Rockets’ Gary Clark Talks Impact Season for Houston

Published

on

Houston Rockets undrafted rookie Gary Clark has been a surprise this season, playing so well that he overtook the minutes allotted for veteran forward Carmelo Anthony, who the Rockets eventually parted ways with, and continues to be a player for the team.

Clark has worked hard to gain a spot in the rotation, and it is paying off.

“I used to hear it all the time,” Clark said, according to Maurice Bobb of Bleacher Report. “They didn’t think I could play in the NBA. That was the one thing that I heard more than anything else: ‘This kid, he’s too small, he’s not long enough, he’s not athletic. He can’t shoot it that well, so he can’t play in the NBA.’”

“Gary Clark’s a player,” D’Antoni said. “He’s a player. His defense, his rebounding—smart, right position, shoots the ball. I mean, he’s a player.”

“When it comes down to winning, I do the things that a team needs,” Clark said. “I don’t always score. I will never complain about scoring or shots. But you’ll see me getting steals, rebounds, blocking shots, getting other guys opportunities to score. All I’m about is winning.”

“You can just see it,” Rockets MVP guard James Harden said. “From blocking shots to running the floor to rebounding the ball and grabbing offensive rebounds — just the way he plays — that’s what we need from him.”
