The primary playmakers in the backcourt and on the wings are Pargo, Doron Perkins and Chuck Eidson. Eidson has worked his way up the ladder, going from D-League benches to Euroleague starting spots via a stint as the best player on a Eurocup champion. He struggles to score at the Euroleague level more than he ever did at Lietuvos Rytas, yet his ball handling and playmaking at the wing spots open up Pargo and Perkins for scoring opportunities using their superior physical tools, with both also playing aggressive, hounding defense. All three of them are willing and capable ball handlers and passers, and the three of them combine for 11.5 assists per game, which is almost unheard of at the Euroleague level. Problematically, all three of them also lack for a pure outside shooting touch - Pargo's 32.8% three point shooting is the best of the three, while Perkins and Eidson are both recording marks below 30% in this Euroleague season.

In the Israeli league he is averaging 10.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists, alongside 13.1 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game in the Euroleague. Maccabi fans kind of hate him at times, but then again, Maccabi fans kind of hate everything at times.
