Chris Boucher "Grind Now, Shine Later"

NBA Canada has launched a 12 minute short film on June 18th on Chris Boucher. A player's path to the NBA is often years in the making, which makes Montreal-native Chris Boucher's story that much more incredible. From an undiscovered talent at age 19 to the first international player signed to a two-way contract with the reigning NBA Champions, Golden State Warriors, this underdog story reaches peaks as high as Sports Illustrated covers and challenges surmounted by gritty determination. These stories help define our national basketball program, and make NBA dreams for tomorrow's stars within tangible reach.
