Dime Magazine, #64, May/June 2011, p. 62 (online version)
Former Marquette guard Wesley Matthews is featured in the May/June 2011 edition of Dime Magazine. The article highlights his rise from undrafted rookie to NBA starter. Matthews just completed his first season with the Portland Trail Blazers after signing a five-year contract as a restricted free agent in the 2010 off-season.
"As difficult as the journey is to make the world's greatest basketball league, most NBA players realize their destination a few years in advance. But to navigate that unglamorous trail as an undrafted player, a player no one wanted, that route is shrouded in near darkness. They have to know where they are going and they have to know where they came from. The Portland Trail Blazers' Wesley Matthews came and took what was his. He made his dreams a reality."
