The start of the new NBA season has been a good one for Blazers star C.J. McCollum. Fresh off signing a $106 million extension in the offseason, he’s back to making it rain alongside his backcourt mate, Damian Lillard.
He tied his career high in points Sunday as he dropped 37 points and six threes in a win over the Grizzlies. It’s early, but can a guy win the Most Improved Player award consecutive years? Dude’s shooting at a better clip from the field and long range.
The bad news for Portland jersey chasers — C.J.’s already taken by fellow Lehigh alum, Elise Esposito.
Quick hits on Elise:
- Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Neuroscience
- Masters in Healthcare Systems Engineering (brainy AF)
- Works as a dental assistant
