Meet Tha New BOSS...

...way different than Tha old BOSS! (with apologies to Pete Townshend)

Let's talk Swaggy.

He's everything I don't like about basketball players. He's a remorseless chucker, with a BOSS-like shot selection that would normally make me want to rip my eyeballs out in rage. He's an offensive black hole. I haven't seen him make one pass that he didn't absolutely have to make because there was simply no shot, even a horrible one, available to him. And that means the defender basically has him in a suplex, or he'd be shooting it.

Defensively, he's OK at best. He doesn't really crash the boards. He doesn't make the hustle plays.

He's pretty much the anti-Iguodala. And anyone who has ever read any post or comment of mine knows that Dre has been my favorite player for years, because he does all those things. Pretty much, Swaggy has taken most of the role of my least favorite Old Sixer, in a way that is startlingly similar in many respects.

He is rapidly becoming my favorite New Sixer (or at least a reasonable placeholder until, y'know, Bynum).

Wut.

I have no reasonable explanation for this. He's just fun to watch. Even when he's jacking up stupid shots from nowhere. Maybe it's just the Swag. Maybe it's the bitchin' 'fro. Maybe it's because he looks like he really, really loves playing basketball for a living. Maybe it's all of these things, or none of them. I honestly have no idea why.

Hi. My name is Stuart, and I love Swaggy P.
