This is my first time in China, and it’s been awesome getting to see the scenery and interact with the people here. After a 13-hour flight from the States to Beijing, I met up with Hi Rise at the airport, and we went to the hotel to meet up with the rest of the players doing this promotional trip. It was nice to see Slick, Hi Rise, Handles, as well as Scooter, who I hadn’t seen since training camp last October. Friday afternoon we were allowed to just relax and catch up on some rest, because the next day we were going to the Great Wall for a photo shoot and to do some sightseeing.More »
Things have been pretty low key during the summer as far as tours and stuff, but we've been making sure we keep in touch with each other. Since all of us are around each other for so long, we kind of develop a brotherhood, so even when we're at home, we keep in contact as if we were on the road.
For the 4th of July, I spent time with my family, and we cooked out, laughed and just had a great time. It's always fun to have cookouts with loved ones and enjoy the summer. Summertime not only gives us a chance to spend time with our families and friends, but it also gives us all a chance to really develop new ball handling skills and other aspects to our games to make us better Globetrotters. I'm pretty sure all the guys are like me, in the gym every day working on new things and polishing up and perfecting our signature moves.
It's nice to be back from touring for a little bit and spend time at home. Things have been pretty hectic for me, because I just moved from New Jersey to Indianapolis, and I also got a new Boxer puppy named Saber, so he's been keeping me pretty busy. It's really good getting to see all the friends and family that I haven’t seen in months and spend time with them and just laugh and have a good time.
We had a game down in Frisco, Texas to promote the grand opening of the Dr. Pepper Arena down there. It was good to get out on the court again and see all the guys and just do what we all love to do...put smiles on people’s faces.More »
