As 2018 came to a close for the Cleveland Cavaliers, a very exciting NBA career is just beginning for Cavaliers forward Jaron Blossomgame. On December 29, the Cavaliers faced the Atlanta Hawks, Blossomgame’s hometown team. The Cavaliers lost 111-108 and Blossomgame finished with 2 points and 2 rebounds in 23 minutes of play.
But, Blossomgame would not trade this moment for anything else in the world:
“The game against the Hawks was really exciting for me because it is the first time most of my friends and family could see me in person playing in an NBA uniform. They are just as excited as I am so I really looked forward to it.”
But to reach this point, Blossomgame had to grind every step of the way.
