With the NBA Draft a few days away, fans are excited to see Jalen Green, who has ties to the Philippines, fulfill his dream once his name is called by the NBA commissioner.
G League Ignite coach Brian Shaw discussed on Republika Huddle, Green’s similarities to the late Kobe Bryant and Paul George.
“I’ve been around, obviously, Kobe Bryant when he was young, Paul George when he way young and there’s something that those guys have in common. Jalen has that, that mentality, that competitiveness, that will to win regardless of what it is,” said Shaw.
“He did not miss a single day of practice. He didn’t miss any games. I don’t think anybody ever beat him when we would run for conditioning in practice. I don’t think anybody ever beat him in a sprint. And so those kinds of things remind me of, especially Kobe, in terms of competitiveness and that will,” added Shaw.
Meanwhile, fans in the Philippines can watch the NBA Draft on July 30, Friday on NBA TV Philippines and on NBA League Pass.
The NBA Draft Pre-show and First Round will begin at 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. respectively.
