During Tuesday night’s game between the Hawks and Nets, Dwight Howard went to shake Jeremy Lin’s hand and dabbed on him instead. Nets fans saw it happen and reacted as loudly as they had to anything all season.
I was pretty high on Allen coming into the year, believing him to be the best freshman center prospect in the 2017 recruiting class. At Nike Hoop Summit this past April, Allen played as the perfect low-usage, high-efficiency defensive center 鈥?showcasing terrific hands, great timing when blocking shots, and good foot speed on both ends of the floor. That put him as a potential top-10 talent coming into the year.
The early portion of Allen’s college career hasn’t exactly gone to plan in that regard. In some capacity, his play and average numbers has been a result of bad point guard play. As a big man who excels rolling to the basket in the pick-and-roll and using his touch around the rim, he’s struggling to get the ball in the positions he needs to score. On offense, Allen is a solid screen-setter and a good passer for a big, and he does a good job of converting around the rim.
