The Spurs May Have Found Another Diamond In The Rough
JONATHON SIMMONS’S FREAKISH ATHLETICISM WAS ON FULL DISPLAY IN TUESDAY NIGHT’S SEASON-OPENING WIN.
For Simmons, this game may be the beginning of a new chapter in what has already been a fascinating story. Simmons was raised by a single mother in northeast Houston and attended Smiley High School, notorious for its poor academic performance. He took a circuitous junior college route before landing at the University of Houston, where he led the Cougars in scoring before opting for the NBA draft ahead of his senior season. According to a profile on Simmons last year by NBA.com, Simmons decided to try to go pro because he needed to provide for his three daughters.
