If there’s one thing former Michigan State star Denzel Valentine took away from his rookie season in the NBA, it’s that professional basketball is a business, first and foremost. “It’s ‘What can you do for me now?’ That’s what it’s grown to,” Valentine said following an appearance at the Moneyball Pro-Am in Dimondale on Tuesday night. “It is what it is. There’s so many good players out there, trades being made, deals being done, so you pretty much have to be consistent. That’s what it takes to be a great player, that’s what it takes to be an NBA player.”
