Well I find myself in a veteran leadership position here in Botas Turkey. I learned tonight from my teammates that I’m old and since I’m in my 30’s I have to always have my shirt tucked in (even with sweats). I’m not allowed to act silly anymore. There definitely has to be some type of plan for my life and I should be living it out. These comments came from the young bucks on my team Sharnee’ Zoll, Courtney Paris and Epiphany Prince. I thought I would talk alittle bit about them on this blog and show them some love since I might actually mention them from time to time..
My pt guard Sharnee’ Zoll 23 played at UVA and she is currently leading in assist in Euro-cup. She is forever dropping dimes to me that I’m starting to feel extreme heat when I blow my layups. She is about 5’5 and even though she is little she plays big. She is also my translator for the coach and everything else that is going on, because if you know me I’m usually in my own world. I also suffer a little ADD…lol I would tell you how she was off the court but she is always talking to her boo back in the states. I ain’t mad at her , “Love is a Beautiful Thing”.
Courtney Paris age 22 played for Oklahoma and we all recently watched this double double machine throughout her career. Courtney (CoCo) is what I call her, is the only big girl I’ve ever met that actually had no problem sitting in the middle between two shorties. All I can say is WOW! She’s a very nice person and a heck of a player. I mean we go at in practice and all I can say is if Coco is in the paint I can forget about getting that rebound. To watch her is one thing, to play against her or with her is a whole different story. I definitely think we will make each other alot better. It has definitely been fun for me playing with my back to the basket again against her. Tiring but fun!!!!
Last but not least is Miss Epiphany Prince that played for Rutgers. She just turned 22 on this past Monday. Happy Birthday Piphdagr8! I’m not gonna say my age but I’m now 10 years her senior. She has even called me “Old Head” on twitter, and she wants me to follow her and tell others. (Kids these days) This is a big time scorer you guys and it’s alot of fun to watch her play and workout with. She is always sleeping or rapping to Jay Z. She loves this guy and if you don’t know She’s from New York!!!
I enjoy these girls and I just try to help them out when I can, but I definitely don’t try to keep up with them. Heck they can’t keep up with me..Maybe one day they will be as smooth as me. I may be older this is true, but I’m still on the court making it do what it do!!!!
