James Ennis promises to show Sixers fans ‘Ennis the Menace’ in 2019-20
James Ennis is a versatile wing player that many teams in the NBA want on their team. However, he committed his immediate future with the Philadelphia 76ers and is looking forward to playing great basketball with Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and the rest of the Sixers.
In an interview with Marc Narducci of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Ennis gave Philly fans another reason to be excited about the 2019-20 campaign, saying that he’s going to bring his alter-ego back to life.
“I know my role coming into this year, so I will be a lot better and more comfortable, and you guys will be able to see ‘Ennis the Menace’ this year,” he said.
Ennis has built a reputation as a respected journeyman that can provide value in limited minutes. A couple of NBA teams wanted to get his services, but he chose to stick with the Sixers in hopes of helping the team win a title.
He will not wow fans with his 6.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, but Ennis is trusted to provide “hard-nosed” defense and energy off the bench for Philly.
The sky is the limit for the motivated Sixers, and Ennis the Menace is ready to go along for the ride.
