If you’ve been following along, you’re no stranger to the impact that RJ Davis, Lance Ware, and Jonathan Kuminga had on the NY Renaissance 17U EYBL team this year. While those led the way, there were still others who had to do their job and play their role in order to seal the deal.
One important glue guy deserving of mention is combo guard Sam Klores. Sam played an important role in his 18 minutes per game @ Peach Jam, where he willingly played into the system, spaced the floor, and executed plays. When he did see daylight, he was a knockdown shooter, and even defended to his best ability on the other end. Playing through illness and fatigue was another revealing attribute of Sam, as he dug deep and mustered up the energy to help his teammates advance out of Pool Play with the best record in the pool.
He’s got the drive and the passion to do whatever it takes to win, and that mirrors the likes of old school NYC basketball. Sam is certainly going to be a gem to whatever school lands him, as he is a work horse, basketball maniac, and a true team player.
