I agree. My major points there:
1) He's 20 years old.
2) He didn't even play PG full time at Texas. So he is early on the learning curve yet.
3) In college, he was been lauded for his defense, playmaking, athleticism, and outside shot.
4) Played this year without the benefit of summer league or real training camp.
