FORMER NBA player and home grown hero Mitch Creek is one of the most admired basketball players in the country and has portrayed his leadership skills in his new role as captain of the South East Melbourne Phoenix. He has done everything he can to represent the new franchise, playing 33.9 minutes a game - second most in the NBL.
A threat from anywhere on the court, the Boomer averages over 20 a game whilst having the best field-goal percentage out of the top ten highest scorers in the league and being third in field-goals made per game. Standing at only 196cm, he is also top ten in rebounding showcasing just how explosive he is on court as a small forward.
There really is no limit to how this man can impact a game for his team. If he is not splashing it from deep with that beautiful left handed stroke or driving past whoever is in front of him, he is dishing it to open teammates at the three. It is no secret Creek’s slashing game is a big reason for John Roberson being number one in league three pointers made. At only 28, it looks like Creek’s best years are only ahead of him.
