C.J. McCollum = Jason Terry?

After giving it a great deal of thought (which is sometimes hard for me to do) I see CJ as a carbon copy of Jason Terry from the early 2000's....

1) Both guys are smallish combo guards who are much more adept at creating their own shot than they are for others, however they can distribute when called upon.

2) They run the PnR game very, very well.

3) Both are decent run/jump athletes (nothing spectacular) but their quickness is at/close to an elite level.

4) Both are filthy good shooters either with their feet set or off the dribble.

5) Both can be a pretty big liability on defense, especially if asked to guard a bigger 2-guard.

Because of this, I think CJ has the ability to be an elite 6th man in the future, or a starter on a mid-level team. Not a franchise guy by any means, but he can be a very useful offensive player if put in the right situation.

I think he's better than Terry was at creating for himself, he has really good handles. .

^its funny you say that,

^its funny you say that, because if I had to give either one the edge in ball-handling i'd give a slight edge to JET...

SmH people forget JET was a good starting Pg in Atlanta

I like CJ a lot but Terry was so much better than him at this stage of their career's...Jet could pass the ball well too, he slide into his role as 6th manin Dallas because Kidd and Dirk needed a spark off the bench...I think Terry could have continued to play Pg if he had never left Atlanta or went on to play for a different team...

C.J reminds me of Lou Williams , both are crafty combo guards with good handles and range, able to create offense for themselves and shoot off the dribble...Both guys are defensive liabilities and best suited for 6th man duty, but both guys can flat out score though and will be around for years to come

McCollum led the Patriot

McCollum led the Patriot League in steals two years in a row with over 2.5 per game. He lead the league in defensive win shares in 11-12. He hasn't been tested at the NBA level yet, but I think it's too early to call him a liability considering he's been a two way player up to this point in his career.

Mccollum also grabbed 8

Mccollum also grabbed 8 rebounds a game as a sophomore when his role was slightly different on lehigh that season. Thats a lot for a 6 foot 3 pg/sg and proves to me that he's got the ability to step up and do all sorts of other things when called upon.

Nah, I see alot of Randy Foye in this guy. McCollum isn't all that quick from what I saw.

mcollum best comparison is

mcollum best comparison is Lillard. Not as good driving and finishing but a more deadly shooter. Both have similiar profile and swagger

Terry in his prime was a very

Terry in his prime was a very good run/jump athlete, he was lightning quick, could push the ball from one side of the court to the other in no time and was able to dunk being only 6'2.
Foye is stronger and played always on the wing for 'Nova, he wasn't and still isn't as good as McCollum as a ball handler and shooting off the dribble
