Chris Baldwin comes out with another great article today. I love they way he gets into researching what he wants to write and the humorous analogies he uses when describing the team and staff.
For those of us that enjoy and crave entertaining fast paced games, I was happy to read about our future coach’s desire for the same…
“Houston falling into stretches where it does not play as fast as it should is a particular pet peeve of future head coach to be Kellen Sampson. The younger Sampson’s brought it up in interviews with me for several years.”
I don’t know if Deeky is "the best " point guard in our league right now, but he certainly is the most fun one to watch. There is sometimes no telling what he will do with the ball, especially since he is so versatile. But, one thing for sure, and that is he is very good at taking whatever scoring opportunity the opponent’s defense will give him.
I love how he baits the offensive guy into going to the rack on a fast break…only to come out of nowhere with the block. He’s a master at doing that…and frankly, it’s a thing of beauty to watch it unfold.
I think Dejon got a bad wrap (maybe deservingly so) for making some bone head plays and decisions on the court the previous two years. However, the growth in his game and maturity is undeniable. He reminds me a lot of our former RB Kenneth Farrow in that way. Came in as a bit of a hot head but by his senior year was an absolute work horse and leader on the team. I think its a shame that some of our fans decided to write Jarreau off early because he’s turned into quite the player/leader for us. Also in a day and age where not everyone stays long enough to get their degree, he chose to stay and graduate. And knowing some of his story, that fact alone should be enough for people to want to root for him!
