Nah’shon Hyland Rumors
Bones had no choice but to pick up and move on. He’d done it time after time. He knew how. “With my background and all of the things I’ve been through, life experience, growing up in a tough environment, seeing that on a day to day basis with my own eyes, it made me who I am,” Hyland said. “That gave me extra grit. Just losing people from my childhood, the life tragedy I’ve been in, the house fire, everything all piled up.”
He’d hoped the tournament would introduce him to a broader audience and send his draft stock soaring. Robbed of that opportunity, he still decided to bet on himself and enter the draft. He is scheduled to take part in the NBA draft combine next week. “I know what I’m about to do right now for this draft and these upcoming events and these workouts and the combine,” said Hyland, who champions himself in such a way that it is easy to believe him. “I ain’t even mad about what happened. I’m a very humble kid but I believe in myself so much and my work ethic, I know I’m about to shock the world.”
