First thing I need to say is by no means is this a BAD card, it just shouldn't be a galaxy opal. He is a great 3 and D player but it's pretty difficult to run the offense through him just because he is very limited on what moves he can pull off. His defense I will say is lockdown on pretty much every guard he played against for me. His jumper could be better but it's easy to green wide open. I used him both as an isolation player and as a spot up I could go to when I need a bucket. He by far plays better when you let him play as more of a role player in your offense. He does come with 3 pt plays. Bought for: 180k (XB1)


  • Perimeter shooting
  • Defense
  • Speed
  • Better layup and dunk animations then you'd expect, finishes really well
  • Moving Shots


  • Height
  • Inconsistent
  • Dunk ratings for a galaxy opal

Recommended Strategy: Plays better on offense in short spurts, can't dominate for 4 quarters

Other Comments: Has a decent player model, from what I can tell he has an above average wingspan

Use if: You need one of the best 3 and D cards in the game

Don't use if: You're looking for a dominant player to carry your team

Bottom Line: Much cheaper then all the rest of the actionable galaxy opals (4 at the time of this post) If you can get him for under 120-130k bid I think he's worth it

    Man, I disagree with some of what you said. They're no pink diamonds really better than this card. His handle is as good as anyone's, with amazing stop and go quickness and I think his jumpshot is buttery smooth. If he was 3 inches taller he'd be twice as expensive. For the price, might be the best card on the auction house.


    Limited Brandon Roy is cheaper and is much better


    Diamond Tmac is better than this card too. Hedo at the 2 smokes him too.
    I would in all honesty rather run Ruby Huerter (call me crazy if you want) than C.J, just based on height and release


    Same with Michael porter junior


    For sure ;) He is a GOD although not the best to play SG


    I don't personally but he could
