Steve Francis '01

Short paragraph summarizing the review and how you used the player
Bought for: Packed
Strengths:: Very easy to learn and use release and most of my shots with him are green. He excels at getting the ball where it needs to be without throwing it away. I run him at the 2 because too many people run magic at the 1 and he still facilitates very well. He is a decent finisher at the rim and bangs on any center that doesn't have HOF Rim protecter. He also has some of the bast dribble animations on a card that i've used this year and he creates a lot of separation with his deadly crossover. He also plays like a shot-creater and will knock down most fadeaway mid-ranges, even though i have yet to get a green doing so.
- Rebounding: As a 6'3 guard who is usually guarded by taller opponents, this card ti not very good rebounding wise, but he will snag over centers about 20% when he is not boxed out.
- Although he has a very nice release, he is a bit streaky in terms of shooting. When he gets cold, I recommend driving inside and kicking out to get assists.
Recommended Strategy: "Drive 1v1, create space off dribbling and shoot, mid range pull-up/ fade-away, transition 3's and driving and kicking out.
Use if: "You want an athletic playmaking point guard that can shoot"
Don't use if: "You need a large guard that can rebound over people running sf's at pg
