Samartine "Fatman" Bogues Generation Next
“Fatman” one of the few lead guards in the youth game that looks to set-up teammates first, then shoot. Bogues decision-making is bordering on flawless nowadays and his assist to turnover ratio is becoming stuff of legends. He is at his best in the open court, either delivering a nifty pass, finishing in the paint, and has no added a very solid mid-range pull-up.
He already had a deadly crossover which is getting even craftier, which leaves would-be defenders chasing him down. His catch and shoot as well as his jump shot off the bounce is improving each time we see him and is 100% better mechanically and percentage wise than last year. As he continues to get stronger, look for his outside shot to become more consistent from distance – see how complete a player “Fatman” has become (below) as he showcased his talents at the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp and Buckeye Prep Showcase.
