Antron Pippen, the starting guard for the Upstate Heat, has led his team to another WBA Championship. The Final game was played against the Rome Gladators, 107-92. The Heat was seated as the number one ranked team in the WBA league.
In the semi-finls, the Upstate Heat eliminated the number four ranked Atlanta Magic. The Rome Gladiators eliminated the Conyers Court Kings. This led to a heated battle for the 2013 Championship between the Upstate Heat and the Rome Gladiators.
Pippen’s post game statement was as such,”I thank God, my teammates, and Coach Daniel for a great season. We worked hard to make it happen. We had great assistance from the team GM (Horace Alexander), the team owner (Alex Garrick), and Ms Galloway in the front office. Many thanks to all of our fans and all others who contributed to this moment. It feels great!”
The Heat’s fans were ecstatic and quite happy to bring the Championship back to South Carolina. One fan stated, “We are so excited! Love watching the Heat play. My favorite part was when Pippen got the steal and went down and did a monster slam. Boy, that was exciting! The fans went wild”
Pippen and his teammates put up a total of 107 points to claim the title of 2013 Champs. Pippen, the son of former NBA star Scottie Pippen, was signed to the team this year to bring in a more polished offense, better and quicker ball movement and to add some quickness to the defensive end of the court. During the playoffs, Pippen’s personal best was 23 points, 10 assists, 8 rebounds, 4 steals, and a lot of controlled fancy ball handling.
Pippen was crowned as team MVP, while teammate Jeremy Price was honored with the title of WBA’s league MVP.
