1991 – Happy 21st birthday to Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Knight (@BrandonKnight07) who is in his second NBA season. After playing in all 66 games and being selected to the All-Rookie First Team in the 2011-12 season, he is continuing to improve his skills. Knight’s assists per game have already increased and he is getting to the free throw line more this season.
1985 – Happy 27th birthday to Philadelphia 76ers small forward Dorrell Wright (@DWRIGHTWAY1) who is in his ninth NBA season. He was a part of the 2006 champion Miami Heat. Then, two seasons ago with the Golden State Warriors, Wright led all players with 194 three-pointers made. This past off-season, the Warriors traded him to the Philadelphia, where he is coming off the bench to provide outside shooting.
