Kevin CacabelosSenior Analyst IDecember 29, 2008

SeaTown Sports got the priceless opportunity to ask the number two ranked high school PG in the nation, Abdul Gaddy, a few questions. Abdul Gaddy currently attends Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma and will be attending the University of Washington next year to play ball for Lorenzo Romar.

Without further ado, here is the interview.


You decided to be a Husky only a day or two after you de-committed from Arizona. Why did you decide to make the decision so quickly?

I wanted to get the decision over with. It just felt like the right decision because I am going to be closer to my family and I will be near the people that I've known for awhile. Plus, I want to be able to represent my city and my state.

What do you look forward to most about being a Husky next year?

Just bringing the winning tradition back that to what they used to have. I look forward to putting the University of Washington back on the map. I also look forward for the program to help me mature and get me to the next level.


What current NBA or College player do you think you most resemble on the court and why?

The players I think I most resemble are Brandon Roy and Chris Paul. Like me, they play at their own pace and always make the right play. That's what I try to do. They are also winners, and that is what I want to be.

What do you see as the best part of your game?

Passing ability. Whenever my teammates are open, I'll give them the ball. I also try to get my teammates open by attacking and then dishing so they can have an easier shot.

What part of your game do you believe you have to improve the most on?

Defense. This will come as I get stronger, faster, and quicker. I need to become more of a shutdown defender.

What's a typical offseason workout like for you?

Just a lot of shooting, lifting, and getting stronger. I'm trying to bring something new to the season so that I can expand my game.
