Cohen Courtside: Storylines vs. Mavs
Cohen’s Analysis: While not quite in the same class or grade for that matter, Arron Afflalo is the junior varsity version of Kobe Bryant. His mid-range game, featuring an efficient turnaround jumper and fadeaway, rivals Kobe’s. Afflalo also is a proficient long distance shooter and slasher to the basket. By my account, Arron is currently the league’s fifth best shooting guard in the NBA (behind Kobe, Wade, Harden & Ginobili).
