Anthony Harris has Earned Your Full & Undivided Attention
Anthony Harris - Harris is a long and extremely athletic guard that excels on the break with his ability to attack the basket and finish above the rim with ease and flare. Anthony is terrific at making plays off the dribble especially in the arc with an improving middle game that he is working off the catch and the bounce.
We like the footwork on his step back jumper and mechanically he shows a consistent stroke and and excellent elevation on his shot. Reps take his jump shooting game to another level and with his work ethic defenders may want to take out causality insurance now. Harris who is already winning the genetic lottery becomes possibly the “next guy up” from the DMV (yes we are saying it) when talking two levels up from now – if he can reach 6’5 or above, and from what we have seen he is well on his way.
Harris plain and simple gets where he needs to on the court with a strong handle and can pass when he draws a second defender but frankly when Harris puts that thing on the floor he is attacking to score first. Showing a complete package Harris is also a threat on the offensive glass. He gets his share of put backs and does a great job of keeping the ball alive in a crowd. Anthony is also is very capable of easily defending both guard positions as well.
Simply stated, understand when looking and evaluating Harris that he is a high level athlete with matching athletic ability. He is an attacking guard with a good handle and play making ability, that will be able to operate as a big lead guard when it’s said and done. He can score in a variety of ways and is a tough cover for opposing shooting and point guards; conversely he can and will shut down many who choose to oppose him.
