Deshawn Curtis (6’7″, 224lb, Forward, Prospect Park, PA) has been named Most Valuable Player of the 2014 iBall Pro Combine. Curtis was an obvious choice, outpacing all combine players with a #1 ranking in 14 Statistical Categories! Some of his numbers include the following; 18.3 points per game (#1 overall), 27.3 points valoration per game (#1 overall), 8 rebounds per game (#1 overall including 3.7 offensive-#2 overall), 1.7 assists per game, 22 total field goals made (#1 overall), and 24 total rebounds (#1 overall) to name a few.
Curtis began his dominance early, recording 25 points, 11 rebounds, and an iBall Pro Combine Record 37-point valuation while leading Coach Terrell Stokes’ Red Team to victory in his very first game.
Throughout the combine, Curtis displayed an innate ability to draw contact and finish plays above the rim. His 9 of 11 free throws led all players in foul shots attempted and made. A very intelligent player, he showcased an ability to read what the defense was giving him. He repeatedly beat taller defenders by turning, facing, and taking them to the basket off of the dribble. Smaller defenders were dominated in the post. Deshawn also boasted great form and accuracy from beyond the arc as he connected on 2 of the 3 triples (67%) he attempted.
Deshawn’s Lateral Lane Shuttle score of 3.9 seconds (according to stats by MAXOUT) was 8th overall, which is extremely impressive for a player his size.
In addition to tournament play, drills, and athletic testing, all 50 players were also evaluated on criteria related to character, competitive drive, and ability to contribute positively to a winning effort. Curtis led his team to the combine tournament final and received rave reviews from many Coaches, Trainers, and Scouts . “Extraordinary player and extremely coachable,” said professional trainer and creator of The Original Profender, Tony Devine.
Curtis was courted by many player representatives at iBall Pro Combine and later signed with iBall Management, a full service and global sports agency. “A well deserved honor for a relentless competitor,” said Michael Walker, NBPA and FIBA Agent and CEO of iBall Management.
Curtis enters free agency after an outstanding career at Cheyney University. In 2013-14, he finished 16th in the nation in points per game (21.7). He also averaged 8.2 rebounds per game and was twice named both PSAC and ECAC Player of the week. Curtis finished his season and career by connecting on 20 consecutive free throws.
