Courtesy of Dime Magazine, meet the 18 year-old that's currently ranked as the best point guard in Europe. His name is Devon Van Ooostrum, and he's already a star in Great Britain, as the youngest player ever to play for the national team.â†µ
Some highlights, and three quick thoughts.
1. I'd root for pretty much any player named 'Van Ooostrum.' VAN-OOOOOOOOOOS.â†µ
2. But he's British?! That makes the hype a million times better. We need him in the NBA like, yesterday. Whether it's true or not, let's all just pretend he's got the personality of the kicker from The Replacements. And we should call him Posh Spice (just because).â†µ
3. Most importantly: Posh Spice is 18 years old and was born in 1993. WE'RE SO OLD.
