  1. Before a game in the locker room, I like to pregame songs by Gucci Mane, Lil Uzi etc.
  2. I’ve been playing since I can remember, but I’ve been playing organized basketball since I was in 3rd grade because my dad got me into it.
  3. Basketball helped me to become more disciplined and responsible in my daily life.
  4. It has matured me and has gotten me to be on top of all my responsibilities.
  5. My role model is Kobe Bryant because I grew up watching him and was named after him.
  6. The biggest challenge and what pushed me to the limit would be all the running.
  7. I wasn’t in good shape as a kid, so I had to push myself to get through conditioning.
  8. A memorable game I had was actually the last game I played where I hit 4 three pointers and had taken a big charge during clutch time and we ended up winning the tourney championship.
  9. I probably would play volleyball if basketball didn’t exist because all my friends play it and it actually looks interesting.
  10. There was this one time in practice where we were running the whole time because this guy couldn’t make the time so I had enough and went off on him, nothing hurting him, but I just told him to step it up and make the time so the rest of us don’t have to suffer.
  11. Before a game, I’d make sure to clear my head and only have my assignment for the game in mind.
