It has been a while since we’ve had a chance to sing the praises of lovable Pistons rookie Kim English, what with him disappearing from the rotation despite making 47 percent of his 3-point attempts and playing solid perimeter defense. Thankfully, Detroit Bad Boys writer, friend of PistonPowered and unabashed Kim English fan Sean Corp pointed me to this comment on DBB, which certainly qualifies for our ELKE series:
Hey guys, I was at the game yesterday sitting about 15 rows behind the Pistons bench. There was an awesome sequence I wanted to write about. During crunch time towards the end of the fourth quarter, there was a great play where Monroe left his man and came out to help and whoever the Raptors guard was that was being double teamed passed it to whoever Monroe left and Drummond anticipated this and accordingly rotated and had a very very huge steal that led to our win.
What’s great about this was about 1 minute before this happened, Kim English who was sitting on the floor with Charlie V, randomly got up and went to talk to the coaching staff very animatedly. My friends and I were joking about it. Well, RIGHT after Drummond made this play, Kim English SPRUNG from the floor and literally went and high-fived the coaching staff. He was so excited it was cool to see that whatever he said had an impact on the game.
