Tony was doing that in his rookie year and before he came to the NBA. His issue was strength and stamina back then. He could get to the cup constantly but couldn't always finish for those same reasons. Speedy was good but had nothing to do with Tony tailoring his game driving to the basket. He had that already. Not picking up Speedy's option was not a great move by RC and Pop either way.
