I Called Game

Welcome to I Called Game, a multimedia series documenting my final season in the NBA. The series includes a mix of videos, photos and written reflections on my 19th and final year of professional basketball. There are two reasons I'm doing this project. The first is that I wanted to find a way to remember all my "lasts" — my last visits to opposing arenas, my last practices, my last team meals, my last playoff run. The second (and more important) reason is that I wanted to express my gratitude to the people who made this journey possible. To my fans, my coaches, my teammates and my family, thanks for giving me such a special ride. I can't believe it's coming to an end, but I'm at peace with it. I just don't want to forget how good it was.
