Default Hoop Dreams: Quincy Acy on Nightline - ABC News

Who likes this pic. I'm liking this, seems to be a good fit with the culture we're building/toughness we're lacking. It's always inspiring for the underdog and hard worker to make it. Rap fans may have a potential 2nd round gem in this guy.

BTW if this is posted already somewhere - my bad!

I really hope he succeeds here. I doubt he gets a crap load of time with Bargs/Davis or Amir in front of him though, but he's great insurance in case of injury. Now if Amir is kept he can play a little Centre and give Acy some burn.

If he has Reggie's motor and rebounding skills in addition to an obviously superior athleticism, he will get minutes on this team.

Mark my words.

This guy will become our Ben Wallace off the bench this year.

He actually has very similar measurables to Big Ben. Bigger wingspan though. Guys like this do nothing but work hard and try to improve.

There are so many undersized 4's and 5's in the league now that I don't see why people make such a big deal out of it. Huge hops, huge reach, mean and nasty style on the court...I'm psyched for this guy.

Davis is as good as gone.

I like the pick more now than I did on draft night. And I'll feel even better about it if Q-Miller blows out his leg playing for the Nuggets.

Maxiell has a very similar build...but I don't think he was ever as athletic as this guy.

Acy can fly.

Great story. Throw the ball for a rebound, 9 times out of 10, Quincy outrebounds Bargnani. Good competition for Ed Davis and Amir, it will make the team only better. Just like Ross pushing Derozan for minutes at the SG spot. Minutes will not be given, it will be earned.

Seems a smart guy. Could be quite a nice hustle duo with Jonas, I imagine.
