Quotations

I gave my life to Christ.[2]
First and foremost I have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing me with the talents to play this game, with the family to support me, day in, day out. I’m his humble servant right now and I can’t say enough how important my faith is to who I am and how I play the game.[3]
When it come to basketball, I was always the smallest kid on my team. ... I wasn’t highly touted as a high school prospect. I had nobody really running, knocking on my door saying 'Please, please, please come play for our school.'[4]
There’s more to life than basketball. The most important thing is your family and taking care of each other and loving each other no matter what.[4]
