You can't be afraid to fail. It's the only way you succeed - you're not gonna succeed all the time, and I know that.
My father wasn't around when I was a kid, and I used to always say, 'Why me? Why don't I have a father? Why isn't he around? Why did he leave my mother?' But as I got older I looked deeper and thought, 'I don't know what my father was going through, but if he was around all the time, would I be who I am today?'
I don't know how tall I am or how much I weigh. Because I don't want anybody to know my identity. I'm like a superhero. Call me Basketball Man.
I'm confident with my ability.
There are some teams and logos you see, no matter where you are in the world, and you know exactly who they are and what they mean.
Once you get on the playing field it's not about whether you're liked or not liked. All that matters is to play at a high level and do whatever it takes to help your team win. That's what it's about.
But now, being a parent, I go home and see my son and I forget about any mistake I ever made or the reason I'm upset. I get home and my son is smiling or he comes running to me. It has just made me grow as an individual and grow as a man.
Your teammates give you the confidence. They give me the confidence all year, all postseason.
You have to be able to accept failure to get better.
My mom and I have always been there for each other. We had some tough times, but she was always there for me.
