Polish: Styes is always attacking, whether he’s knifing through the lane or knocking down one-dribble pull-ups, but he’s also an underrated playmaker on the offensive end. Typically, Styles commands a significant amount of attention and has developed the ability to draw the defense and find the open man. His vision and feel are underrated.
