NBA Role: perimeter defender/slasher • UnderDOG

Basketball 101: for an NBA team to go from good to great (playoff to championship contender), it needs to rely on heavy, internal improvement – in T. Dot, there’s no one more on the come up than UCLA’s Norman Powell; a ridiculously athletic two guard, you need to know Norm: he’s a rough defender & vicious finisher in the open court; loves storming the basket with aggression but won’t jack up a bad shot if there’s not a clear opening – drives to score but can find the open man; passed on 47 times in the 2015 Draft, Powell is making a lot of GMs look really silly right about now; started a bit at SF during the 2017 postseason, received invaluable experience performing well in important games; the first of Toronto’s young role players to actually earn a role, Powell is a player to watch – TOR’s undisputed X-Factor
