If at 3 the choice is between Suggs and Green , i would choose Suggs
interesting.....i wonder why exactly....i like suggs... i like that he's a great defensive player....terror in transition....intangibles all day....but at the same time.....he's not as good a shooter as you would think....he isn't really a shot creator, he's not really the kind of player you can give the ball to and say give me a bucket he has little shake to his game....Off ball shooting leaves a bit to be desired as i recall correctly 30% catch and shoot? not as good as it should be...i'm not really concerned with him creating for others but rather creating for himself....all in all i don't think he measures up to the upper tier in the top 5 for me but obviously you do so i would love to hear your assessment
Suggs is unselfish. He is a true floor general who makes everyone around him better, always looking to make the extra pass or correct read for the benefit of his team and teammates.
He is an elite passer and playmaker in the halfcourt and especially in transition. He's always looking to push the pace and does so effectively.
He's a great decision maker and he's more than capable of making advanced passes in pick-and-rolls or drive-and-kick situations.
Suggs is at his best when he gets downhill, using his blend of speed and athleticism to get all the way to the rim and score with ease.
He's a good ball-handler and change-of-pace dribbler with an explosive first step, pairing well with his ability to finish strong around the basket with both hands.
Suggs is an athletic finisher with great body control who puts pressure on the rim with powerful drives, inviting and welcoming contact.
He's a solid – but not yet knockdown – shooter who doesn't lack confidence in his jumper with smooth mechanics that should bode well for his development in that area. He had some experience playing off-ball this past season where he showcased a future as a combo guard, active as a cutter while also navigating around screens to get open catch-and-shoot looks.
Defensively, his competitive edge and demeanour shine through with a willingness to take on any assignment. He's a tough on-ball defender with quick feet and active hands and an intelligent off-ball defender with strong anticipation skills.
