“Being from Seattle, we’re not big on going to different cities to better our game. There’s nothing wrong with it at all, but we love to work hard, low-key. Our older guys paved the way” -@Iso_Zo
Agreed. Guys like Brandon Roy, Jamal Crawford, Isaiah Thomas, Jason Terry, Zach Lavine, Dejounte Murray, Nate Robinson, Aaron Brooks, Rodney Stuckey, Payton Silva, and more shared similar traits.
-The game of Allonzo Trier: one-on-one, deadly. Polished. Skilled. Composed. Extremely confident. Sneakily explosive. Three years ago, if the NBA allowed its teams to draft players out of high school, chances are you would’ve been a lottery pick. Injuries and false allegations deteriorated your stock on draft boards. Ultimately, the result of this: you were undrafted. The inevitable: you’re amongst the elite in your rookie class. You’re known for your ability to create baskets for others, but mainly for yourself. Within rookies, you rank 7th in scoring, 3rd in free throws made, 4th in three-point percentages, and 8th in total assist. You’ve also played less minutes than those who rank higher or average more. You can do so much more with the basketball, but respectively, you’ve simplified your game. What you’ve done this year has rewarded you with the largest contract for an undrafted rookie in NBA history. You know the example you’ve set. Your story gives many athletes in similar positions belief; it’s possible. You deserve it, brother. Congratulations. I’m proud of you.
