    Treat every possession as your final one ….. and make the RIGHT decision with the ROCK.. your dad was a person who only shot if it was the right decision. He made all of us as his team mates better ….. I’m sure he instilled in you that facet of the game naturally. Also remember you’re only as good as YOU WANT TO BE … push yourself to the point that GOOD ENOUGH NEVER IS
