Default Re: Message to the young ballers.

Yea I didn't start to really work on it as a craft until I was 21 and that was because I got injured and had to focus on other things outside of sheer athleticism. All I cared about up to that point was getting a higher vertical and being athletically imposing. Of course I loved the game, just was more into the physical measurable. Once injured however, it forced me to look at different aspects of the game. Now at 27, I am all about tactics, energy efficiency (efficiency in general), flow of the game, etc. I wish I had been able to gain this passion and knowledge when I was in High School because I would have no doubt been able to play in college. I'm fine with the way things worked out though because it's really hard on the body.
