IA: I’ll tell you we have a lot of talented players, but it wasn’t always the same because we were 17, 18, 19. So it’s not the same, even though they’re great players, but it’s not the same on a physical level. So that was the biggest adjustment, just knowing that I wanted to make it to the NBA, but the people I played against there were aiming for a club or a two-way, or something like that, they were playing for the same club. thing and just adjusting to the physicality and rhythm that they play in the G League. I think that was the biggest difference. But yeah, during practice when we have fights they help us a lot by being physical and stuff. They did not let us go easily, no quarter was given. I think it’s busy, but only in the games you learn game by game. You might learn tricks, or just how to use your body better, just through experience or just by playing a lot of games.
