On Almeida: Joel Almeida is a deceiving combo guard / small forward that can also play the point very effectively. He is a great team player and also a great scorer. He has the ability to break down defenders and create for himself and others. He has good low post move if there is mismatch. He has range extends past the threepoint line and his strength allows him to finish in traffic with contact, or pull up from mid range. Joel is an aggressive defender, good offensive and defensive rebounder with an ability to lead by example. He is a student of the game and very coachable. He works hard day in and day out, you can call him a Gym rat, always looking to improve. He has great attitude, passion and dedication for the game of basketball.
