Jonny Flynn Weakness - Court Vision


Jonny Flynn really doesn’t have great court vision. He turns the ball over a lot and struggles to get his team mates involved. He only averaged 4.4 assists his rookie season. Unless Flynn learns to see the court well, he will be nothing more than a guy who comes in for scoring off the bench as a back-up point guard. This is the most important aspect of his game that he must learn to improve. Otherwise, he’s a shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body. Flynn is not a very good outside shooter. Until Flynn acquires a consistent outside shot, teams will continue to sag off him and not let him attack the basket.

Defensively, Jonny Flynn is a huge liability against bigger point guards. Although he’s plenty strong and quick, he simply is overpowered by the likes of Deron Williams of the Utah Jazz or Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls. Flynn is also too small to be a factor on the boards. Sadly a lot of those weaknesses on the defensive end are not ones that he can improve, meaning he will need to use his smarts and quickness in order to become a good defender in the NBA.
