Strengths
He has next level court vision and explosiveness. His ability to take over a game is one of the many things that separates him from other players. He is the perfect type of point guard to have in this type of NBA. One who can score, assist, and rebound at will.
Weaknesses
He can get careless with the ball and tends to turn the ball over pretty frequently. He also may tend to force shots if he or his team is struggling.
Overall Analysis
Ja has all the attributes to become the face of an NBA franchise. His play style suits the NBA perfectly. His court vision is better than most guards in the NBA and he may be the most explosive player in the league. He is my favorite to win Rookie of the Year. I believe he will eventually win an MVP title as well. Morant shapes up to be one of the best players in the NBA as long as he can transition his game into the NBA.
Compares to
Russell Westbrook, More explosive Magic Johnson
