You could blame his over-ratedness on his best season so far: his rookie one. That was the season that set such high hopes for the Pacers and their point guard.
Actually, similiar to Hughes, it ended up being the only season, for now, where Jamaal has played as much as 80 games. His % from the arc, the field, and even the free throw line have always been horrendous. In his career, his best FG% ever has been 41%, while his highest three point one was 37%. And to finish it off, his free throw percentage's highest mark was 77%.
The only reason Tinsley has ever been highly regarded is simple: street ball. Although it's great that the NBA brings players from the And 1 street-ball show like Alston and they also have great skill and are as talented as some of the other elite basketball players, I think sometimes, even In the NBA, they tend to focus to much on the sizzle and sazzle rather than putting their perspective on the basics and standards of the game.
