"I love the game of basketball so it never feels like I'm working when I'm passing that passion on to kids in camps and training. Teaching kids and seeing their progress and confidence elevate is something that motivates me not only as a player, but as a coach as well. It motivates me to get better in every aspect of the game so that I can be my very best and lead by example. You can never stop learning and developing as a player."
