Persistance Pays Off for Scotty Hopson

by K. Kozla

Scotty Hopson, a Junior out of Tennessee, may not have been picked up at the NBA Draft, but he did not give up. He continued to practice, he continued to dream and he grew hungrier. That was when fate stepped in.

The NBA lock out happened and there is no clear end in site. In fact, there may be no season this year at all, not in America at least. That does not stop the sport and it does not stop the players from all over the world. The only thing it does stop is anyone who has a contract in the NBA from playing. That left Scotty available when Greece came knocking. He was picked up by Kolossos Rhodes in Greece and we are all wishing him God Speed in his new adventures!
