University of Connecticut (UConn) Captain Amida Brimah believes playing in the right team is key to developing as a player. The Ghanaian Center made the statement during an exclusive interview with when former teammate Shabazz Napier’s turbulent situation in the NBA propped up.

“When you go to a team that really need you, you are going to get exposure and you are going to be able to play and make mistakes and get better from them. He hasn’t really had the chance to actually play, learn from his mistakes and get better. I think he is going to do great when he gets the right chance” he said.


Leading UConn to the national title in 2014, Napier was drafted 23rd in 2014 and featured for Lebron James’ Miami Heat before getting traded to Orlando Magic and Portland Trailblazers. After averaging 13.7 points and 4.5 rebounds during a four year stay in College, Napier has only averaged 4.4 points and two assists since moving to the pros.

Brimah will suit up for the Huskies upcoming season in what will be his senior year. His production dipped from averaging nine points and nearly four blocks in his second year to six points and nearly three blocks last season due to a finger injury he sustained in December.
