Sean Dockery (born January 5, 1983 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American basketball player. He was a point guard/shooting guard for the Duke University Blue Devils. He is currently a player for the Fort Worth Flyers of the NBA Development League.
While attending Julian High School in Chicago, Dockery was a spectacular athlete
who was regarded as one of the nation's top high school point guards in the country. He was well-known for his ball-hawking
defense as well as his ability to score a variety of ways. Dockery shared the floor general duties with freshman Greg Paulus in his senior year at Duke. On Sunday, December 4, 2005 against the Virginia Tech Hokies, Duke was trailing by one point with 1.6 seconds remaining, when Josh McRoberts unleashed a pass from the Hokies baseline to Dockery near midcourt. Dockery took
one dribble and heaved a three-pointer as time expired. The ball spun in, giving the Blue Devils the win, while preserving their undefeated record.
Dockery shot 46.5% in his last season, while averaging 7.1 points, 3.0 rebounds,
2.6 assists, and a team-leading 1.7 steals per game, while starting in 32 of 36 games. His 194 career steals rank him 11th
in Duke history.
He is one of the kids with the best character to come out of Duke. Coach Mike
Krzyzewski once said that Dockery does and sacrifices more for his teammates than anyone else he's ever coached.
Sean Dockery is compared to his former teammate Chris Duhon. Like Duhon, he puts enormous pressure on the ball-handler, that results in low shooting
percentages and steals. A McDonald's All-American coming out of high school in 2002, he was considered a late-first round
pick at one time. Dockery became overshadowed by other Duke players and scouting interest in him fell.
Right before the 2006 NBA Draft, Sean Dockery was invited to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament soon after the
Blue Devils' loss to LSU. He displayed his ball-handling, ability to thread the needle, drive, and hit the open jumper. Dockery posted averages
of 13.7 points, 8.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in the PIT. He was selected to the All-PIT First Team by www.draftexpress.net
and several writers for draftexpress who were watching Sean were very impressed. 
Dockery also impressed scouts in the Orlando Pre-Draft Camp. He posted averages
of 3.7 points, 4.3 assists, and 1.7 steals while playing through a pulled hip flexor. Thanks to these performances, many began
to consider Sean Dockery a potential late second round draft pick. 
Despite scouts' newfound interest in him, Sean Dockery failed to make the draft.
He is not currently signed with any NBA team.
Sept. 2006: He signed a contract in Germany for the Artland Dragons in Quakenbrück
for three months.
Jan. 5 2007: He was acquired by the Fort Worth Flyers of the NBA Development League.
Feb. 21 2007 He signed contract in Germany for the BBL-Champion 2004/05 Brose Baskets Bamberg

Sean Dockery continued to show just how little we all got to see of his overall game during his time at Duke. Dockery’s ball-handling
skills are significantly greater than he’s given credit for and his court vision and passing creativity are on par with
any of the guards in this camp, if not better. Dockery showed off some very clever moves when penetrating toward the basket,
using good body control and touch to finish a number of NBA caliber shots in the lane. Defensively, Dockery is a bit physical
but is extremely effective when he doesn’t gamble for the steal. He’s got quick hands and quick feet which enable
him to disrupt the opposing point guard’s rhythm and concentration.
Dockery’s biggest weakness is his
ability to consistently hit shots off the dribble or with his feet set. His shooting mechanics are solid from the waist up,
but he has a tendency to drift on his jump. There are flashes of his ability to create shots for himself, but he has practiced
it so little over the last 4 years it will take quite some time to master.
Overall, Dockery’s intelligence and
overall ability are worthy of a 2nd round pick for any team looking for help at the point guard position. Even if he goes
undrafted, Dockery has shown enough to warrant a Summer League invite where he can continue to develop the latent skills that
he has as a primary ball handler.
