Camp has come to an end and now its time ti head back home. I will probably say this 100 more times but we (my coaches and I) are so blessed for this opportunity. Definitely the coolest thing I’ve done in the game of basketball. All of the Chinese coaches and staff members said this was the best camp they’ve had in years and I owe that to my amazing coaches. A huge thanks goes out to Byron Samuels, who was most recently the head coach at FAMU, Brian Clifton, who is currently the head coach at “Word of God” in Raleigh, NC and his strength and performance coach, Larry Bratcher; Kevin Hopkins, who is the head coach at Muhlenberg College and also Tony Miller, who has coaching experience at USC and other schools.
Next, I have to say thank you, a million times to my guy Chris Rivers at adidas for putting me in this situation. One of the best people I’ve met not just in this crazy industry, but in life. Also my guy Evan here in China. He does a wonderful job representing not only adidas, but the game of basketball for China.
So proud of all the kids this week. We only had 3 days and wanted to show them so much but they took it all in and gave us great effort. Can’t wait to see a few of these kids at Global Nations in Houston in August. May even see a few playing for my high school in Oklahoma City next year….lol. The language and culture differences made it tough but my coaches were great. Next year I promise it will be even better!
