Washington Wizards Midseason Player Evaluation: Shelvin Mack

New, comments

We've reached the very midway point of the 2011-12 season, which is kind of refreshing given that the All-Star Break usually signifies the 60-percent mark of the year. As such, we'll be running midseason evaluation threads for each player on the team over the next several days. Next up: Shelvin Mack.

SYNOPSIS: Given where Mack was drafted, it's hard not to be impressed by what he has shown in a limited role, particularly on the defensive end of the floor. If Mack can maintain that kind of production throughout his career, he will have carved out a role as a decent backup point guard. However, his issues offensively have started to become exposed in recent weeks, so he'll need to improve his decisiveness and perimeter shooting if he wants to stick in the league.
