Brandon Davies seeking an NBA roster spot with hustle play
In a word, Former BYU center Brandon Davies is on a mission, but not the one most BYU students take time off from school to serve. He is in the midst of trying to convince an NBA team to put him on a roster.
What will be Davies' key to success? According to the ESPN Clippers True Hoop Blog, whether or not Davies will be successful in the big time will boil down to shooting ability, rebounding and the ever-intangible "energy."
Most NBA hopefuls think their ticket to NBA stardom is the ability to score, but when push comes to shove, and a player is trying to simply find a spot, scoring may not always be the need that NBA rosters need to succeed.
Just as Phoenix Suns hopeful Alex Oriakhi told the Clippers Blog, "If your job is to dive on the floor, be the Michael Jordan at that."
Whether or not Davies can convince an NBA team that he can be the Michael Jordan of outside shooting, rebounding and hustling is yet to be determined.
