Hodge Hungry For Another Chance

As reported the other day, Julius Hodge is looking to work his way back into the NBA via playing with the Chicago Bulls Summer League team. The "Jules from Harlem on his way to Stardom" caught up with WMBF of Myrtle Beach yesterday and had these words to say about his pursuit of the NBA:

"I know I can do it, so it's all good right there. My first year overseas, it was real tough to watch NBA basketball, I didn't want to see it. You get to seeing guys, you're like, 'I know I'm better than them if I had the opportunity.'"

Now, Hodge is training with a CCU assistant basketball coach, hoping to make it back. He wishes some things were different about his first NBA run, but he's not asking for sympathy.

"I had a shot. Not a lot of people get drafted first round in the NBA, now I have my opportunity and I have to take full advantage of it. It's not in anyone else's hands but mine, I know I'm ready, I know I'll get back this time. I'm excited about it."

    Go Jules! The only player I liked more was Monroe. Julius played with heart and will always be one of my favorites too.
