“It’s very different from normal rookies.”

Sacramento Kings coach Mike Brown said of rookie Keegan Murray after the team won the Lakers on December 23, “Why don’t you have that swag?” He revealed a story.

After every game, the Kings club selects its own DPOG (Defensive Player Of the Game) and holds an event to hang an expensive gold chain. Previously awarded players such as Domantas Sabonis and Harrison Barnes used to show great action whenever they won this award.

In the game on the 23rd, Murray, a rookie Sacramento selected in the first round of the 2022 draft, blocked LeBron James well and was honored to be selected by DPOG.

He is a team rookie. It is the youngest line. He is the most ‘hip’ age. However, after receiving this award, Murray was dumbfounded and stood in his place, and his colleagues were rather taken aback by his reticence and said, “Take it in a cool way” and “Show me some swag.”

A newcomer has appeared that many basketball fans are reminded of Kawhi Leonard (Clippers) rookie days.

Murray was selected by Sacramento with the 4th pick in the 1st round of the 2022 draft. Although he is in his first year, he is evaluated as reminiscent in terms of personality, such as his taciturn expression and low-pitched voice. His short and bold interviews and concise attacks from forwards remind me of Leonard’s rookie days.

Murray is older than most of his draft class players. From 2020 to 2022 he attended the University of Iowa and then came to the league and is older than the one-and-don players. Compared to his fellow draftees, he is not only more mature in his tone, but is actually older as he was born in 2000.

He is averaging 12.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game in 43 games this season. His record isn’t all that flashy. However, his play style is very solid. He is attempting 5.9 3-pointers per game this season and making 2.4 of them, with a success rate of 41.3%. 먹튀검증

Manager Mike Brown said, “I want you to know that Murray is very different from other rookies. He’s in a different situation. Orlando’s youngster (Paulo Bankero), Houston’s youngster (Jabary Smith Jr.) will keep playing and be the center of the offense, even if he makes a few mistakes in a row. However, Murray is not the center of the offense due to team circumstances and is replaced after two mistakes. He pointed out that he should remember in the vote for the Rookie of the Year that he is setting such a record while playing for a team with a high winning rate.”

Sacramento is running at the top of the West Coast. Depth is solid. Unlike other rookies, Murray has been given limited opportunities. But he is making good use of it efficiently. He’s lacking in volume stats, but in terms of substance, he’s top of the line among draftees.

Like Leonard, he is reticent and expressionless. no swag Among the one-and-don players, after joining the pro late, he is attracting attention for his efficiency rather than his record. In many ways, it is evaluated that he is a rookie who evokes Leonard’s nostalgia. De’Aaron Pax, Domantas Sabonis, and Harrison Barnes are the main players leading Sacramento’s blast, but we must not forget the contributions of first-year player Keegan Murray, who plays the role of housekeeper behind them.
