NBA Role: post-up playmaker Hybrid

Shaun Livingston: a quintessential UnderDOG who overcame a devastating, early knee injury to win an NBA Finals trophy in 2015; a former prep-to-pros star who entered the league w/ buzz, Livingston has aged gracefully into a post-up guard who uses his size (6’7) to rise up over smaller PGs for turnaround jumpers; impossible to stop his behind the back dribble – small PGs have no chance; cold. in the post*breakdown into a post-gather-turnaround is rare**; extremely high basketball IQ – it’s not often you see Shaun take a bad shot or commit a silly turnover when it matters most; completely reinvented himself and never tried to overcompensate for what he struggles w/  – Livingston remains an invaluable member of the Dubs’ second unit despite not being able to knock down threes*** – says a lot about the rest of his game

*Livingston leads the ‘post-up’ pack at PG

**DeMar D. specializes in it, not many others can pull it off
