The Newest Raptors Sensation Pops Mensah-Bonsu
Total Pro Sports – We would like to introduce the newest Toronto Raptors sensation Pops Mensah-Bonsu. Pops signed with the squad on March 6th.
In his 4th game as a Raptor Pops Mensah-Bonsu scored 21 points, added 8 rebounds in 22 minutes and did all of this off the bench against the Pacers on Sunday.
“Coming out of college, it was always, `great athlete, aggressive defender but …'” the newest Raptor said yesterday. “I hated that, I hated being looked at as raw because people already had their preconceived notion of me before I even got a chance to prove.
“I’m coming into work and they’re like, `Well, he’s not really a great shooter so if he makes a jump shot, oh, well, he got lucky.’ Now I feel like I can shoot. I think playing in the D-League helped me, helped me get my confidence up and playing for those guys down there helped me show what I can do. I became more of a consistent jump shooter and people saw what I can do out there.” [TheTorontoStar]
So make sure you keep an eye on Pops he’s out to prove alot of people wrong.
