I have never made a thread about stromile swift or my post count, but i decided to make this once because 4 is stro's number so why the hell not. in this post discuss stromile swift. you can talk about how much you like his dunks, you can talk about how dumb you think he is, i dont really care.
I saw him at a club once. Freaked the shyt outta me the way he looked you down with those semicrossed eyes. Guy is an athletic freak though. Is he still labelled as raw?
Congrats though on 4K. Way to stick your guns and show your endless support to the Stro Show.
and i dont consider him raw, if you watch him alot you will notice he has skills to go along with his athleticism. his problem has always been effort level. when he plays hard, he plays well. he has a nice midrange j when hes open, and he can actually make some nice passes and handle the ball a bit. he has some post moves and a very nice left hand hook type shot. he can drive to his left pretty well.
he busted a between the legs crossover move in tonights game then sunk the j in some dudes face, i was like
i think this season he has gained confidence in his game besides just dunking on people. he hasnt even dunked alot this year, he seems to be more concerned with playing well, which is a good thing although i am waiting impatiently for a monster throwdown, hes overdue for one right now.
2nd link is amazing. dude brought that 180 degrees from catch to finish.
I like Stro but not that much. but yeah I got love for the guy. he plays hard. you can be the stupidest mfer alive but if you play your ass off and do crazy things once in awhile there's room for you in my list of favorites.
he's a lot like Andray Blatche I guess. Andray has more skill but less power, but either way they're freak athletes who play hard and are so unbelievably dumb that it never ceases to amaze you.
make sure you check the 1 minute mark where you will see stro owning 2 wolves at the same time.
sorry for the late bump, but i am fullfilling my promise to foye4mvp... stromile had 16/10/4 blocks and 2 monter dunks vs. the t-wolves. he was 3rd on the top 10 plays for alley ooping on al jefff's head and he had a putback that was described by someone at the game as something that "only happens in video games"... so haha there you go.
and yes that picture is from the game when he owned you guys.
