For aspiring NBA players currently strutting their stuff in the minor league, getting noticed and subsequently garnering consideration for that oh so coveted call-up often begins by showing a certain amount of worthwhile versatility.
In a league full of superstars, some of the most dominant of scorers are already putting their talents on display. LeBron James. Kevin Durant. Carmelo Anthony. James Harden. Stephen Curry.
With that in mind, finding success in the D-League is about a respective prospect's ability to perform and do all of the little things. The smart ones are often able to carve out a niche for themselves by finding their teammates in transition, crashing the boards, and/or asserting themselves down low as an intimidating presence on the defensive end.
Rio Grande Valley Vipers' guard Toure Murry and Reno Bighorns' center Sim Bhullar arguably understand that better than many of their counterparts, as evidenced by their most recent efforts.
In quite the eventful weekend for the D-League, both Murry and Bhullar logged ever-impressive and respectively eye-popping triple-doubles. Let's take a look.
On Saturday, February 21st, Murry logged 18 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists against the Iowa Energy.
On Sunday, Bhullar followed suit with 26 points, 17 rebounds, and 11 blocks against the Los Angeles D-Fenders.
