This weeks Profile is the Lightning quick Auckland Grammar Guard LeRoy Brown from the ACM u17s. Leroy was a starter for the 3rd place team coached by Leyton Haddleton at the 2015 Nationals held at North Harbour this past July.
LeRoy is a combo guard who has a super fast first step and an elusive dribble drive that makes him a threat all over the court, LeRoy also has a deadly stroke from 3 and works hard on become a more consistent scorer.
LeRoy claims Oklahoma City Thunder Guard Russell Westbrook as his favourite player because of his aggressive play and competitiveness and also states the Thunder to be his favourite team to watch.
Competing at the 2014 Secondary Schools nationals was one of the Highlights of his early playing career and he states that having NZ Coach Aik Ho and playing alongside ACM Guard Elijah Andrew made his game better.
We hope to see great things coming from LeRoy in the future and that he continues his Basketball Journey which he hopes leads him overseas playing professionally.
