De-jaun and Only...

Intoducing: Collin

When people talk about the best rookies so far the season, Tyreke Evans and Brandon Jennings are probably the names most commonly mentioned, but Dejaun Blair is doing work behind the scenes that undoubtedly is worth some notice. The Spurs haven't really developed a spot in the rotation for him yet, and have been playing him pretty inconsistently thus far, but when he's gotten the nod from Gregg Poppovich, he's yet to disappoint.

The Other night against the Celtics, He put up 18 points (9-11 Field Goals), 2 blocks, and 11 rebounds (5 offensive) in just 22 minutes, and single-handedly kept the Spurs within reach during the Celtic's 4Th quarter lapse. The game before that against the 76'ers, he put up 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks in just 17 minutes. Although his averages of 6.5 points and 5.6 rebounds don't look very intriguing on paper, he gets those numbers in just 15.1 minutes, and shoots 61% from the field. If he could get consistent minutes, he would be putting up near all-star worthy numbers nightly, as his impressive 48-minutes-averages of 20.8 points, 17.9 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks indicate.

I love watching Blair play; his Tenacity, timing, and rare combination of quickness and strength has quickly made him one of my favorite players in the league. I think he is a smaller, quicker version of Dennis Rodman. Blair already has a much more polished offensive game than "the Worm", and his quick second jump (probably the best after Shawn Marion) and nose for the ball have made him the best rebounder I've seen since the '90's. Most people consider Rodman to be the best rebounder of all time, and I think that by the time Blair's career is over, he'll be challenging him for that label. Sure, he's just a rookie, but when I look at Blair, all I see is a future 20-point, 20-rebound per game player.

Watch this short video of Blair. He didn't play a whole bunch of minutes, but still had 16 points, and 19 rebounds. keep your eyes on him the whole time and watch how he works underneath the basket, and gets any rebound that comes his way. (and look at HOW he gets those rebounds) He also is very crafty when it comes to offense, and will take advantage of anybody who doesn't respect his offensive abilities......



I know he is just a rookie, and it might seem insane that I am giving him all these accolades so early, but trust me, if there's one thing I can guarantee, it's that DEJAUN BLAIR won't be going unnoticed very much longer.

Dejuan is a force that cannot be contained.

I'm out....

BET and Hursty think i'm hibachi material, but your technically the "leader" of the site so the final decision is probably up to you....

Great article Collin. Blair reminds me alot of Glen Davis. Spurs were very fortunate to pick him up. I can see why alot of teams passed on him with the whole ACL issue, but they'll certainly regret it.

Moose said...

Yeah I think we'd definitely like to have you. I'm not the leader of the group by any means. DP and Hursty started the site, but we work everything as a unit. We communicate these things via email as well. We'd like to have you.

DB is the man...I watched him penetrate the teeth of the UCONN D last season and absolutely bloodletter hasheem thabeet to the tune of 22 points and 23 boards in one of the most dominant performances in XL center history. GOOD WORK Collin.

Im excited to see Majok Sunday when UConn plays UCF. Heavy anticipation for the 6-11 stud's arrival.

Another player named dajuan whose dominating on the HS level, Dajuan COLEMAN is the TRUTH.
