Goals I think I’ve always had a goal of being able to play at the highest level possible. When I was younger, I didn’t really have any goals. I just wanted to play basketball and have fun. But now that I’m older, I want to make sure I do everything I can to reach my full potential. I want to become a great player, a leader, and a role model. I want to help others achieve their dreams and live happy lives.
Contract My first professional contract was with the Detroit Pistons. I signed a two-year deal worth $1 million. I knew I could play at a high level, but I wasn’t sure how much money I would get paid. Now that I’m in the NBA, I know what I’m capable of doing. I’m not going to settle for anything less than my best.
Crazy 2 Years It’s been crazy! I’ve learned so many things about myself and about the game. I’ve grown a lot as a person and as a basketball player. I’ve seen some amazing things, met some incredible people, and experienced some unforgettable moments. I’ve played with some of the greatest players ever, including LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. I’ve traveled around the world and even lived in China for two months. I’ve learned so much about the game and about life. I’ve gained confidence and trust in myself and my teammates. I’ve learned to love the game of basketball. And I’ve learned to appreciate every moment of my career.
