He's also become stronger, developed a decent post game, has improved court vision and gets to the line more.
There are VERY few guards in this league who can dominate on both ends of the court. If we're going to ask him to make that a staple of his game then we'd better be sure that we don't need his points.... because they'll definitely take a hit.
