  • I remember my view from the bench — or really
  • On the first day of training camp i said that we’d be back in the playoffs this year
  • Working all the time and taking care of us
  • She put me on a basketball Team
  • And my first thought after seeing him was
  • He tied a career high with 25 rebounds in a 100 94 win over the detroit pistons
  • He was serious about coaching and serious about building a Team in utah that people wouldn’t be able to overlook
  • I played in all 82 Games that year and got a lot more minutes
  • I was part of the Team and that was that
  • He came up to me and told me he had watched every Game france played in the world cup
  • He twice scored a career high 20 Points
  • It was considered one of the best european Teams
  • Marking his first career player of the week honor

  • I didn’t know him very well but i could tell that he was serious
  • I found out that my dream had come true
  • But there have been a lot of moments since i got to utah that i’ll never forget
  • We talked about big man stuff and he offered to put me through some drills
  • He had a career high eight assists in a 110 102 win over the chicago bulls
  • It’s very possible that you didn’t know that
  • And how she would come home every single day exhausted
  • But i need to make a change to my mom’s favorite phrase
  • We pick him up and keep going
  • But in my head i always knew we’d surprise everybody
  • Looking back i can see how it was obviously difficult for her
  • I’ll leave you with one last number
  • She was happy to sacrifice everything so that her children would always have a future
  • I knew he was going to be special
  • I want you to remember the number 25
  • That’s another number i want you to remember
  • It was a lot like the projects you might see in american inner cities
  • She worked in restaurants — basically anything she could do to provide for me and my brother and sister
  • I just say what’s on my mind
  • Maybe some people thought it was a long shot
  • When he scored 41 his second month in the league damn
  • And we’re going to need all of you
  • And i think there was one main reason why we got quin
  • But go out and take what’s yours
  • So i had no idea what to expect when i got here
  • My second year in the league
  • I didn’t really get treated like a rookie
  • And it seemed like nobody outside of utah was even talking about me
  • This meant i no longer could go home on the weekends
  • Coach quin would just remind us to keep working at it — keep improving — and eventually we would get people’s attention and respect
  • I know it was hard for my mother to deal with me moving so far away at such a young age — i was her last child
  • I always look at how a new guy approaches defense — does he play as hard on d as he does on the other end donovan did
  • And i don’t think a single one of the tv shows or movies i watched had anything to do with utah
  • But we don’t have what we want yet
  • I started getting attention around school — it started to look like i might have a bright future playing basketball
  • I believed that if i could get that chance
