NBA Role: versatile lead guard • Hybrid

Unleash the Dragon: Goran Dragic, Miami’s floor general, has taken full reign over Miami’s backcourt after Dwyane Wade (CHI)’s departure; an inside-out lefty with some crazy, star moves on offense (spin counters, reverse layups, short Js) in the paint, Dragic breaks down defenders like no other – does a nice job of slipping by w/ euros, spinning off defenders for lefty lay-ins; excels in transition – performs best next to athletes on the wing*good playmaker but can get careless with the rock – learning how to slow down the game and make good decisions in Coach Spo’s system – Goran’s making more of a point to move the rock, feed Hassan Whiteside & spot up for triples (this is a necessity because MIA doesn’t feature many natural shooters; working to build a dynamic duo w/ Whiteside – the quicker they mesh, the better MIA’s chances surprise

*James Johnson & Tyler Johnson, for instance

Signature Move: euro • layup
