HOUSTON - “With all due respect to Charlie Sheen and the “tiger blood” he allegedly possesses, it’s become increasingly clear that whatever plasma courses through his veins pales in comparison to the sanguine stuff inside Goran Dragic. Of course, that should come as little surprise (for so, so, SO many reasons) given that in the rock-paper-scissors world of the mythological animal kingdom, dragon obviously tops tiger every time. And if you’ve been paying attention to what the player occasionally known as El Dragón has been up to of late, it’s rather apparent that Dragic has enough dragon blood in his veins to be considered Head of House Targaryen.
Awful allusions and analogies aside, Dragic’s play since assuming starting point guard duties for the Houston Rockets has been no joke. The fourth-year guard from Slovenia is averaging 15.8 points, 9.7 assists and 1.8 steals per game during his nine starts this season, all while shooting 51.5 percent from the field and 40.5 percent from behind the 3-point line during that time.”
