Player Comparison #6

New, comments

Ever since arriving to the Orlando Magic nearly a month ago, Rafer Alston has been skipping along to the beat of a new drum with no problems. As the fill-in starter at point guard for an injured Jameer Nelson, Alston has helped guide the Magic to a 12-4 record and with his presence, provide the team a realistic chance at the #2 seed in the playoffs.

However, as good as Alston has been so far for Orlando, he can’t quell what’s about to occur.

It’s time to play a game.

One of these players is indeed Rafer Alston. The other player, however, can not be named. It can be said that this individual shares many qualities to Alston.

If you guessed Armstrong as the link to Alston, congratulations, you have won the game.

 

But if you didn't, be lucky that the penalty isn't impending death.

 

Until next time.
