R.J. Hunter Still Working To Return To NBA

Aug 5, 2018 3:29 PM

R.J. Hunter continues to pursue a career in the NBA.

Hunter was a first round pick by the Celtics in 2015 but lasted just one season with the team. Hunter has played in the G League ever since except for a five-game stint with the Rockets in 17-18.

“I think just not sticking [bothered me] and listening to too many voices,” Hunter said. “Then you’re getting pulled either which way and so your focus is not on what you really are there to do. It just takes some time to bounce around, and fall a couple of times and figure it out.

“It’s been extremely tough because I think the biggest thing is putting my ego aside and just getting back to playing basketball. I’ve needed everything that I’ve went through and it’s made me a better person, better player. My focus is better. I can bounce back during games. I’m just trying to appreciate every opportunity.”

This isn't the path Hunter envisioned for himself but he's continuing to grind.

“I have a lot of appreciation for it; of course you don’t stay in the finest hotels or eat the best food, but it gives you a great appreciation for the league,” he said. “When you get up there, you’re so hungry on keeping that spot because you don’t want to go back. I’ve had a chance to go back and develop and get my mind right and appreciate what I’m really doing for a living.”
