Aussie legend takam kay Kai
HINDI pa man nakakadribol sa National Basketball League ng Australia si Pinoy cager Kai Sotto, interesado na si former NBA player at Aussie legend Shane Heal na makita ang ipapamalas ng 7-foot-3 big man.
Matapos ianunsiyo ni Sotto ang kanyang pag-anib sa Adelaide 36ers nitong nakaraang buwan, humakot ng excitement at hype ang 18-year-old NBA prospect.
“Well, you can understand why. I think it’s a good marketing tool. I mean what he will actually be able to do will be interesting. At that size and being skinny playing in a man’s league where people will get physical to him,” sambit ni Heal sa “The Basketball Show” kamakailan.
“Interesting what can he deliver on being so young. It’s easier for a guard to be able to deliver as a pro at a young age than a big man who still has to grow himself, who has not yet maturing and physically ready,” paliwanag pa ng former NBA player na naglaro para sa Minnesota Timberwolves at San Antonio Spurs.
“It’s going to be tough, but great marketing tool for (36ers general manager) Jeff Van Groningen. I’m not so sure if it’s going to translate into wins, but it’s all good.”
Pumirma si Sotto sa Adelaide 36ers ng multi-year deal at inaasahang papasiklab simula 2021-2022 season.
Magugunita na hindi nakapaglaro si Sotto kasama ang Ignite sa nakalipas na NBA G League season. (JAToralba)
