5-star basketball recruit RJ Hampton has made a groundbreaking move in pursuit of an NBA career. He's bypassing college basketball to join the New Zealand Breakers in the Australian National Basketball League. RJ speaks to the groundbreaking decision that will relocate his entire family halfway across the world, and what he hopes it may do for age limits and the NBA. He also talks about his heroes (Steph, LeBron, Kobe and Michael Jordan), how he hopes to develop his game and improve as a player, and what the Breakers could offer that college couldn't. Plus, RJ reveals his college pick had the Breakers not been an option, and makes an obvious prediction about this year's NBA Finals. via Knit
