The Boiling Point: Chris Kramer taking his talents to Puerto Rico.

Former Boilermaker Chris Kramer is heading to Puerto Rico to play basketball. He signed a contract to play for the Guaynabo Mets for the last game of their regular season and for however long they are in the playoffs. Could be up to seven weeks that he is there. Kramer will be primarily be playing point guard for the team. Here’s what he told The Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne.

"“I’m taking my talents to Puerto Rico,” Kramer said with a soft laugh, referencing LeBron James’ “Decision” announcement. “I’m kind of nervous, but I’m excited about this opportunity. It’s a great chance for me to grow up as a person, totally being on my own. I don’t know one person in Puerto Rico in the city that I’ll be in. So I’ll get a chance to do a lot of things on my own and really take steps, hopefully, in the right direction in that aspect.”"

Kramer has been looking at options since the Las Vegas Summer League was cancelled by the NBA. The Guaynabo Mets play in the ten team Baloncesto Superior Nacional League.
