Dion Wright Wants One Chance In The NBA To Prove His Talent After Playing Against LeBron James In Drew League: "I Know For A Fact They’ll Never Regret It.”

LeBron James is all set to enter the 20th season of his incredible NBA career. During his time in the league, James has faced off against a lot of amazing opponents. By doing so, he has only improved his game and the ability to dominate his opponents.

Speaking of dominating his opponents, ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season, it feels like LBJ is trying his best to stay in top shape. Considering the fact that he is about to turn 38 years old in a few months, it's obviously necessary for him to take care of his physique as well.

One way that James has been doing it is playing in Pro-Am games. A few weeks ago, LeBron gave his fans a piece of pleasant news when it was revealed that the King would be playing in the Drew League after a long time.

As expected, James dominated and helped his side win the game. While all the cameras were on James, there was another player who caught the eye of the media. Yes, we are talking about none other than Dion Wright. Wright grabbed attention towards him by defending LeBron James and making some huge claims about it as well.

Dion Wright Wants Just One Opportunity To Showcase His Talent In The NBA

As it turns out, what fans saw a few weeks ago was just the tip of the iceberg of Wright's confidence in his abilities. He has recently requested the entire league to give him one chance and has claimed that if any team decides to sign him, they will not regret their decision.

via The Guardian:

I’m not saying I’m the best player in the world. But – you know – I’m far from sorry. I just want one team – one person, one GM – to take a real chance on me. I know for a fact they’ll never regret it.”

If there is one thing that Wright has in abundance is confidence. The 29-year-old believes in his talent and wants a platform to showcase his skills to the world.

Of course, it's not easy to make it to the NBA. But if he continues to play well during Pro-Am games, an NBA team might hand him a 10-day contract. However, there is not a huge probability of that happening, so Wright shouldn't get his hopes up too high and focus on improving his chances to one day play in the NBA.
