Revisiting Sim Bhullar

bhullar_1.jpgIt wasnt quite the Bhullar I was looking for when I was googling information last week, but it did warrant a revisit.

Some time ago I wrote an article about how I wish I was a lil bit taller, highlighting the Brother Bhullar Sim and Tanveer.

Sim is in the press again. The 74 Brampton native is all set to join Xavier University in the fall. Until then, he had been helping Team Canada in the FIBA under-19 world championships in Latvia. Sim had a crushing performance against the South Koreans, dumping 24 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. Messed around and got a double-double.

In a New York Times article this week, featuring Sim, Heidi Ueberroth, the president of NBA International stated:

Having a player from India in the N.B.A. is a question of when, not if. We have no doubt that the elite players from India will emerge.

I would make a major correction and substitute Punjab for India.

Check out his highlight reel, before clicking below the fold.

Sim has his many supporters in the recruiting world lauding his ability to clog the lane with his thick frame, soft hands while passing, and fearlessness in the paint. The 711 wingspan can black many a shot. The young man has heart too, playing the Nike Peach Jam tournament despite a broken nose. Even when Team Canada, eventually fell to the under-19 team from the USA, Sim scored 15.

There are some naysayers too. They worry about his weight (he has dropped to 330 lbs. from 367 last year, although he hopes to lose another 30), his energy level, and lateral movement. Still Xavier is confident in Sims continued improvement as am I.

Another one of our Sikh brothers to root for!
