Jay Williams '03
Written by coanr
So far I have used Jay Williams as my starting shooting guard after getting the game a couple weeks ago and he has done pretty solid averaging 7.8 PPG and 5.3 APG while only turning the ball over 0.8 TOPG. He is a card that the stats do not tell the full story which I will more describe below.
Bought for: Collector's Item (60 cards)
-Ball Control: 86, Speed with Ball: 96 | He is a great facilitator from the 1 or the 2 spot, can get in the paint and make plays while also being able to score, Driving Layup: 82 -Driving Dunk: 50, Vertical: 86 | Although he is only a 6'2" point guard with a 50 driving dunk, both me and my friend Carmen have the same experience with being able to throw down dunks over Power Forwards with no badges. Very underrated at the statistic. -Open Shot Mid: 84 | Very consistent mid range shooter and also very good at creating own mid range shot using his handle.
-Open Shot 3pt: 83 | Most people would say I'm crazy, however numbers and multiple witnesses who have seen his release (which isn't too bad) just know that he does not make a lot of 3's, however is cash from mid-range as I said above. He shot 23% from deep for me through 13 games. -Free Throw: 68 | The release again isn't bad, however a 68 from a solid shooter, c'mon man. -Rebounding: 44 | Yes, he is a guard, but sometimes can be exposed to taller 2-guards like Klay or some people play Devin Booker and cannot rebound for his life.
Recommended Strategy: If you use him at the shooting guard, have good rebounders on the court with him. Main position is point guard and pick and roll's are very successful.
Use if: You need a facilitating 2-guard.
Don't use if: You need a knockdown shooter.
Bottom Line: Solid play if you can knockdown mid-range, and crash the boards with others.
