Overview: A prototypical Duke point guard, Duhon works hard and plays smart. Plays like a winner. Won an NCAA Championship at Duke in 2002. Brings great intangibles to the table. Doesn’t have great size, strength, or athleticism, but he maximizes what he does have every time he steps onto the floor. More content playing within a team concept than he is playing for personal recognition; that quality will make him a sought after player in free agency during the summer of 2008, despite some off the court rumblings.

Offense: Gets his offense from spot up and pick and roll situations. Has a decent stroke, but it always seems a bit rushed. Compared to most point guards, his catch and shoot ability is just average. Ability to shoot of the dribble is inconsistent, but he’s capable of getting hot from the midrange. More likely to drive and dish than he is to drive and finish. Loves to get his teammates involved, and he makes very few mistakes when the ball is in his hands. A good distributor who will always have a spot in the League due to his basketball IQ.

Defense: Maintains a deep defensive stance and does a great job of making ball handlers cross over multiple times before initiating the offense. Very good at using his body to cut off penetration, but isn’t overly aggressive in pursuing steals. Physical strength makes him very good at defending other point guards in the post. Always rotates when one of his teammates get beat off the dribble. Gives his all on the defensive end.
