Earlier this year
Bless his Cotton Sox
Not really sure what his nickname is. At one point Trev referred to him as "Soxxy", announcer called him "100%", apparently at one point he was refrred to as "Cotton Candy" (Fairy Floss) but he didn't like that, and at others as "Ice Cotton."
Whatever, it was a great game by him last night. Considering the Cats were "lucky" (cough) to win, he was a huge part of that. Game-High 27 points, @43%, and 5 assists. Really good to see.
Still too early to claim he's in the Randle category, but definitely worth the change-up. In all the games since he started, the Cats just look so much better balanced with him out there.
Hire is now able to play his "3&D" role, instead of subbing as an SG. Being able to sub in Hire & co, to provide that high-intensity D, was a big part of the win last night.
