I just feel so much more comfortable and confident every game I play.
To win MVP was a dream come true for sure, but there are guys who have done this multiple times.
On the court, I want to try and get to the free-throw line a little more. And as a point guard, you can always get better at your decision-making and limiting your mistakes.
I had talked to a lot of people in Golden State’s front offices before the draft. They said they liked me, but they had a lot of guards, so I didn’t think that I would end up there.
I’m not the guy who’s afraid of failure. I like to take risks, take the big shot and all that.
Some of the stuff I do on the court is what most people think they can do.
You know, I’m trying to chase rings, and that’s all I’m about. So that’s where the conversation stops for me.
I love that basketball gives me the opportunities to do good things for people and to point them towards the Man who died for our sins on the cross.
I’ve been blessed with talents to play this game and been put on a stage to impact a lot of people. I don’t want to take that for granted.
I want people to understand they have to live their own lives the way they want to and not just do what we do.
There’s a reason that I have confidence out there, and it’s about how I prepare for games and for series and seasons and whatnot, so we’ve got to stick with that kind of thought process.
Everything happens for a reason, and everything has a story, and if you take time to realise what your dream is and what you really want in life… whether it’s sports, whether it’s in other fields, you have to realise that there’s always work to do.
I’m blessed to have such a tight-knit family that we can talk about anything. Whether we talk frequently or not, since we’re on separate ends of the country, there are a lot of moving parts, and we always stay tight and find that center ground that keeps us together.
