Michael Carter-Williams is picking apart defenses like an NFL quarterback with time in the pocket.
He was never considered a lottery talent because, as a scorer in high school and a scrawny 185-pounder, he just didn't look the part.
Now he's showing the world he can be a pass-first point guard, and a special one at that.
He's leading the country in assists at 9.3 per game, and that's with Brandon Triche getting some ball-handling opportunities.
Carter-Williams seems to make a play with every touch, breaking down the defense and using his length, vision and passing to set up a teammate for an easy basket.
His physical tools may not translate to an NBA scoring guard, but as a point guard, they're exceptional.
Right now, he looks like the second-best point-guard prospect behind Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State.
