The 28yr old earned a starting position in 15 games for the Warriors this season and “Earned” is an understatement. JTA is GSW’s true SWISS Army Knife (The Big one that you always wanted but couldn’t afford that even had a small flashlight and a baby hammer on it that was thicker than your pops wallet) JTA’s on court B.A.R.S. (Ball Awareness Radar System) has military precision and is only evolving with each game. As a forward he can drop the clutch dime, setup a mean screen, beat contenders on the fast break and make the clutch III when needed. This guy is just a 100% well rounded Baller, period. This type of NBA player is hard to come by for any team and it takes years of hard work and dedication to achieve the level of all around skill Juan Toscano Anderson has achieved on the court.
A native of East Oakland California a culture curating nucleus known for giving the world some of its most talented entertainers, athletes, trends, terminologies and nostalgic vibes.
