Glasgow Rocks guard Jessie Sapp has admitted he would be thrilled to win the BBL’s assists title, even if it means he gives up his chance to steal the scoring spotlight.
The New Yorker has bagged a league-high 6.9 dimes per game this season for the Kelvin Hall outfit, along averaging with 18 points.
However the rookie, who left Georgetown University last summer, insists he is comfortable with his surprise change of role to become the Rocks’ primary playmaker.
Sapp said: “Everybody looks at the game and says ‘ this person scored X amount of points’. You can contribute in other ways than just scoring and still be the main factor on the team. I think that’s a great thing. It makes you a complete player. Anyone can score. Anyone can settle for being a three-point shooter. But when you can rebound, play defence, get steals and assists, that’s what makes you a good player.”
