Funny, Valentine isn’t Magic or Green but he’s more of a Spartan than 300 men!
This.Is.The.Future. Michigan star Denzel Valentine is about to claw away at this game like a Wolverine. Hold on bub! Wrong state! Different maize! But Marvel at this young point who could one day lead his own fab five to hip hoops notoriety.
Right now we might be in the bracketology of madness this March but nothing is as crazy as this middle of last month players game. He’s about to rack them up…opponents, accolades, team caps…scouts honour!
Right now everyone is declaring Ben Simmons as the future of basketball like anyone with the initals B. Simmons is going to rewrite the book of this game. But B isn’t the only young point, God to be with the ball on the tip of his finger.
Just wait until Denzel Valentine’s best in the game name is called by the draft board linings of Silver. Then Adam won’t have to worry about that big, red apple in the garden of basketball eden…but whoevers touching the peach.
Following in the legendary footsteps of the greatest Magic Johnson’s Showtime and the Most Improved, championed Draymond Green, this Michigan Spartan is about to cobbler fashion his sneaking way to the basket, fruit or punch. This Denzel is a man on fire looking for glory to the award. He’s unstoppable like a hurricane when he takes flight. How could you ever hate Valentine when he plays with so much college hall, hallmarked heart?
There’s nothing like young love!
But it isn’t blind. Take a little look closer and you will see this vision doesn’t see through rose tints. His biggest skill set is his real world and time thinking and mental approach to this game. Just like a true leader and floor general practices, behind the aviators superstar players prefer to see life through. Denzel sees through it all. All the X’s and O’s. All the b.s. All the way to the win and the fortunate future of not only his team but his own…no matter what frachise he’ll put first like the front of his jersey, before his own name. Valentine’s passion can not be denied…you see him kissing the Spartan helmet centre court.
The 6,5, 23 year old (when he was born his acting first namesake was making Oscar moves in ‘Philadelphia’ with Tom Hanks) Sports Illustrated Player Of The Year is about to rewrite all you’re about to read about. The kid they call ‘Zel isn’t just garnering visonary Earvin Johnson comparisons. He’s also invoking inspirations of Jason Kidd and even Bob Cousy. Some of the elite few best ball handlers to ever touch the rock…now you just know his future like any team he’s given the driving force wheel of is in safe hands.
Just hold on…he’s coming. Like the ball to the basket. Like blood to your heart.
Beat by beat.
Like February 14th for All-Star lovers, in the big leagues Valentine is about to have his day thanks to the green.
