It's pretty wild what a difference a year can make. Last October Nate Wolters was preparing for his senior season at SDSU. This October, Wolters is preparing to face the Knicks and start his life as an offical NBA player.
"Definitely a little different then South Dakota State. Charter, nice plane, food on the plane, def an upgrade." says Wolters.
Its a no brainer, life off the court will be life changing for nate, but the game itself will be a whole new beast.
"Speed of the game, just the length, especially from a mid major, it's a higher jump for me, so its been a tough transition but I will get use to it" says Wolters.
But if there is anyone who thinks Wolters can make the transition, its his head coach.
"He's coming along, he's learning, I thought summer league was good for him, he's got guys playing infront of him that he can learn from, hes been pregressing very rapidy, this whole learning process." says Bucks head coach Larry Drew.
And being able to learn at a rapid pace has been Wolters best skill.
"I put a lot on the point guards to be an extenstion of me while they are out there, and he has done a really good job, really good job." says Drew.
But while Wolters has been improving, he still needs to show more if he wants to make an impact at the professional level.
"Its not college it's the pros, it's a cut throat business, so every time you are out there you need to show what you have." says Wolters.
And up to this point, Wolters has shown we he has nd will do hes best to make other NBA teams, fear the deer.
