After missing six weeks with a right hand injury, Willie Cauley-Stein returned to the Sacramento King’s lineup recently. And he’s been killing it. Willie’s tallied 10+ rebounds in his last 3 games, and the Kings have gone 8-3 since he came back.
Ailiene Voisin took an up close look at the former Cat today and got some riveting details about his life and playing philosophy. Of note: WCS likes to think of his game as more “Batman”-esque.
“Think about it like this,” Cauley-Stein, 22, said recently. “Superman has all the powers. He is the big dude who is going to beat you up. He is just a jock. Batman is smart. He doesn’t have superpowers, but he’s going to take his time, use his mind, then maybe slip you some poison and kill you within a week. And Spider-Man is just weak to me.”
Cauley-Stein says that he likes to emulate Batman’s intellect and work ethic, but personally, I think it’s Bruce Wayne’s flashy style that Willie likes the most.
