Slipper Still Fits Breaks Down Kevin Pangos To Gonzaga Commitment

Zach Bell of SB Nation’s Slipper Still Fits does a nice job of breaking down the Kevin Pangos to Gonzaga commitment, shedding some insight on Mark Few’s class of 2011 Canadian point guard recruit.

Unlike a Manny Arop or Kelly Olynyk; Kevin Pangos never seemed to fly under the radar. The first time I had heard of Kevin he was already being compared to Steve Nash. The hype has not ceased yet and I don’t expect it to now that Pangos is a Gonzaga Bulldog. Don’t get me wrong, the 6’2’’ point guard has done his fair share to earn such praise. From averaging 15 points a game in the recent FIBA U-17 games and being named the top point guard in the tournament to becoming the youngest Canadian to ever compete in a senior men’s international game; Kevin seems to fit the bill in terms of a big time point guard.

For all intents and purposes, Kevin Pangos appears to fit the phrase “pure point guard” to perfection. I’ve probably read 20 articles regarding Pangos over the past hour to try and cram as much information in my head as possible. When I think about all these articles, there is definitely a few common themes/descriptions regarding Kevin. The first one is: leader, floor general, and extremely high basketball IQ.
