Default HuggingHarold: My Tryout with My Hometown 76ers

Quote:
Last year I had the fortunate experience of being invited to work out with the 76ers. I had worked out with them earlier in the summer and had impressed enough to be invited back a few weeks before training camp. After the first workout I was flying pretty high. I felt I had done well and was really developing as a player. I was certain that with my improvements I could get a job anywhere in Europe.

Now, I have played some strong people and I have played some quick people, but I have never played anyone as strong and as quick as him. No matter where I went, he was there. If I ran the floor. he was running next to me. If I made a post move, he was doing everything he could to stop me. I felt like I was playing in the NBA Finals. But that is Reggie. Guys like that will always have a place in the league. They out-work everyone, they out-hustle everyone and they out-rebound everyone.

Unfortunately for me, this is the man standing between me and a roster spot for the 76ers. I am guessing since I am writing a blog about waiting to go play basketball, you figured out the outcome that day. I can’t help but thinking that my road to the NBA could have been a little easier had Reggie been caught in traffic that morning.

Good find Bel.

remember how badly we needed Jorge Garbajosa that year that he was out because of the ankle rehab? We were desperate for him.... even though he wasn't a superstar or more than a very good role player.

Well that's the EXACT same way i feel about Reggie.

People are saying that he won't fix the problem and we won't be a saviour. You know what? He'll fucking help, i can tell you that much!

I agree completely. The fact is he's a ball of energy, is talkative on the floor and gets you boards. All things we need. I think you play one of Amir or Evans with Bosh and the other with Bargs those combos gives us an energy big on the floor at all times or for at least 30 minutes per game hopefully.
