these other scrubs you want so badly with that early pick. All many of you are pointing to with these players is defense they've proven. Well I'm standing up saying that's not enough, and Halibut's defense isn't a tier below anyone mentioned so far. He simply appears to have more to work with already to go along with defense.
