Gibson is a small scorer in the mold of Anthony Roberson et al, a vastly undersized point guard who doesn't play as such. He's also very good at scoring, to the tune of 17.5 ppg as a senior, 18.1 ppg in his first professional season in Turkey, 19.9 ppg there again the following year, and 24.2 ppg for the final few games of the year in the Italian second division. And it's mostly from the three pointer, from where he always shoots on or about 40%. Is that enough to make it in the NBA as a specialist shooter? Likely not, but it was for Anthony Roberson. More importantly, Gibson will have to: he can spot at the point, but despite his stature, he is not able to handle the position full time. He hasn't the handle to combat intense defensive pressure, nor has he the playmaking, passing, ball handling pick-and-roll or court vision talents that the position demands. Even when he's playing the point, he's looking to score.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
