When you are not a top 3 or even top 5, as a basketball player you better work your ass off to show the teams you are damn worth it. Look how many great players don't make it from the NCAA to the NBA, not because they are not good enough, just because they didn't get an oppotunity. If you have a chance to show what you got, you better make good use of it.
