TBT In The Pros 1.11.19

TBT'ers are putting the world on notice.

Another week, another slew of dominating performances by TBT'ers around the globe. Before we take a look at this week's top performers, we have a simple message for NBA teams: we hope you're paying attention.

David Dudzinski (Armored Athlete) - Telenet Giants Antwerp (Belgium)

How many players can you think of that truly never have an off night? Whether he's playing in TBT for Armored Athlete or overseas, David Dudzinski is one of them. That trend continued on Wednesday when Dudzinski scored 10 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against Hapoel Jerusalem in Basketball Champions League action. He's averaging 11.4 points and 6 rebounds per game on the season.

 

Marvelle Harris (Team Challenge ALS) - Al Moutahed Tripoli (Lebanon)

If you think you've seen a lot of Marvelle Harris recently, well, it's because he is absolutely dominating over in Lebanon. In eight games this season (the team plays once a week), Harris is averaging 25.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. On Saturday, the Team Challenge ALS star racked up 29 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists against Hoops. Just another day at the office.

 

Pierria Henry (West Virginia Wildcats) - Unics Kazan (Russia)

Even though he only appeared in one game for the West Virginia Wildcats in TBT 2018, Pierria Henry showed the world he can ball with the best of them. Playing against Scarlet & Gray on national television, the UNC Charlotte grad scored 17 points and pulled down 8 boards. He put up (eerily) similar numbers against Andorra on Wednesday night in Eurocup action. In 33 minutes of work, Henry had 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. 

 

Dominique Jones (Team DRC) - Jilin Northeast Tigers (China)

It's a travesty that Dominique Jones isn't on an NBA roster. Whether he's playing in TBT (where he's third all-time with 23.6 ppg) or China, Jones puts up insane numbers every single night. The most recent example came on Sunday when the Team DRC star had 38 points and 10 assists in a 110-97 win over the Beijing Ducks. In 28 games this season, Jones has scored less than 20 points just three times. Those numbers speak for themselves.

 

Walt Lemon Jr. (Always A Brave) - Windy City Bulls (G-League)

He didn't play for Always A Brave last summer, but Walt Lemon Jr. will always be apart of the TBT family. In Always A Brave's run to the TBT 2017 Super 16, Lemon averaged 17 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game. After starting this season on a two-way deal with the Celtics, Lemon is currently balling for the Windy City Bulls. He had one of his best games of the season on Saturday, finishing with a stat line of 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists in a 123-114 win over the Stockton Kings.

 

Michael Qualls (Team Arkansas) - Wisconsin Herd (G-League)

What a couple months it's been for Michael Qualls. In TBT 2018, the Team Arkansas guard averaged a team-high 22.5 points and 6 rebounds per game. He was then drafted by the G-League's Wisconsin Herd, where he's putting together an all-star caliber season. Qualls had one of his best games of the year on Wednesday, dropping 18 points and grabbing 16 rebounds in a 106-103 win over the Northern Arizona Suns. 

 

Aaron Rountree III (Gael Nation) - Qatar Sports Club Doha (Qatar)

When you're putting up Rajon Rondo-esque numbers as a forward, it's a pretty good sign that you're dominating the competition. In six games for Qatar Club this season, Rountree is averaging 15.5 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game. The Gael Nation star almost racked up the fabled overseas triple-double on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points, 9 rebounds, and 14 assists in an 85-82 win over Al Arabi.

 

Donald Sloan (Eberlein Drive) - Jiangsu Nangang Dragons Nanjing (China)

Call. His. Agent. Even though Sloan is more than worthy of an NBA deal, the Eberlein Drive point guard is making the most of his time in China. In 21 games this season, Sloan is averaging 25 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5 assists per game. His hot year continued on Sunday when he racked up a stat line of 34 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists against Guangdong.
