To the surprise of absolutely no one, the Suns picked up the team option on forward Lou Amundson ensuring that he’ll be with the team next season. For those of you unfamiliar with Lou – he’s basically a weird looking bundle of energy who rebounds, dunks, and rides his bike to the arena for games (a bicycle, not motorcycle..awesome). He may not be able to shoot from more than 3 feet from the basket and hits just 44% of his free throws – shooting numbers that you’d maybe expect from the awkward uncoordinated kid on every 4th grade basketball team – but what he lacks in shooting process he makes up for with pure awesomelookingness (definitely a word).
It’s a shame that Lou has to keep those long flowing locks in check during games but I suppose it’s for the best. I look forward to enjoying Lou’s quirkiness well into the next year.
