LA Lakers legend James Worthy, who led the Showtime Lakers in the 1980s, recently appeared on the podcast ‘Scoop B’. Worthy gave his evaluation of Gabe Vincent here.
Vincent entered the 2018 NBA draft. But no team was looking for him. In the end, Vincent advanced to the G League and hoped to advance to the NBA. At that time, the Miami Heat reached out and Vincent stepped onto the NBA stage of his dreams.
Vincent stood out last season. He played as a starter in 34 of the 68 games he played, playing an energizing role by averaging 9.4 points and 2.5 assists.
Vincent proved his worth even in the pressure-filled playoffs. He appeared as a starter in all 22 playoff games and averaged 12.7 points and 3.5 assists. His 3-pointers averaged 5.0 per game and he made 2.2 of them.
After watching Vincent’s performance, the Lakers gave him a three-year contract worth $33 million.
In an interview immediately after transferring to the Lakers, Vincent said, “I am from the University of California’s Santa Barbara campus. I know the area well. I expect more of my family to come to the stadium.”토스카지노 주소
Worthy was also welcoming Vincent’s joining.
Worthy said, “Opposing teams should watch out for Gabe Vincent from Miami. He plays as solid as a rock. The Lakers won’t lose the point guard battle when Vincent is on the court. It’s a great signing.”
Vincent went through a difficult process to enter the NBA. After his debut, he wore a Miami uniform and assisted ace Jimmy Butler, learning the ‘Heat Culture’ firsthand. As a result, he began to see the light.
Now he has LeBron James and Anthony Davis, both of whom have won championships, by his side. It remains to be seen whether Vincent, who became a member of the Gold & Purple Corps, can continue his momentum next season by demonstrating a solid play role as Worthy said.
