STAR UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: PHYSICAL, HYBRID FORWARD

 

Though PJ Tucker’s journey to the league wasn't easy, testing his basketball mettle, he brings that same, “I gotta have it” mentality on a game-to-game basis; permanent chip on his shoulder – former 2nd round pick (2006) who broke through overseas before earning an extended role w/ the Suns a few years back; a true bulldog w/ a reliable corner 3, PJ Tucker is built like an NFL linebacker – super strong, though a tad undersized; full-time-no-holds-barred forward – won’t let himself (or his teammates) get pushed around; glue guy – finally playing an important role on a contender; PJ loves using his strength to bully opponents, though the consistent finishing ability isn’t there; optimal role player for Rockets – Tucker brings toughness, defends multiple positions & knocks down triples
