|Katin Reinhardt surely isn't leaving UNLV because of a lack of playing time last season.|
“Katin told me why he was leaving. He said that he feels his best opportunity to play in the NBA is to play more minutes at the point guard position,” Rice said. “Katin would have had an opportunity to compete for minutes at the point, but I’ve never guaranteed anyone that they will start or play a certain number of minutes."
Now I suppose it's fair for Reinhardt to assume his best shot at making the NBA is to play point guard considering he does, at 6-foot-5, have great size for that position. But you want to know the best way to make the NBA? Be awesome. Which is why I'll never understand why prospects don't just focus on being an awesome college basketball player and letting the NBA stuff come as it comes.
