Portland Trail Blazers

Have you ever wondered what kind of odd jobs NBA players had during their youth and before they made it professionally in the NBA? Everyone has probably wondered what odds jobs their favorite player had before making it big.

Being a paper boy-- a classic first job. But, the people of Portland NEED to know the story of his time working for Abercrombie & Fitch. Might as well give us a good laugh, CJ!

It's also funny that McCollum said he was an intern for LeHighSports. We see what you did there, CJ. Well played, sir.
