A lot of late nights in the gym, a lot of early mornings, especially when your friends are going out, you’re going to the gym, those are the sacrifices that you have to make if you want to be an NBA basketball player.
A basketball team is like the five fingers on your hand. If you can get them all together, you have a fist. That’s how I want you to play.
As all of us with any involvement in sports knows, no two umpires or no two referees have the same strike zone or call the same kind of a basketball game.
Basketball is in my blood. It is my obligation to try.
