On September 24th The Bold Opinion Crew had the privilege of interviewing NBA prospect Chris Horton. After the interview we applauded his gumption to approach the tough path of the NBA. We promised to follow his success, as we knew his journey was nowhere near complete.
Yesterday, October 30, 2016 the OVC Tournament MVP was drafted into the development league for the NBA. He was picked 5th in the first round by the Grand Rapids Drive. “It felt great knowing I was drafted because all the waiting and hard work paid off,” said the 6’8 powerhouse from Austin Peay.
The Grand Rapids Drive is a minor league affiliate of the Detroit Pistons based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Horton has traveled to many cities for training and work out purposes, Grand Rapids will be one of his many new destinations. When asked if he was happy with the outcome to play in the D-League rather than going overseas, he humbly replied, “I’m just happy to be playing basketball again, didn’t matter where I went.”
We will continue to follow Chris Horton on the treacherous journey to the NBA. The Bold Opinion Crew wishes Chris and the Grand Rapids Drive the best for their upcoming season.
