A Special Thanks

Before I begin this blog post i want to take the time to thank those who have been around and have supported me throughout my career, both on and off the court. I truly appreciate the love and support more than you know.THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

It’s crazy to believe that I am beginning my 6th season in japan. The learning experience that I’ve gained while playing in japan has given me a greater outlook on the world and how we view it. Basketball is a wonderful tool to travel the world while being able to do what I love to do. More than half of the places I have been I never would have gain that experience if it wasn’t for basketball. I truly appreciate and respect all that this game of basketball, and all that it has done for me.
