Defensive adjustments, such as trapping off of screens or bigs moving away from the basket to stifle him, allow for utilization of double-moves to also get off jumpers. Just as his speed puts defenders on their heels, McCullar’s equal ability to turn off the jets in a split second provides him the necessary space to comfortably get his shots away.
Much like a high IQ wide receiver on the football field, McCullar is very adept at recognizing pockets in the defense to settle into to take his shot attempts. He puts the pressure on the defense to react and likewise counter-reacts towards the path of least resistance to score at a high rate.
