The Magic made Andrew Nicholson the 19th pick in the NBA Draft nearly a year ago.
It seems like Nicholson has been playing longer, since his refined post game made him an immediate impact player for the Magic. Moreso than any of the other rookies on the Magic's roster.
He still has a lot to improve on -- specifically on the defensive end. But Nicholson's post game and mid-range shooting make him a player that is clearly apart of the Magic's future rotation -- at the very least coming off the bench. Orlando is hoping Nicholson continues to improve and build upon a strong rookie season.
Nicholson though has a strong following and a lot of support to get there. From the vocal St. Bonaventure fans that made the trek to Cleveland twice for Nicholson's games or flood Twitter with support for Andrew Nicholson or his fans in his native Canada and Mississauga outside Toronto.
There are a lot of people very proud of this rookie.
Nicholson brought his experience and expertise to the Five To Watch Conference, honoring five young sports business leaders in Canada, as a keynote speaker at the conference. Knowing how some of his interviews go, that should have been a very interesting talk. But Nicholson has a lot of experience to impart. He came to basketball late after playing baseball most of his youth life. He took to the sport pretty quickly and obviously made the NBA.no comments
