ACC Basketball Tournament - Championship
NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 11: Harry Giles #1 of the Duke Blue Devils battles for the ball against Bonzie Colson #35 of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish during the championship game of the 2017 Men’s ACC Basketball Tournament at the Barclays Center on March 11, 2017 in New York City.

It’s interesting that Grayson Allen’s fiery nature is seen as a real problem but for Harry Giles, who is just now emerging as a post-high school player, it’s seen as a great thing.

Giles has been ferociously competitive in summer league play, culminating in a shove of Memphis guard Brandon Goodwin which earned him a technical.

Giles finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds.

His intensity is earning him comparisons with Kevin Garnett, and that’s just fine with Giles, who idolized Garnett as a youngster.
