Michael has a strong frame and causes mismatches for either the opposing SG or PG. He’s a lefty shooter who shoots the three ball at a high rate. Offensively he is multi-faceted, as he cannot only hit the outside shot, but he has the athleticism and body to go to the paint and score against anyone. He is very good with the ball in his hands, changing directions and speeds at a very fast pace. Michael is not only a threat offensively, but he is a solid defender. Michael relishes in guarding the opposing team’s best guard. He has the size and strength to guard bigger SGs but also possesses the quickness to stay with quick PGs.
