BCM Insider: Meet the players
For die hard Yggdrasil fans, the names of #9 Paris Hawkins and #23 Felipe Chambón have been synonymous with the growth and development that Coach Vincent Wood has put into his young players.
For everyone else, theres BCM Reporter, Amelia Chase with another edition of Meet the Players.
Felipe was the son of a political family that fled Europe during the initial wave of refugees that escaped devastation in the UK during WWIII. Fleeing to America his parents decided to stay there after the war and start their family over.
Twenty years later their decision to stay in Americs has paid for itself multiple times over as their son Felipe has been ranked in the Top 10 under 21 for the past two seasons, and experts are predicting his breakout season to be in Season 17 where he is expected to have a bigger role with increased minutes.
Coach Vincent Wood was quick to rush to the auction when he caught word that Chambón was placed on Auction by his team at the beginning of Season 15.
"Felipe is one of the best atheletes I've encountered in a while and his basketball IQ is off the charts. Literally he could replace as Coach. He has in practices to prepare for any possible ejections."
"We cant forget Paris." Vincent Wood added, speaking about twenty year old Paris Hawkins who was the part of the same day signing "Hawkins comes with me, he plays where I play. Hes worth it, Coach." He recalled Chambón saying in the negotiations.
Paris Hawkins started as a YouTube sensation. Pranking older ballers at Pick-up Basketball courts; guys playing street ball who saw the skinny white boy wearing a bandana and expected to make him cry.
What they got was a miniature Bob Cousy dancing circles around them, and making them look foolish ad he blew by them for an easy layup, sometimes making them look foolish, or sometimes taking an extremely hard foul and getting right back up. That was the way Chambón became a fan of Hawkins game, at their years on AAUU circuit together when a much larger scrimmage opponent clearly in frustration, extended a leg to trip Hawkins down after a deadly crossover, everyone rushed in before things could escalate, but Hawkins simply held up a hand extended by Chambon and said "No easy points, I get it." What he didnt get was the diagnosis of ligaments torn in his knee during that fall in practice until the next day. Hawkins despite having the crazy handles, had to begin slowing down his game just a little.
So taking Chambón on his word, Coach Vincent Wood signed the duo within minutes of eachother and has invested the time and effort the past two seasons to a fresh start in Season 17 where both players are expected to see increased minutes and role growth in a Midguard roster loaded with talent and no real rush to push any starters out of the job.
Though some sources say either star of Yggdrasil's star SGs, Aronne Picollo or Quincy Mark could be moved if Hawkins shows signs of dominance at PG/SF. Some consider him an upgrade long term over both but with Hawkins shot still developing, there is no dire need to blow up the team.
With Chambon blossoming and Hawkins close to it, Coach V.W. has the youth surrounding his core starters to make a serious contending run in this year Pro League 3, and he looks for another Cup Championship for his resume.
