At the time, Bassey was considered the best player in the state.

Both coaches encouraged Rivers to play Bassey, despite the lack of game experience.

“It’s just a little bit of adversity, just from the injury, not playing summer league,” Bassey said. “It’s a little adversity. All I can do is control what I can control and just go out there and play as hard as I can for my team. And today, Doc gave me a chance and it was worth it. Like I said, my teammates trust me. So that’s all I can do, play as hard as I can every game.”

Tobias Harris, who’s famously taken all the Sixers’ young players under his wing since his own arrival here, gave Bassey a strong vote of confidence.
