Legion is a very experienced player.

Legion's game is described as: Alex is an outstanding shooter who can also create his own shot off the dribble. He uses his strength to create space against defenders and is great 3 point shooter. He has played for top college coaches including Isiah Thomas this year. Alex is a scoring machine and very good all around player who is ready to compete at the highest level.
