Last night, we were calling the former Ballislife All-American from Rainier Beach a future star in this league after watching him put up 11 points, 10 boards, 5 assists and 2 steals in just 24 minutes against the Rockets in Game 6.
Jamal Crawford tweeted “BABYBOY!!! SEE U” during the performance and I can guarantee you are going to be seeing a little more of him against the Warriors and a lot more in seasons to come.
