Houston Rockets rookie Mason Jones has grinded his way to the NBA after going undrafted out of Arkansas. Jones started last night vs the Spurs, recording 24 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. The 22-year-old still has a long way to go, but definitely proved a lot of critics wrong last night.

(Via Pump Fake Sports):

“A lot of people thought I wasn’t capable of playing in this league. A lot of people thought my athleticism wasn’t going to translate, but I just know how to play the game right. I know how to get my shot off. I also know how to get people involved.”
