Streaky shooter
Does not collect enough steals or blocks

Summary:

Phil Booth is a smart, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He is a shot maker that can get buckets from anywhere on the court, and he also may be a better than advertised playmaker and athlete.  However, sometimes he can be inconsistent in games, which may hurt his shooting percentages.  Right now, Booth may be a borderline second round candidate for the upcoming draft.
