Rudy Gay made an interesting statement regarding the superstar of the Portland Trail Blazers, C.J McCollum.
The forward of the San Antonio Spurs believes McCollum would not have made it to the NBA if he had not played in the NCAA tournament.
Gay also added he feels bad for the college players who won’t get to experience the NCAA tournament like he and McCollum did.
“We all want to play, you know what I’m saying? I know myself, I’m trying to get out there, man. But what I’ve heard is it’s going to be a month, this and that. You see it on Instagram what people think, ‘When is the next season going to start?’ I don’t really care, man. I just want to finish this season, do the best we can, and then try to figure out next year.
I feel bad for the college students because a lot of people were made in the tournaments, so it’s crazy. Where would CJ McCollum be without the tournament? Where would… Steph Curry would probably… Obviously, Steph Curry, do you know what I’m saying?” Gay told Wosny Lambre of The Athletic.
The NBA has suspended the season for at least 30 days due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
