Pat Connaughton said he’s often pegged as a shooter, which of course he is, but he also tries to use his athleticism, playmaking ability, and other skills to his advantage. Even if he barely gets any looks, he still prides himself on making winning plays. “Coach Bud saw value in that, and my teammates saw value in that, and I was able to do that at the highest of levels,” Connaughton said.
Connaughton said he’d love to bring the trophy back to Arlington, but there might be one slight 6-foot-11 obstacle in his way. “Who knows if Giannis has even stopped holding the trophy for the last week?” Connaughton said. “He had both trophies and was calling them his babies. I don’t know if anyone’s ever going to see the trophy again, but I’d love to. It would be something that I think would be really cool, to stick it in Fidelity House and let the town and the city come and take it in, to inspire the next generation of kids. It would be awesome to share that moment with the town that shaped me.”
