Kenny Smith '97
Incredible Offensive pg!
Written by SyracuseOrangeSuperFan
This Ruby Kenny Smith looks insane. He gives you everything you need on offense. Try copping him before people realize how good he is.
Bought for: 6.5k MT
Shooting: With a 90 3 and 87 mid, this guy is a sniper. Unlike Drose who can only drive to the basket, Kenny Smith will be able to hit shots from the outside all day. Gold Catch-and-Shoot, Corner Specialist, Flexible Release, Green Machine, Hot Zone Hunter(he's got a lot of them actually), and silver Deadeye only make him better. Silver difficult shots also helps him hit leaners easily. The release is super quick as well. This is one of the best shooters in the game.
Slashing: 88 speed, 90 speed w/ball, and 88 acceleration are FANTASTIC. 2k also gave him 86 ball handle. Not only does he have incredible stats, Kenny's also got those important badges. Gold Unpluckable, Silver Downhill and QFS, and bronze handles for days make him simply too good.
Playmaking: Gold Needle Threader, Silver Dimer and Floor General are some of the important badges that this card comes with. An elite passer for sure.
Finishing: 86 driving layup and 80 driving dunk along with some nice finishing badges, Kenny can finish his drive very well. Weaknesses:
Defense: No Clamps(or any defensive badges for that matter), that's all I gotta say. This is a pretty big problem, but he does come with 85 lateral quickness. 6'3 with a 6'6 wingspan ain't bad at this point in the game too. In general though this card's main weakness is defense.
Sigs: NGL this card's dribble sigs are ass.
Rebounding: Absolutely horrific rebounding(stats in the 30s + no badges), but he's a PG so it don't matter.
Release: I mentioned before that it was really quick, but for some people it's kinda ugly. However this is not a big weakness at all. Recommended Strategy: Run through him on offense, he can do it all. On defense try to hide him.
Use if: You want one of the best offensive point guards in the game, and a cheap budget card.
Don't use if: You need a clamp god at the PG spot; for this use Mo Cheeks.
Bottom Line: In my opinion, the best budget PG in the game
