IRVINE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- One of the elite three-point sharpshooters in the NBA, Troy Daniels also sharpens his aim off the court in the digital worlds of his favorite games such as “NBA 2K,” “Fortnite,” and “Call of Duty.”

Daniels, a veteran NBA champion shooting guard who has most recently played for the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers, visited The Gamer Hour, (https://www.thegamerhour.com), last night, joining esports hall of fame broadcaster Chris Puckett to share his gaming interests.

Some of the topics covered in Puckett’s engaging interview with Daniels include:

Daniels is an unrestricted free agent this season and is awaiting the call to start his eighth year in the league.

Before joining the Nuggets last season, Daniels spent half the season with the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, appearing in 41 games for the team, and earning the respect of his teammates including LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Daniels eventually had a chance to play against his former teammates in the Western Conference finals, but since the Nuggets had a deep backcourt, he didn’t see much playing time in the series.

Although Daniels missed out on winning a championship, the Lakers awarded him with a championship ring as they have done with all of their players on last year’s roster.

During his career, Daniels has averaged 6.6 points per game on 39.5% shooting from three-point range in 339 career games. His top season came in 2017-18 when he averaged 8.9 points and 20.5 minutes in 79 contests with the Phoenix Suns. He holds the Suns’ record for 27 straight games with a three-pointer off the bench and is tied for the franchise record for most three-pointers in a quarter.

Daniels played college basketball at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), where he set the Atlantic 10 Conference record in 2013 for made three-point field goals in a single game.

Giving back and staying committed to helping local communities is also important to Daniels, who speaks to young people about the importance of education and following their dreams. This includes his participation in the annual Dream Big Basketball Camp and Dream Big Christmas Shopping Spree in his hometown of Roanoke, VA each year. When playing for his hometown Charlotte Hornets, he served as the spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte. When with the Lakers, he partnered with Peace4Kids where students from the organization’s Athletic Leadership class were brought to a game as Daniels’ special guests.

Off the court, Daniels is also passionate about fashion, photography, and of course, gaming. Daniels can be found on his Twitch channel at buzzerific30, on IG: @TroyDaniels30, Twitter: @TroyDaniels, and on his YouTube channel.
