Byron Mullens Hopes to ‘prove people wrong’
Byron Mullens is looking for a chance to prove himself.
After his team lost more than 80 percent of its games over the past two seasons, after being jammed on the end of the bench in Oklahoma City as a youngster on a contender, and after a trying free agency period, the Clippers’ new reserve big man is ready to show why he was once considered among the nation’s best amateur players and a top 25 selection in the 2009 Draft.
“There are still a lot of doubters and a lot of people kind of saying, ‘Why did the Clippers do this?’ but I hope to prove people wrong. I’m not going to let anybody down on the team,” Mullens said. “I have a lot of stuff to do this year and I’m going to have a lot better shot selection this year, playing a better role on a better team.”
