Walter Sharpe likes his progress

From the Freep:

While it's hard to see where Sharpe can get much playing time this season with a stacked lineup, the second-round pick -- picked up in a draft-day trade with the Sonics -- is adjusting nicely to the NBA.

"It's been really good to me," said Sharpe, 22. "I'm getting a lot stronger, a lot faster, and I think I'm going to get a lot better.

"Seeing where I was when I got here, I'm really excited about where I'm going to be in the next couple of years."

I don't know why, but this quote made me smile. Most of time it's coaches or fans who talk about a player's long-term potential, but Sharpe seems to realize he's an unfinished product. I know he's not expected to play in the D-League this year (a decision I agree with given the circumstances), so here's to hoping he gets at least a handful of chances to play some real minutes so we can continue to gauge his progress.
