he's a true diamond in the rough. he embodies the spirit and essence of what our team should strive for.
I won't pretend he's big. Because he's not. But he's 5ft9. The media tries to portray him as smaller. If he was one inch taller he'd be in the average range. I'm not worried about his durability for two reasons:
1)He's protected himself better as this season has gone on. He's carving his game before his eyes
2)He's a strong guy for his size and as much as it seems he gets pushed around I think it looks worse than it seems. He may take a few bruises but the fact that he's able to come back for more shows he isn't being maimed by the opposition.
