Not many have Manu's court vision though. Good pick up to me!
Hoopshype's profile agrees with you on the better handle, but another part of the description worries me a little: HoopsHype - NBA Players - Marco Belinelli
Great outside shooter... Excellent shooting threes in transition... Good ballhandler... Very coordinated... Not very strong... Doesn't make teammates better... Subpar quickness and athleticism.
That is a pretty provocative thing to add to a player's profile, but as I said before, I haven't really seen him play, so I'm not too familiar with his game.
Well, it looks like the Spurs have crossed the Rubicon and alea iacta est
(the die is cast). So lets hope for the best and GO SPURS GO
