But here’s the thing — it’s basketball. Those kinds of comments and articles don’t matter as much as I thought. When people ask me why I don’t let criticism bother me, I say, Because it’s basketball. You know what I mean? I get to play the game I love every day. That’Adidas NMD Mujer s the perspective I gained working through Nike Air Max 90 Femme Noir et Rose two ACL surgeries — I had to work to be the best Nike Air Max 90 Homme player I could be and not worry about the other guys in my www.egbertvanwijk.nl class. A lot of guys like to read into criticism and rankings, but if you keep reading all the negative commentary, it just kills you. You get wrapped up in it. It gets in your head. I used to really care about the rankings — it was a way to see how you stacked up, nationally. It was just a goal you set to see if you could get there. But eventually I learned that it’s all just noise that you can’t read too much into, or else you’ll constantly have those criticisms hanging over you.
The night of the draft, CP3 texted me another message that has also stuck with me. He told me, “Work hard, compete, and build on the foundation you’ve already laid.”
“After that,” he added. “Anything is possible.”
That’s when it hit me. My resolve is always Nike Air Max Zero Womens going to have to come from within. Injuries and Nike Air Huarache Femme setbacks, those are up to God. But your goals, your Adidas NMD Femme dreams, your drive to rehab a major injury — all of that is in your control.
You see, I’ve always had a big imagination. As a kid I dreamed of hearing my name called on draft night, sure. But I also fantasized about being the guy who scores and hits the game-winning shot. I’d be the guy who makes back-to-back offensive and defensive plays to seal a game.
I dreamed of being a franchise player.
Sacramento, listen — I’m here to work toward being the player that I imagined. When I got picked 20th, I was so excited that I could come to a place like Sacramento where I could really develop. To me, 20th was like a lottery pick. Because it was a chance.
Now I’m a rookie, no more than that. I’m ready to start my new life here. Sacramento is a franchise Nike Air Huarache Donne committed to developing the young group Nike Air Max TN Femme we have, and I think there’s no better place for me Nike Air Max 90 Femme to be. God knew exactly what he was doing, I’m exactly where Nike Air Huarache DamesI’m supposed to be. I’m ready to show you what I’m about.
My story so far is about setbacks. I’ve been down before. I came back better. I went through it all at a young age, and I think it made my resolve stronger than I could ever imagine it being at age 19. Now I feel like I’m on a mission.
So what’s next for me? I can’t really predict. I guess you’re going to have to wait on that.
I wouldn’t want to spoil a good story.
