I just met with Coach Brown. Everything we talked about so far is great. We shared stories about one another. I can’t wait to get out there and play for him. He said that he loved my game and that I have a lot of potential to be a special player in this league. He loves a person who plays with a chip on his shoulder—the type of attitude I have, he loves every minute of it. He definitely did his homework as he knew things about me before I could even say something. […] I’m a starter in this league. Coach and I talked about it—he said it himself. He also said I could play the “one.” Coming off of the bench, those were my college days.
