Because he lacks the hands of an artist and the mind of an intellect, his capabilities as a conman are limited. Kise can’t compose original schemes; Kise can’t create art and sculpture. All he has to his person is his charisma, his voice, his body. He’ll never be able to devise a con without reference; he’ll never know how to manipulate paint and marble. The only tool of his trade that Kise has full control over is his lies. No one can tell them better; no one can be more convincing. While Kise’s mind is a mess, his actions and expressions and words are perfect. With Silver, Kise will be a bitch; with Himuro, Kise will be a lover; with Aomine—Kise will be a challenge.
