And sometimes we talk about everything, everything. Like all of you, one of the things we talk about is what would you do if you hit the lottery right, what are you going to do if you hit the lottery for like six hundred million, get your mom's house in the NBA. it would be guys it would be like math they won the lottery for six thousand seven hundred guess what they say they are going to do the

next

day the club no but yes but true what do some guys say they are going to go into practice the

next

day and tell everyone do whatever kiss my right right I don't understand I have a big problem when NBA guys say they want to know why because I already have the best job in the world they know I'm saying just because I won the lottery for that big check or whatever, why am I coming the next day? and say forget it, you know, I mean I can play hoops.
The only thing that will happen if I hit that hard is what I can do for other people and probably the way I travel. You know what I mean but that's what I'm saying man if y'all really love is just finding a passion for it man and figuring out how they got there because a lot of times too everyone thinks it's just basketball but it's not like good or bad you have to do school work ok i'm from north carolina i used to say it all the time it could have been other kids on the street who were better than me who were nicer to me but guess what i gave myself a chance never mind as nice as you are no one gets a chance to see you good so you have to have different responsibilities and man i wish you the best of luck you have any questions i don't know if.
Everybody's got a question, that's a good question, he said, like when there's ten seconds left in the game on the line and like how do you keep your poise or what not and all the guys that have been playing here to tell you it's funny because all i do is watch basketball like i literally had a long drive here and i was like on my ipad watching videos from last season like everyone what i do is study the game because i love hoop so much it's so much fun for me that i like to watch SportsCenter or even family.
I get it like people have fans, but they see the guys as taking the last shot and obviously everyone goes crazy for the guys. do that if it's Kobe Cady Braun whoever ran tomorrow guess what we're so used to you know I mean we were your age and we were in the gym planning these games when the game was on I guess we got the ball, You know what I mean, since I've been playing you on the Y and all, and I'm on an MBA in the online game, oh yeah, let me get that, let me get that.
You know what I mean and the most important thing is the correct preparation as well as when when I lb when we go yelling all those things like that when I have the ball I didn't prepare it or practice as much as who was like they're talking about maracas I'll shoot at Chuck and I'll shoot you right now I have to realize when all of you at school and all of you in class guess what we are this is what we do this is what we do like my air you kids and shit are like man I can beat you alright alright and then they'll be like damn that's what we do you know what I mean so the way you prepare for a last second shot is preparation that's why the greats always say when I miss him, okay, great, next time I'll be back. okay, yeah, that's a very good question, he said, how do you juggle exercise and taking care of your body?
Look, I think that's one of the biggest advantages that you guys have now that we probably didn't have when we were younger. recovery aspect as for me now as i know i hurt my hamstring i pulled my hamstring during the playoffs b but at 33 i feel better now probably than i did four or five years ago and that's literally because of how i eat how i train like we trained this morning i had breakfast i trained i had to get a shake for me and my trainer rich we were on our way here and we looked at the clock and we knew a certain amount of time had passed and i was eight, we literally stopped at Whole Foods.
I had to buy something you know what I mean because and We all know when you get older your metabolism doesn't work like that so for me the other stuff is also I stretch stretch so my trainer is with the Rockets every time we travel after a game shut up anytime. We had two games in a row, you know what it is, two games today we played in Brooklyn and we played in Miami, back-to-back games, we beat Brooklyn, we flew to Miami, we arrived at three in the morning, tired, I don't know what made me rich like we stretch so no matter what after games last night when we stretch because the most important thing you learn about the NBA is that you can be nice and be down on a Monday night, right?
You can be nice. You can kill a Monday night. You may be 40, but the real test of the league is what you're going to do. Tuesday, right? Look at them guys, they go down 55 and come back and go down like eight boom. I don't know about that, but uh no, but that's the true test of a professional.
