Trail Blazers select Nassir Little with 25th pick

TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) The Portland Trail Blazers selected North Carolina forward Nassir Little with the 25th pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night.

Little prides himself on carving his own path and while he was admittedly anxious after falling out of the lottery, the moniker of Trail Blazer fits for a player who refused to play on the Nike AAU circuit and chose to go to boarding schools away from his family for his final two years of high school.

"I've always done things a little bit differently," Little said. "I didn't play on the Nike circuit. That was big. Boarding schools. I always carved my own path and paved my own way."
