“Smooth Like Butter” – Shaun Livingston Reigns As Top 2004 Point Guard In USA

Brian Stinnette
May 5, 2003

Super-smooth Peoria Central point guard Shaun Livingston has solidified his position as the top Class of 2004 point guard in the United States.

The 6-7 Livingston is a superb ballhandler and passer. He has the keen ability to dictate the action on the court, and to make all those around him better players. Livingston seems to glide around the basketball court making plays and delivering pinpoint passes with ease.

Despite being sidelined by an ankle injury at the Kingwood Classic in Houston, and fighting through leg cramps at the Spiece Run-N-Slam in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Livingston has still shown enough on the court to solidify his position as the top floor general in the country.

Livingston told Chicago Hoops that he is working hard to improve his foot speed. Livingston feels that improved foot speed will help him defend smaller point guards like Sebastian Telfair and Darius Washington, who rank with him as the elite point guards in the 2004 class.

Livingston feels that his passing ability is the strongest part of his game. He is also well aware of the fact that being a 6-7 point guard causes a lot of match-up problems for his opponents.

The list of schools that Livingston is considering includes Illinois, Arizona, Duke, Florida and Louisville. He says that these are his final five schools, and that he does not currently have a leader.
