Kendall plays within the flow of the game and doesn't force his offense if he isn't making shots. He is limited offensively in scoring, and his scoring comes from attacking the rim on straight-line drives. His lack of a three-point shot makes it easy for opponents to sag off on him, limiting the driving lanes he has to the rim. He is aggressive, crashing the offensive glass and boxing out, allowing him to have extra possession and second-chance opportunities.

This dataset includes all possessions when the defender is guarding on-ball, in man-to-man, and against a player not within their position group who shoots the ball, is fouled, or commits a turnover. The percentile listed above is a players standing compared to their postion group calculated by compliling and weighing various different metrics derrived from the hand-tracked data. This data only measures a portion of a player's impact, but it is clear that the ability to defend out of one's position group is a vital skill to contributing to winning basketball at the professional level.
