Interesting, that's twice now i've heard how great Sonny Weems has been playing this week. Derozan said he thought Sonny was one of the most athletic players he's ever seen. That's a pretty significant quote coming from someones who recently said he hasn't seen anyone in college as athletic as he himself is. Now Colangelo says Weems has been attacking the basket at will and with great success all week. He used one example where he said Weems was 1 1/2 feet above the basket ready to throw it down and Johnson met him there and denied. That's some mad hops from someone Weems size.

Hopefully he can play that role for us when we need penetration and buckets in the paint. On the road that will be especially valuable. Raptor teams have allways been adverse to driving the paint, so he should get lot's of opportunity to play here.

Here's the only decent video i could find of Sonny, it's from his college days.
