Stanley Johnson Is Humbled and Hungry to Improve Entering His 3rd NBA Season
The funny part, says Stanley Johnson, is that he didn't even get off to a strong start.
"I only had like seven points, and we're down 10 early," he tells Bleacher Report over the phone from Las Vegas.
He's talking about his 86-point performance Friday night in the OVO Bounce tournament, an annual showcase sponsored by Drake. How, he's asked, can a player who's never averaged double figures in points in an NBA season come within sniffing distance of 100, especially in a game where other professional hoopsters—such as Frank Kaminsky, Cory Joseph, Brady Heslip and Brandon Jennings—are sharing the floor?
