Former Boston College guard Ky Bowman is not only making the adjustment to the NBA, but also doing it while playing mostly point guard. Bowman was a scoring guard during his three years with the Eagles. He knows he’s not only auditioning for a full-time NBA deal from the Warriors but from the other 29 clubs, since he’ll be a free agent next summer. “A lot of people get caught up in trying to be something different. It’s kind of a mental thing, just establish what you have to do,” he said. “I’m getting an opportunity a lot of people don’t get. Nobody has been able to get the opportunity I got to not having to spend one day in the G League.”
“I definitely try to model my game as much as I can to Steve,” Young said when asked to name his personal top five of all-time point guards. “Obviously I loved watching Steph growing up. Growing up in Oklahoma City, I’ve been a big Russ (Westbrook) fan. Dame Lillard. Probably Kyrie (Irving) – as far as guys where I try to model my game (after them). It’s the little things that they have that I try to add to my game.”
