There was one play in particular last night that gave me hope for his passing
skills going forward.

He put the ball on the floor to start his move, the double-team came, and he passed to an open shooter on the perimeter (I don't remember who). That was the first time I can recall seeing him make the pass after starting his move. Prior to that, he would hold the ball, look for the double-team, and decide to either pass (sometimes) or work on getting his shot off (most of the time). I can't remember seeing him ever breaking off his move to pass the ball once he started it.

If he can make that a consistent part of his game, he will become deadly. Up until now, a good defensive strategy has been to wait until he puts the ball on the floor, then come hard with the double-team. But if he can continue to keep his head up as he makes his move and look for the open teammate when that late double comes, teams will have to think harder about employing that strategy. And if teams feel like they can't double him so much, then he will be just about unstoppable.
