Tomas Satoransky is officially the most sinister-looking player in the NBA. I don’t know who he dethroned to take that title, but he definitely has it now. I had forgotten how evil he looks, it’s been a long time since he got his one and only vid on my channel. The question is not if he is plotting things, it’s how many things he is plotting and how subversive they are going to be. Those beady little eyes, that facial hair, that sly grin… I would not be surprised at all if I woke up tomorrow and he had taken over the UN and declared himself emperor of the world.
For now, though, he’s just an NBA player for the Wizards, getting a bunch more time in the absence of John Wall (the circumstances of his injury are shrouded in conspiracy, BTW). He’s a great player, theoretically; every team wants a 6-foot-7 PG to cause matchup issues. Problem is, he hasn’t shown the ability to do anything NBA related on a consistent basis. More minutes means more opportunity though, and he looked last game and again now tonight. The start of a trend? If so, he’d better pick it up, because Wall isn’t going to be injured forever (unless… things… were to happen to him).
