Brian Roberts Understands Hornets’ Role
This season’s crop of rookie guards appears to be a promising group. But while guys such as Damian Lillard, Austin Rivers, Dion Waiters and Brad Beal get all of the mainstream attention, New Orleans Hornets rookie Brian Roberts has been quietly establishing himself as one of the league’s most efficient backup point guards.
The 27-year-old rookie has thrived in his role, but even with the early success to start his NBA career, the former University of Dayton product is hungrier than ever to keep improving.
“Right now I don’t want to be content,” Roberts said to HOOPSWORLD. “I want to keep improving and keep doing the things that are going to keep me in this league. It’s a man’s league and you have to be ready to come out every day fighting.”
“Right now, I think I’m getting a little more comfortable with where my spots are and what my role is on this team here in New Orleans.”
