Who on Earth is Richaun Holmes?

That’s the question I was asking myself when I saw the YouTube headline “Richaun Holmes Throws One Down in Brooklyn!”. Well, that among others like:-

  • Who does he play for?
  • Who played Brooklyn today?
  • How would I know? It’s only pre=season dammit!

But then I clicked the link and saw this little slice of Brooklyn Beatdown…

Here’s some more fun facts about the man they call, well, Richaun Holmes.

  • 37th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft
  • Holmes is the son of two Doctors of Divinity who run a Chicago-area church
  • Only player in BGSU men’s basketball history to post 1,000 career points, 600 career rebounds and 200 career blocks
  • BGSU’s all-time career blocks leader with 244
  • Holds the BGSU single season blocks record with 88 blocks in 2013-14
  • Averaged 2.56 blocks per game over his three years at BGSU

Richaun also has a pretty fun highlight reel, seen below.

Let’s face it, any hoops highlight package set to the dulcet tones of Fort Minor’s “Remember The Name” is generally a good one.

This kid could be really fun to watch this year.

Now you know a few little facts about Richaun Holmes that you also could’ve found within a two minute Google search.

Have a great day!
