Wait, Gasser? You mean the glue guy? The defensive stopper that averages less than 7 points per game?
Yup. It’s not as crazy as it sounds. Or maybe it is. All I know is that it sounds like a good idea in my head. Just hear me out.
He’s a 5th year senior, so it’s not like anything will really rattle him. He has hit a buzzer-beater before, although it was about 10 years ago when he was a freshman. And he is a deadly 3-point shooter. Obviously, I wouldn’t isolate him down by 1 or 2. But if we need a 3 to tie the game, I want Gasser coming off a screen and getting the shot.
His name is Captain America for a reason! And the if he were to hit it over Aaron Harrison…
Next: Frank the Tank?
