One of the Jedi in the above picture is Mace Windu, the pick for Kenneth Faried.

Windu and Faried are outsiders.  They are a bit different but it’s that difference that makes them cool among their peers.

Both have stood against the tyranny of oppression and injustice.  They have failed, they have succeeded but they have always moved forward.

You know, I was so sure that Snoke was Mace Windu.  That one guy on Twitter made such a compelling case.  Like how is Snoke just nobody?


Kenneth takes his hits and he bounces back.  He always has.  It’s what everyone that’s watched him play loves about him.  If this was a decade ago, he’d be an all-star.  It’s just a different time now, his command of the force is diminished.  He woulda whipped Palpatine if Anakin hadn’t intervened.  Never forget that.
