It is a dream to be his teammate but a nightmare to be an on-court foe. Jason Brickman makes his presence known due to his highlight reel worthy assists and crafty finishes, which considers him as one of the ABL’s true playmakers.
The former standout from Long Island University arrived at the shores of the league in 2015 as he donned the Westports Malaysia Dragons’ colors. The Dragons staff knew he would be a great addition to their roster due to his playmaking abilities. In his first season, he didn’t disappoint—averaging 13.2 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 10 APG, and 2.2 SPG.
With his first season averages, he proved to be an all-around player with incredible court vision and commendable perimeter defense. His first season was made more memorable as he backed the team to a championship run, and became one of ABL’s Finals MVPs due to his consistent and reliable performance during the postseason.
Brickman missed the following season to play for Mono Vampire in Thailand’s domestic league. As the team rejoined the ASEAN Basketball League in 2017, Jason Brickman got the opportunity to make his own ABL comeback.
In his second ABL season, Brickman continued to stack the dishes column while being a steady scorer on the court. Despite being the fourth seed during the 2017–2018 season, Brickman steered the club to a great playoff run to reach his second Finals appearance.
Although a great playoff run wasn’t enough for the club against Alab Pilipinas in the Finals, it is undeniable that Jason Brickman made a historic run for the team during that season.
With a double-double career average of 12.4 PPG and 10 APG along with a league record of most assists in a game (21 assists), he is without question deserving to be considered one of the league’s best floor generals.
