◽️ @J.N.E.iii , you were a lock with the @Warriors with the 28th pick. You’re a great defender, against three different positions. Golden State knew of your ability to be a marksman, shooting the rock, ranking 5th in @goBearCatsmbb ‘s history. You were destined to be a Warrior. You said, “Golden State used to come to some of my games in college. I could’ve went back to school, but I knew where I could end up.” You have several Hall of Famers and people to learn from. You’ll do well, brother.
◽️ @_Alvo_ , my brother! Your story is one of the most inspirational that I’ve ever heard. You made the NBA, playing 3-on-3 basketball. Your hometown team, Chicago, scouted and brought you in. You played your soul out. That lead to Toronto signing you. There, you were a part of a historical Raptor’s team. You signed with the Warriors as only a training camp invite. The way you played led to Steve Kerr telling you that you’ve earned a roster spot. You’ve also earned a spot in the rotation, shooting over 53% and over 53% from the 3 point line. You motivate and inspire young men and athletes. I’m proud of you, brother.
◽️ @JBell I wish people knew how humble and unselfish you are. You’re very knowledgeable of the game. You have incredible faith in your teammates. You love that Damian Jones is a starter, stating, “He’s earned it. People don’t know how athletic he really is. Sometimes, I just lob the ball up, and he’ll dunk the ball. He’s a freak. Everyone speaks high of DJ. It’s his time.” The aura that you guys share is an unquestioned characteristic of why you guys are champions. On the court, there’s an obvious brotherhood. Off the court, there’s one as well; publicly, it just isn’t seen. Continue to support each other. Thank you guys for having me show up during the weekend.
