Snell's Journey with the Chicago Bulls
Tony Snell got picked in the Bulls side from the University of New Mexico. The bulls picked him in the first round as an overall 20th pick. Snell had a great start to his career but could not live up to the expectation. Snell, on his selection, said:
"It was crazy knowing I'm going to the Bulls. I watched Jordan play my whole life."
The fans did not like Snell's pick in the draft. They criticized the coach of the Bulls GarPax for not selecting Dieng. Snell's presence in the Bulls dugout lasted for just three seasons. During his stay, he had a lot of controversies with his fellow teammates. His incident with Joakim Noah tells how he felt about the team and the environment around him.
Despite facing some challenges in his early days with the Chicago Bulls, Snell never lost his determination and drive to succeed in the NBA. This perseverance ultimately led him to the Milwaukee Bucks, where he quickly established himself as a valuable asset to the team. Snell was allowed to start almost every game and quickly proved himself to be a strong contributor on the court. Over the next four seasons, Snell built a reputation as a reliable player with consistent performance. While his third season in Milwaukee was not up to his usual standard, Snell demonstrated his versatility and adaptability when he was loaned to the Detroit Pistons.
Rest of the NBA career
After he departed from Milwaukee, Snell could not find a place to stay. He changed his teams five times in 5 years. It felt like he had a lot of potentials, but he disappointed his squad on every significant occasion. Snell failed to impress his fans and his team at times when he was needed. His small gestures always created a gap between him and the others.
Andrew Hughes, in an article, used the following words for Tony Snell's move:
"The Celtics will have a trustworthy wing who can make the professional squad after first seeing action in the G-League with Alex Barlow. It can appear to be a little action at this time, but it might be a part of a bigger scheme."
Tony Snell was one of the players that were hyped before coming to the NBA, but even in the ideal condition, he couldn't deliver up to the mark. He has again got a shot to put his mark on the board by proving everyone wrong in the NBA G League. NBA coaches would keep a close eye on him during his stay at the NBA G League because if they could see Tony Snell at his best, there is no shooting guard better than him.
