NxGn: Here is The Most Promising Talent- Lebanese Basketball

02 May.2017– It was pretty hard ranking previous U22 talents. All of the 9 picks are blossoming into future stars in our league. But there had to be 1. One talent that has that special something, that flair, allowing it to stand out.

Most of you guessed who it is. Ladies and gent, pick number 1 in this years U22 shortlist is none other than Jad Khalil.

Jad is already one of the best players at his position although he’s only 20 and has a lot to learn. The experience might not be on his side, but he has skills enough to take him a long way. His understanding of the game and the way he controls it are second to none. We often label guys that have high basketball IQs as leaders on the court, well he’s the floor general.

Finishing the season with 9.11 ppg, 3.4 RPG, 6.37 APG and 1.33 SPG only show how much room Jad still has to improve. An idea that may scare many PGs in our league, watch out he’s coming fast.

They once said that hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Well, Jad you have it all so don’t slack off, we’ll be waiting at the end of the road.
