According to Blakely, Alex Acker is making a name for himself in Europe these days. On another note a couple of guys who I served with had an opportunity to see a few games in which Acker was playing, they feel that he is definitely the real deal. One of my friends is a homer, the other one is anti-pistons all the way, however, he made a stong statement for Akers playing ability. Hopefully I can get them to send some pics of Acker doing his thing. I will be on TDY status in Europe for about two weeks next week and hope to see a game or two if they are still playing. If seems as though Blakely over at Mlive feels that Acker playing at Small Guard best suits his abilities and skill set. If Mr. Aker is the real deal, then we will have ourself a bonafide backup SG who can shoot, play defense and drive the paint.
