Fantastic off season ready for 2022
- By Anthony Duggan, Day 1, 2022
After a disappointing ending to the 2021 season with the injury to all-star Tezale Craig, we have worked hard in the off season to achieve what we wanted.
Fortunate in the draft to get such a high pick we were incredibly lucky to secure the talents of Brandon “The Block” Weir. Following an impressive couple of seasons at Marquette, Brandon has an impressive statline and looks sure to make an impact on the forthcoming season under the tutelage of veteran all-star Bryant Rogers.
With our second round pick we again looked to secure the young talents of someone who could flourish under the wing of superstar Tezale Craig. With Damien “The Omen” James seeming to slip under the radar for many of our competitors in the draft we feel we have a gem in the making. Three years at Clemson with consistent performances at a high level we are expecting this kid to show why he should have been selected higher.
With our draft day completed successfully our thoughts turned to securing the key pieces for a successful season in the free agency. Ensuring the return of veteran bigman Bryant Rogers to lead our Frontcourt and key playmaker Mohammed “Tupac” Shakur were the lynchpins in the FA. No doubt Tupac will continue to display his playmaking ability this season hoping to gain the assists title he narrowly missed out on last year. With an almost full roster it was important for us to secure the signing of another quality playmaker to work alongside Tupac. Managing to steal Daniel Seaborn from under the noses of the Scorpions was a major coup. Daniel has had championship experience previously with the Scorpions and will bolster our backcourt with his abilities.
With David Colbert signing a new contract during the coaches Free Agency we have a strong cast for our 2022 season. As predicted with the talent under our roof our training camp was a success. The work ethics of our players is second to none.
Our key pieces of the puzzle are still with us and with the addition of exciting talent in the draft we are looking to claim the title for the second time in three seasons.
