|Donte DiVincenzo’s dad can dust off the old Milwaukee Bucks jerseys he used wear as a fan while he was growing up.DiVincenzo will be able to hook his father up with some new gear soon Shannon Sharpe Jersey , too.
The Villanova guard was formally introduced Monday in Milwaukee at the Bucks’ downtown training facility. The team drafted him last week in the first round with the 17th overall pick.
The 6-foot-5 DiVincenzo gives the Bucks another 3-point shooter with size and toughness in the backcourt, skills that should fit well with All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo’s game.
The No. 9 Bucks jersey with DiVincenzo’s name on the back will soon become the prized piece in the jersey collection belonging to his father, John. An old Ricky Pierce jersey was a favorite.
”I was seen in a Bucks jersey in Philly in my later years. I had mustard all over me. I don’t know if you’re familiar with how they roll there,” the elder DiVincenzo said with smile at the Bucks’ downtown training facility.
His son gets a clean start in the NBA following a distinguished college career.
DiVincenzo was a key member off the bench for Villanova’s national championship team, scoring 31 points and hitting 5 of 7 from 3-point territory in the title game against Michigan, along with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks. The Big East’s sixth man of the year also impressed at the combine with his 42-inch vertical leap, displaying athleticism that scouts crave.
A willingness to come off the bench and succeed in that role helped set him apart.
”It’s just something that’s pretty unique to have a young man who’s willing to do that and make those sacrifices,” Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer said. ”I think Donte will learn, whatever role it is, however it plays out.”
DiVincenzo said the adjustment to the pros should be easy after showing that he could thrive as a reserve in college.
”Just because I’m not coming in here with an ego. I’m not coming in here as the main guy on the national championship team,” he said. ”I’m just coming in here wanting to work, I just want to fit in. That’s my goal.”
That goal also includes fitting in with Antetokounmpo. DiVincenzo knows he must play hard and with energy with the high-flying forward, and knock down 3s to help open the floor.
”Just being able to knock down shots and him being able to look to his left and right and know I’m defending Harrison Phillips Jersey ,” DiVincenzo said.
Playing defense will be the quickest way for DiVincenzo to earn time in a crowded backcourt rotation. After showing a willingness in college to hustle and dive for loose balls, that shouldn’t be a problem. It’s just the way that he learned to play, said his father, who also coached middle-school basketball.
”I watched the young man grow up,” John DiVincenzo said. ”Diving on the floor is a norm for him.”
The elder DiVincenzo was so fond of Milwaukee that he asked his son to bring home some Bucks gear after traveling to Wisconsin for a pre-draft workout. DiVincenzo brought home a white, long-sleeved Bucks shirt.
His excited and grateful father packed that same shirt with him as the family accompanied DiVincenzo for his first trip to Milwaukee as a member of the Bucks .
”I’m like, `Dad, you’re probably going to get gear,”’ DiVicenzo recounted. ”He’s like, `I don’t care.”’
Note: The team’s new arena is 98 percent completed, according to team and construction officials. The Bucks will start playing in the new arena this fall. ”This is all about the details now for the next few weeks,” team President Peter Feigin said.
The widow of an Uber driver killed in a suspected drunken driving crash said her family has been ”devastated” by a political ad featuring her deceased husband, an Indianapolis Colts player who was also killed and the Guatemalan immigrant charged with their deaths.
Deb Monroe, the widow of driver Jeffrey Monroe Ryan Kelly Jersey , told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun should take his ad off the air.
”Why would you do this? He has not even been in the ground two weeks,” said Monroe. ”You could have had the decency to wait and let us deal with our loss.”
The ad by Braun, who has yet to address to Monroe’s concerns, comes in the midst of a heated GOP Senate primary. And it’s just the latest example of a political figure, among them President Donald Trump, seizing on the Feb. 4 deaths of Monroe and Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson.
The two were struck while standing outside Monroe’s car along Interstate 70 after Jackson, 26, became ill while Monroe, 54, was transporting him for the ride-hailing company, police said.
Trump tweeted about the tragedy, calling it ”disgraceful” that the man charged with the crime, Manuel Orrego-Savala, 37 Zay Jones Jersey , was a twice-deported immigrant in the country illegally. Braun’s GOP primary rivals both released statements in the wake of the fatal crash.
The ad, which is narrated by Braun, displays Orrego-Savala’s mug shot as well as pictures of Monroe and Jackson.
”Politicians in Washington have ignored this issue for far too long,” Braun intones. ”We must build the wall, ban sanctuary cities and put an end to chain migration. There are lives at stake.”
Deb Monroe said calls for a crackdown on immigrants are beside the point.
”Immigration didn’t kill my husband,” said Monroe, 62, of Avon, Indiana. ”The idiot that chose to drink and get behind the wheel of a 5,000 pound vehicle did.”
She added: ”If he had been sober and gone by them on the road, you wouldn’t even know he was in the country.”
Furthermore, she said her husband of 26 years was against building a wall along the southern U.S. border.
”He felt the wall was a waste of money, that it could be used better someplace else,” she said.
Immigration has been a hot button issue in Indiana’s Republican Senate primary Josh Allen Jersey , which features two sitting congressman squaring off against Braun. Rep. Todd Rokita has embraced Trump’s anti-immigration stances and Rep. Luke Messer recently sharpened his own tone.
But the ad by Braun, a businessman and former state lawmaker, takes it to a new level.
Monroe said she phoned Braun’s campaign to request that they take the ad off the air, but they have not returned her call.
Campaign spokesman Josh Kelley declined to address questions about whether Braun would heed her request, or if they plan on returning her call.
”Mike Braun believes that Washington needs to stop illegal immigration, build the wall, and keep criminal illegals like the one that killed Jeffrey Monroe and Edwin Jackson out of Indiana,” Kelley wrote in an emailed statement. He added: ”Mike and his family are praying for the families of the victims.”
Deb Monroe said politicians have been all too happy to ”exploit” her husband’s death.
”Everyone is upset over this,” Monroe said. ”I can’t let them do this to his name. I just can’t.”
