NBA Role: combo guard UnderDOG

Garrett Temple, a former LSU Tiger, is the basketball equivalent of a baseball utility guy – the epitome of jack of all trades, master of none; does not excel in any area but fully understands the concept of team basketball, plays like a vet; wing ‘understudy’ – steps in whenever the situation calls, puts up nice numbers; whether it’s 3 minutes or 30 minutes, Temple’s ready to execute strategy (gives the same effort every single time); improved offensive player: now an escape-dribble drive guy – if his man flies by* in the corner, Temple strides down the lane w/ a hard, driving finish; always seems to stick in a rotation, has given himself a chance to succeed by filling cracks in his overall game; valuable defender, shooter & worker in Dave Joerger’s lineup

*Temp loves to fake his corner three – not an “automatic” shooter but is on the more favorable end of mediocre
