HoopsHype Sim Bhullar rumors
How would you describe your roots and decision to attend New Mexico State? Sim Bhullar: “I was born in Toronto. My parents are from India – they came over [to Canada] about 30 years ago. I was originally supposed to go to Xavier [but instead] went to New Mexico State, where I knew the assistant there, Paul Weir. We had a good relationship – he’s from Toronto. He brought me out there and I had fun – I had a good two years there.” NBA.com
How would you describe the time you’ve spent in Sacramento? “It’s a big city, it’s a nice city and I really enjoyed my couple of days I was there. I would definitely like playing in Sacramento – being in that market without a whole lot of distractions.” What would it mean to you to become the first player of Indian descent to play in the NBA? “It would be big – not just for me, but for the whole country and my community back home. To have the first Indian in the NBA and be one in one billion at this level would be crazy.” NBA.com
