I remember at the end of the rookie season, Jamal couldn't shoot at all and had no range what so ever. He would just drive and be only consistent from the foul line. But this past year, Jamal has created and become a very accurate shooter but lacked the ability to drive. I think the driving had to do with Jamal not having his legs.

I hope so!

I think when you come back from a big injury, it initially makes you tentative. However, I've heard that he's got his legs now and no longer wears the knee brace he had last year. Once he puts that together with the improved shooting over a full season, people will realize how good he is.

if Jamal feels confident in his knee... and begins driving to the bucket on a consistent basis... i will be ecstatic.

i'm still not entirely sure just what kind of player he is -- coming out of Michigan, i had heard he was this smooth, quick guard -- could be a real scorer, and supposedly a passer too (hence all the PG talk)

after the injury, there's all this talk (and evidence) that he's now a shooter, well out to 3pt range. and that's just about all he did was shoot.

well, the shooting was pretty obvious last year, which is definitly great (at least we know he can do something) but all the talk about him being this special talent seems to go back to his ability to put the ball on the floor and drive past his defender. i suppose that's where the question marks about him still are.

i hope he will start driving past people this season. maybe we'll finally get to see what MJ saw last summer
