Love these phrases from ESPN: The long lefty is a pure scorer”, ” He has great confidence in his shot and is not afraid to take the big one”, and especially “He’s a very disruptive full court defender, at his best in passing lanes, and capable of being a good on-the-ball defender

Joseph Young

“Son of NBA player Michael Young”

Gotta love son’s of NBA players! #58 Shooting Guard according to ESPN.  Also love the first line about him: “Young is the ultimate shooter.”

Ron Giplaye

Giplaye is a very physical player who uses his strength to rebound and score down low.

We need some bruisers in the BEAST!  Well, he’ll fit in perfectly, because his profile says he is: “An absolute beast physically” #104 Power Forward according to ESPN.  Oh, and apparently he “dunks with both hands”, which I am a huge fan of.  Not that single hand nancy shit.
