A Filipino American Talent
Good day to all of you, well this is the continuation of my Top Filipino Prospect, a continuation of this thread http://nbadraft.net/forum/cliff-hodge, i will focus now on this young man, well i haven't seen him play yet, only some youtube clips,
STEPHEN “SCUBA” HOLT
He is currently suited up for the St.Mary Gaels, Standing at 6’4” and 195 pounds, he is now a Junior at the Gaels, He showed improvements from his previous two years statistically, im only saying statistically because I haven’t seen him play yet, he is currently averaging 12pts 5.3 rebs 2.7 ast and 0.8 steals,
Has Anybody seen him play? Could a GM use a second pick for him?
I have seen Stephen Holt play because I used to go to St Marys and live in the Bay Area. He has a long way to go if he wants to get to the NBA. He is a defensive ace. In his first collegiate game he had 9 steals, but he lacks offensive aggressiveness. He has been slowed down by injuries this year and last year and missed a couple games. He needs to work on his ball handling skills and decision making. Next year the team is his to run with Dellavadova(who I can see being a 55th pick type this year and playing a year internationally, being such a weak draft) in his senior year right now. In my opinion, Stephen has an overall game for college, but if(and that is a big if) he ever makes it to the NBA he will primarily be a defensive bench player.
thanks for the info! very much appreciated, by the way, does he have a good motor?, and how is his Jump?, i mean could he be a poor man's version of tony allen?
love them Philippines fans,
They believe Manny has never lost,
The Philippines won Ms. Universe.
that Jessica Sanchez is a American Idol,
and that the best football team is the "Azkals"
having said that, they love Basketball. and do have a couple of fringe prospects.
but the Professional league is not very good. most the teams would lose to small conference ncaa teams.
Yeah, I guess you could say he is a poor man's Tony Allen. He hustles and is defintely athletic, is more of a slasher, but can shoot the three, he just needs a better stroke if he wants to do it consistently.
Here is a list of other players: http://www.usbasket.com/Foreign-Players-in-America.asp?Country=PHI
I think out of that list is Japeth Aguliar who plays for the Warriors D League team. He went to Western Kentucky, but left too early which stunned his development.
Fun Fact: Nate Robinson is half Pinoy, and Javale McGee is becoming a pinoy in papers to played on the national team.
The potential starting lineup for 2014 Asian Games to qualify for olympics if(And very big if because it depends on robinson who is eligible to play for them).
PG: Nate Robinson
SG: Stephen Holt
SF: Gabe Norwood
PF: Japeth Aguliar
C: Javale McGee
This team could definitely win the Asian Qualifying tournament because Asia doesn't have many good teams outside of China. And if you are wondering who Gabe Norwood is he was the sixth man of the George Mason final four run.
Nate Robinson is 1/8th Filipino actually.... not half.
I've seen a couple of pro games in the PBA. I feel the top high school basketball players in America could dominant there. Some of their forwards have the height of a small shooting guard in the nba. And some of their big men would make small forwards in the nba
