NBA ROLE: ALL-AROUND STAR FORWARD

 

13 years in, Paul Millsap is a legit vet in this game but remains one of the more underappreciated players in basketball – won’t make waves or headlines but literally does his job better than 80% of his peers – 4x All-Star; confident playmaker and scorer on the elbow – faces up about as well as anyone – slick drives after faking, nice stop and popper step back, reliable midrange game; sneaky creative: catches the ball and swiftly goes to the cup (after unleashing a baby crossover) in one fell swoop; inventive OTD: can score off spins & crossovers: more agility than meets the eye; game continues to evolve: added consistent three-point shooting a couple years back; quietly demands respect – looking to contend in Denver
