At 6-2, 200 pounds, Lofton is a too-short shooting
guard who is battling to carve a spot in the NBA, showing the kind of

So he's tough. He's a survivor. He's a dead-eye shooter who, as the article says, has had games where he's hit 17 and 13 three pointers (overseas).

He's a guy worth rooting for.
