Sundiata Gaines' Ups and Downs

New, comments

Sekou Smith of NBA.com works in Atlanta and is a fan of Sundiata Gaines, who he watched at the University of Georgia.  Smith chronicles what some might call the thrill of victory and agony of defeat in Gaines' career: his first guaranteed contract followed days later by a season-ending injury.

"Knowing how hard he worked to make it, there is no doubt in my mind that Gaines will return from this experience an even tougher and more determined than ever to make sure he’s on someone’s roster for a long time," Smith writes.
