My goal from an early age was always to play in the NBA. I always wanted to be on the same court as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.

But in order to get to that point, I had to focus on every single rep. Staying low, not dipping the basketball, being efficient on my jabs and movements — paying attention to these things helped me grow and made me the player I wanted to be.
