Kenneth Lofton Jr., cub XXXL for the Grizzlies

“You can call me Junior.” Kenneth Lofton Jr. may proclaim his first name to be “Junior”, when you see it, it’s hard to imagine when he was a kid. Or she is a beautiful child.

Judge for yourself: 2m01 and 127k! The Memphis rookie, the signatory to a “dual contract,” distinguished himself against the Thunder in the Summer League. And not just in its large sizes.

“It’s not just about my looks. I can play. I can do everything.”, trust. With 19 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 23 minutes, we can’t prove him wrong.

In a few sequences, he dominated Chet Holmgren

For a player of this size, he moves very well. He has good hands, he is able to lift the ball and draw it with three points, like making good passes. Above all, he did not hesitate to attack Chet Holmgren and rally around him.

“I want to dominate my immediate opponent and I wanted to attack him,” He explains, for his argument against the draft’s second option, which he knows well. “It was a great experience to have after playing with Team USA.”

The 19-year-old actually played for the Oklahoma City rookie team, in the national colors, and together they won the Under-19 World Cup in 2021. They also met Victor Wimpanyama there…

Even if it was Thunder who won, Kenneth Lofton Jr. made an impression. He even got a tweet from Ja Morant.
