This article was last updated by on

Professional basketball players, unlike baseball players, rarely require time to master skills after high school or college.

There are exceptions, but for the most part, outstanding high school and college basketball players can impact the NBA. The elite players, in particular.

In basketball, college basketball players almost always go on to become elite NBA players. And they do it reasonably quickly. There are, however, exceptions to the rule.

After college, professional basketball players may develop late or significantly improve their game. And occasionally, they simply slip through the cracks.

Perhaps we can add JaMychal Green to that list as well. He remained undetected for an extended period. 

JaMychal Green is a well-known American professional basketball player for the National Basketball Association’s(NBA) Denver Nuggets. Green went undrafted after graduating from Alabama in 2012.

Green knew the D-League was only a phone call away from the NBA. And that call came in January 2015, when the Memphis Grizzlies offered him a 10-day contract.
