After two seasons, and 30 games, playing college basketball, Harry Froling still wasn’t sure if he was good enough to take his game to the next level.
Now, following a Rookie of the Year winning season in the NBL, Froling is confident he has what it takes to step up to the American professional level as he gets set to begin NBA workouts this week.
“I left college with doubts in my mind, like maybe I can’t do this, then I went back to Australia and going against Josh Boone, former NBA player, Shawn Long, who should be in the NBA, [Andrew] Bogut, playing in the NBA right now … I’m having good games against these guys and I’m like, I can do this,” Froling tells ESPN from Miami, where the center has been prepping for his upcoming workouts.
“It just re-sparked me and now I’m just all guns blazing. I’m super excited and giving it my all and whatever happens I’m just giving it my all right now.”china nike nfl jerseys cheap
Froling has multiple teams interested in having him work out for them, and sources tell ESPN that he already has work outs for the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, OKC Thunder, Utah Jazz, New Orleans Pelicans and the San Antonio Spurs planned. His team workouts will begin on May 10, so in the meantime Froling is working with an individual trainer to familiarize himself with the American style of game.
“I’ve got to try and get in the best shape that I can, that’s one of the big things, just getting used to the pace of the game – it’s different over here to what it is in Australia,” Froling says. “I know that from what I’ve experienced in college, and with the NBA stuff, that’s a different level.”cheap nfl nike jerseys from china
Although he doesn’t know what to expect from the workouts, Froling is confident that his team is doing a thorough job making sure he’ll be ready for whatever comes next at him.
“I’m just working out pretty much full on all day,” he says. “And that’s just a lot of the drills that we’re gonna do and that can be expected, of what Ronnie [Taylor, his trainer] knows that teams are gonna do in the workouts. A lot of just trying to get better.”
