Scotty Hopson - The best player in the NBL?
In the Breakers first pre-season game at the Blitz Matt Walsh dubbed Scotty Hopson as the best player in the NBL and "its not even close". A statement that seemed outlandish and premature at the time.
Hopson started off the season well, but unfortunately went down with a knee injury, that sidelined him over a month.
But now that he is healthy and playing extremely well, I think its time to revisit this discussion.
Hopson has led NZ to 3 straight wins, with back-to-back game winners against the Hawks and the Bullets respectively. He is willing the Breakers to a potential playoff berth.
IMO, he is the most talented player in the NBL and I hope to see him back in the league next year.
