Brimah and Derrick White with G League title

Ghana Center Amida Brimah’s offseason started earlier than expected after Austin Spurs surprise failure to make the NBA Gatorade League playoffs.

The 2018 Champions placed 10th in the Western Conference to miss out in this year’s postseason but that has not kept Brimah from working on his game.

The two time All Defensive Team member has reconnected with former University of Connecticut-UCONN-Associate Head Coach Glen Miller to work on Amida’s shooting.

Miller, who is an Assistant Coach at St. Joseph’s University, stated in an interview with Hartford Courant:

“He’s probably getting up 2,500 shots a day… Two sessions a day, four or five hours a day”. The pair has been working out at St. Joseph’s O’Connell Athletic Center.

“It’s been a grind. I’ve just got to stick with the grind,” Brimah said. “It’s a step by step. It’s a process where you have to trust it. I’m still learning the game, getting better” Brimah said in response.

Miller and Brimah were on the last UCONN to win the National Collegiate Basketball title in 2014.
