Notable Players in Tosiba Vegas Summer league for Golden State Warriors:
Golden State Warriors
Ø Patrick O’bryant: Big and athletic back to the basket center with good hands and nice offensive touch around the rim. A finesse player that doesn’t like to mix it up or dunk the ball. He will need to get stronger and develop a mean streak in order to succeed at the next level.
Ø Steven Smith: A college power forward making the transition to three at the NBA level appears to have the skills to make an NBA roster due to his ability to put the ball in the basket and play tough defense. He is a smart player and does the little things that it takes to be successful at the next level.
Ø Jose Juan Barea: JJ is a very talented and pure point guard with the ability to make his teammates better and get everybody involved in the offense. The ball moves very well when he is in the game and he is a crafty player that uses his quickness and hustle to beat his opponent. The only two things that will hold him back from being able to transition into the NBA are his lack of size and ability to guard bigger Point Guards and his inconsistent outside shot.
Ø CurtisStinson: A tough nosed point guard that really defends the position well. He is good size for a point and strong enough to finish with contact and hold his position in the NBA. He plays within the framework of the offense and doesn’t force shots. His outside shooting is streaky, but he has a scorer’s mentality and can put up points by getting into the lane and finishing with a variety of offensive moves. He is a very confident and determined player that will not back down from a challenge.
Ø Mo Charlo: An extremely active and aggressive player on the defensive end of the floor. His performance against the Clippers Shaun Livingston appears to have earned him an invite to Warriors training camp as they think he has the potential to be a lock down type of defensive presence. He needs to get stronger and more consistent on the offensive end and really work on his outside shooting touch.
Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.
