Michigan basketball has been humming along for a while now, and it’s spilled over into the NBA as well. With the conference finals now set in the association, there’s a former UM player on all four rosters meaning that there’s a 100% chance that a Michigan Wolverine will be crowned an NBA champion next month.

Boston Celtics – Nik Stauskas

The beginning of March was special for Stauskas. While playing in the G League for the Grand Rapids Gold, he scored a career-high and set the franchise scoring record with 57 points on 20-of-29 shooting (11-15 three-pointers) against the Wisconsin Herd on March 1 and then dropped 43 points on 16-of-21 shooting (9-13 three-pointers) the very next night against the Lakeland Magic, becoming the second player in G League history to produce 100+ points in a two-game span. Three days later, he inked a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics. Stauskas has only played mop-up minutes in 10 games since signing with the Celtics, but he’s in the league, signed and has a chance at a ring as of yesterday.
