Alhaji
Mohammed
TLI-Alba Fehervar (A Division) tabbed experienced 36-year old Ghanian guard Alhaji Mohammed (192-89kg-81, college: Louisville, agency: Three Eye Sports). He started the season at Targu Mures in Romanian Liga Nationala. In 10 games he averaged impressive 16.2ppg, 3.9rpg, 2.9apg and 1.3spg this season. Mohammed also played 6 games in FIBA Europe Cup where he had very remarkable stats: 16.2ppg, 2.5rpg, 1.8apg and 1.3spg. The last season he played also at Targu Mures (also in Liga Nationala). In 31 games he recorded high stats: 19.3ppg, 5.4rpg, 4.1apg and 1.5spg. Mohammed helped them to make it to the final. He can count that season as a very successful as was awarded Eurobasket.com All-Romanian League Guard of the Year, selected to 1st Team and selected to All-Imports Team.
Among other achievements he won Romanian League championship title for two years in a row (2013 and 2014).
Mohammed is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in nine different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with European, Asian and of course North American leagues. Mohammed has played previously professionally also in France (Sluc Nancy), Germany (Uni Baskets), Holland (M.Magixx), Iran (Kashan), Kosovo (Sigal Prishtina), Kuwait (Al Kuwait), Spain (Blancos de Rueda and Lleida Basquet) and D-League (Salt Lake City Stars).
It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at Alba.
Mohammed attended University of Louisville until 2004 and it is his 13th (hopefully lucky) (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into His outlook: Mohammed is often addressed by his team and the public address announcer as "Mr. Mohammed," despite his youth and greenness in the professional basketball milieu.
The moniker is a tip of the hat in respect to what Mohammed brings to each and every minute he logs in a game. hustle.
Though Mohammed is, by all respects, in his rookie season, one must make a mental note that he is at the end of his rookie season, with 45 games under his waistband. Having only spent three years under Rick Pitino at the University of Louisville recommended by his older brother, Detroit Pistons Nazr Mohammed, the young man from Chicago, Illinois has taken the doors set ajar for him and blown them wide open.
His athleticism exudes a combination of confidence, grace and raw power when on display, and he has been given free reign to explode in ball games, often bringing onlookers to their feet, and turning the heads of any who may have had doubts about his experience.
Mohammed's strengths are his athleticism, knowledge of the game and his willingness to listen to coaches and grow into the superstardom he is poised for. His defensive game has evolved into one of the grittiest around the league, when he isn't focused solely on offensive feats.
His opportunities are very much the traits that play into his strengths. He could better himself to practice patience when handling the ball, yet it is this unabashed initiative that often results in his poster-inspiring moves and finishes. He could, with work and focus, evolve into one of the better backcourt defenders in his class once he understands how easily his athleticism flows without being forced.
Any team that overlooks Mohammed is overlooking potential explosiveness and a player that will put people in the stands. Many overlooked the likes of Michael Jordan and LeBron James, instead criticizing them early on for their lack of defensive prowess and focusing on their scoring abilities.
Jordan went on to become an All-Defensive player in his storied career and James is already disproving doubters. Mohammed, in time, will as well.
Sometimes it pays to grow up in a city watching one of the NBA's greatest ever. the benefits are evident in Mohammed's God-given talents and rapidly-evolving abilities
