Terrence Jones discusses his rookie year (and has a monster block)

The University of Kentucky Alumi Association (aka the NBA) is stock full of former Wildcat ballers – the highest number of former UK players in history I believe. However, it’s not all fun and games. Elite college players are stepping into the pros and facing adversity just like rookies have for years. Among them is Terrence Jones, who has had several stints in the D-League this year.

However, TJ excelled each time he was sent down and it now getting some good ol’ PT for the Houston Rockets. He recently got some clock near his old hometown as his team played the Portland Trailblazers. Check out the video above with Terrence Jones discusses his first year in the pros. Other Cats have hit the D-League and a lot of college players from this season will likely find themselves there next year considering the overall weak level of this year’s draft class. Jones talks about adjusting to the NBA game, preparing himself for when his opportunity comes, and his childhood friend Terrence Ross (who he has played with since 6th grade). The reporter made sure to mention how they almost went to the same school, Washington.

Now watch the video below of Jones sending a guy’s layup attempt back to half court. And let the video play to see James Anderson posterize a guy as well.

    I don’t think TJ got enough credit for his D last year. He was a very good post defender and good weak side as well.

    T Jones was one of the Cat’s most underrated performers both of his years. The dude was a beast and his resume included a Final Four and a Championship. Not too shabby!
