Delaware 87ers v Austin Toros

Focused on the NBA

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a blog entry, but it was important to me to write this one now.

Currently, I’m in Las Vegas, where I’m training with Joe Abunassar of Impact Basketball. Joe is one of the best trainers in the pro game. He has tons of experience, and he knows what it takes to get a guy into NBA shape. That’s my goal right now.

Adjusting to Austin and the NBADL

Going into this offseason, I was just looking forward to playing basketball after suffering an ACL injury again last year. So instead of sitting around and waiting for a team to call, I took the great opportunity the Spurs gave me to sign and play on their D-League team. Now I’m just trying to take advantage of it.

So far I’m feeling good. It had been a while since my last game in the NBA and I’ve only played in nine games here so far, so I’m shaking off the rust. I’m just trying to plug away at that, get consistent and get in a rhythm so that hopefully I can come back to the league sooner than later.

My body is getting there. I’m not that spring chicken I used to be but I know when my conditioning comes everything else will fall into place. I’ve always been one of those guys that can get in shape pretty fast. Once I feel that happening I think the sky will be the limit again.
