CLee already becoming like Rip

Just like I mentioned quite a few Fanshots ago, Courtney Lee will develop into a Rip Hamilton like player. With his above average defense, quickness, ability to hit shots off of screens, and very similar athletic ability, Courtney is starting to look like the Rip Hamilton that we saw in the 03 playoffs that came back and won after we were up 3-1. Courtney has shown us all that he was the right choice for us in last year's NBA draft (especially myself, who hated the draft pick of Lee instead of Arthur amongst other names of post players in the draft). I have never been so happy to be so wrong about a draft pick and I take back everything I have said in the past.

Also, If his size, athleticism, and other playing style hasn't convinced you yet, check this out: according to ESPN.com .....

 

"Lee was injured in Game 5 of Orlando's first-round series against Philadelphia on an inadvertent elbow by teammate Dwight Howard. Lee will have to wear a protective mask if he returns."

Looks like my comparison is becoming more and more true. I certainly hope the best for CLee11 and I hope he brings that Rip Hamilton game back to our team very soon.

 

THOUGHTS?
