Brett Rhondae (numbat) is an American professional basketball player who most notably played for the Tallahassee Typhoons of the Furry Basketball Association (FBA). Rhondae is currently listed as a restricted free agent.
It always seemed to be strange to see a numbat family in such a place as Canon City, Colorado. But in fact, Brett's family had moved there shortly after moving to the states for a job in Colorado Springs. Overall, he and his wife found it to be a relatively quiet and moderate sized community for starting their life there, however they absolutely loved the opportunities there for their sporting hobbies of whitewater rafting and rock climbing. A rather energetic family, always enjoying the great outdoors, and they were a pair who loved living life to the fullest.
Eventually they settled down and had little Brett, an energetic young numbat eager to take on the world in his own little way. Through his childhood he marveled at the stories his parents had about their rafting and camping trips, how they had to brave the difficulties and hardships of such rough and hard living and often . But being too young to really do such things with them, he spend much of his time in school or at the local gym, playing various games with his fellow classmates. Basketball was, of course, the hot favorite among the kids with all the action of the FBA, the discussions of how the games went, who was everyone's favorite player, and how everyone wished they were able to play like the headlining players did. So he and his peers had quite a time trying to mimic the pros, make shots, and learn to move the way they saw them on the TV screen.
And so, it wasn't a surprise when several of the more athletic of the kids, including Brett started to organize their own little teams, and eventually started to try out and play in their school gym program. Brett, with having such athletic parents, always had a goal to be able to keep up with them, to become stronger and faster with every passing year, even if it was only in sports like basketball in his youth.
But with time, he eventually gotten stronger and faster, soon joining his parents on some of their rock climbs. However he was still falling more in love with basketball as he grew older and especially as he entered high school. Even with some of the difficulties being an unusual species among the highly ursine, canine, and feline students, he eventually gained popularity on the court, finding himself a stronger shooter than many of his peers and fast enough on his feet to get himself open, to open up some space for him to get into his 'danger zone' and let the ball fly to the net.
Towards the end of his High School career, he eventually shared with his parents that the rock climbing and white water rafting wasn't really for him as much as it was for them and the good news that he had qualified for a partial sports scholarship at Rockwood Flats Community College. But luckily for him, they were supportive, and assured him that they would support him wherever he went, and soon was packing up for college life.
At Rockwood Flats, he took up a degree in athletic training, and immediately started in their growing basketball program. Overall, he did well in his studies but was great at applying what he learned to his own physical conditioning. Even as a freshman, he seemed to add and accent the Flat's longer range capability. Overall the team had only recently came into the scene as a potential contender in the division, but even with his contributions, they lacked the full on size and strength of some of the other teams at the time. But he had always stood out with his higher long ranged shooting, and even with their attempts at getting further in the playoffs, he did provide himself with some notice among the scouts as a potential tool to be sharpened into a truly dangerous three point shooter. Eventually he was approached for interest in submission into the FBA 2015 draft selection, to which he immediately answered affirmatively. He knew how many kids from her school days would absolutely go nuts at such a chance, a chance to play alongside FBA legends they grew up seeing on the TV, and to appear on the TV alongside them.
