But those who worked -- we got after -- Had a chance to showcase both in the full court and afterwards different skills and we we competed a lot wasn't -- they're shooting and -- -- -- I really like though I didn't after -- people you know like when I got so when do world. Didn't work through it dad is different I don't like this where he's kind of the only big thing. A little bit throughout my workouts I've had some. -- winning big combos there's been mainly street bigs actually we don't wanna you know it is. Gone after in the post cross screens and you know close enough to want to things like that did some of the top tier basement here was a little different. Some pick general stuff and things like that foyer and shook shook his little different. That my skill sets so it was good. Well. You. It's that. You know just. I was gonna remain humble and you know where that is we're done today and you know just try to shook his -- has been. Not only that with my interview Chicago. And throughout. The rest of the process and you know they've it's not about one where does this in play and -- and all of these guys -- process when you times. But you know it's -- good listen. Just came out and try to do. Showcase myself and try to prove myself so knock on draft night mostly. Been paired up with -- that. And not decisions that are Warriors can compare faster. Yeah. He's definitely more policy -- -- the and I think everyone knows that I Annapolis -- advantage over him he's got some. They've done it but you know I think uses someone else's. An advantage for me. So you know we kind of just go back and forth demonstrated great player. And and respect each other question locals an agency that different agents so. You know it's been good traveled around and you know have so -- him. You know -- not really miss me I guess it you know us to kind of match up with those -- School awards thing. You're back you give us. You can feel like you're just scratching the surface. What is player. Certainly. You know right now I'm fuel -- rob Owen massively categorized as wrong they got a little more still -- some people think I do. Note to those that aren't suited don't know McCord I -- my pluses and do some different things -- -- are things I can do. But you know it's the same time I know that coming in -- and then more thoughtful work racked -- and face out. Everything like that is that is very important note to do that and so I just missed -- playing. But annoying and I like to showcase my versatility and players that -- on who comes -- soon bench and cruised to the you know I'm clear good -- mind learning it -- today. You know myself -- Is it that I think -- do it. Six. But certainly you you know I obviously good news did Bogut helped him extremely different fortnightly Bogut. If policy community you know take some of the back of minutes clearly and you'll learn from those guys especially you know there doesn't suit better bigs and we. And you know it's coming every day and be humble and know try to prove myself and ms. Armstrong. There I was too aggressive very good players. You know turn away -- you voted. Still some some solid pieces around so. -- -- come in and doing this -- -- you know accident but Wilson. It's voices who's come on come on so it's myself and do not like me. Those were good -- been well that. -- -- that's been like since I've been easy throws. No not at all group in the small town. They're good people in the community. But us as far as my personal situation -- went -- 60. Just. So my brother my mom. Pretty tough growing up not a lot of money and things like there's -- sometimes you know the other thing for me it's been better. Luckily enough for me -- silent and we take me and very special people. The father Ryan answered that means. Just like his his life is like my second on the kids massively so. They're very special people and have been blessed. This it has been taken in by. With. Is what really. So it's and others they're a great group of people and you know not only that there is a great community and Robinson and people didn't know my situation and older you know time. Beasley that's so. You know and there's things like that villages. So there's this element. That means things. He has you -- two terms in Afghanistan. Both for nine -- so you know I think he really did -- time I feel like you can get on August and I think that he will. -- -- Command more respect form and so it was Nelson. One person -- Yes but you.

I'm blessed be able to play a sport that I love and you know win in the next week. Professionally. Notes it's very humbling experience to -- ago throughout all these teams don't become mine. -- try to show myself as an athlete and then not only that but the interviews I did. -- I really try to show some professionalism shown from a full soon straight -- answers and you know shown maturity so much here to do well rounded and notes this it's a great throwing soon do things that I love. That is -- job right now. You show -- -- -- here and these guys like Jerry West. -- I was little -- -- bloopers thus it is -- across the table from -- but then you know it became more relaxed than just a normal and it is that I. I thought in mind he's really well in Chicago and always do we're trying to sell. Noticed that being well rounded and coming off his sharp and educated. Is certainly important to me. So is not going. Those -- good and doing. Minutes and he's it's a small town to -- connection. A little bit you know you we kind of you those those.
