Newly acquired Sixers guard Alexey Shved has a reputation for being a sporadic, yet fun player. Most games he plays with the Kobe Bryant motto, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” A lot of people wouldn’t like players with this motto, especially ones with a tenth of Kobe’s skillset, but this is a different situations.
The murky season ahead of the Sixers leaves Shved’s style of play as a chance for excitement. At the least, it’s better than watching Jason Richardson trot around the court in his 33-year-old shell of his former self body.
The 6’6″ Russian guard has games where he looks like he has it all figured out, which was the case back in 2012 when Shved dropped 17 points on the Sixers in an early December contest. His style of play — as evident in this video — can be very fun to watch on a bad team, which should be the case with the Sixers this season. Enjoy.
