Nazr Mohammed says playing for Bulls is a gift
Some professional athletes call playing in their hometown a distraction. For Kenwood Academy product Nazr Mohammed, it's a blessing.
"You have to know how to say no, but I'm one of those guys who people say has always acted beyond my years," Mohammed said. "People do want to be a part of your life or want favors. But at this stage of my career, this is a gift."
Mohammed, 35, is entering his 15th NBA season. He won a championship with the 2005 Spurs and made it to the Finals last season with the Thunder.
