Dude is a jet and his ability as the on-ball screen ballhandler is at an elite level relative to his NBL counterparts. Deserves to be looked at by NBA clubs but whilst his overall package is impressive, does he offer an outstanding "specialist" skill that NBA teams are often looking for to fill out their benches?

He is an elite shooter. I think a lot of people underestimate just how damn well he strokes it.

From memory he made 43% of his 3s last season - which was pretty impressive given a) he took a lot of them and b) he was scouted a lot harder last season and teams were weary of what he could do.

As Ive always said, if you had Corey in Tai's body you have a clear NBA SG who could have spent years in the league.

Such a shame that he turned out to be 6"1 :(

Yer good point about his height. If only he was NBA shooting guard height.

Guys, the guy can play and I always thought he was NBA standard, but his height isn't the issue, he is taller than Patty Mills, he has speed and can flat out play!

The fact that he can shoot it at an incredible clip is a bonus and obviously helps him get noticed...
