And it wasn’t something we were proud of or something I said at 6 years old, I wanted to be a hood n---a. And I told myself, I enjoy playing basketball, I enjoy playing in the NBA, and this is a transition that I wanted to make. Today, as his basketball career sits in its twilight at 36 years old, he is something different: an NBA champion, a student of Earth’s natural resources, a Queensbridge success story and an advocate for mental health awareness.“It took a lot.

Sports Spurs take 2-0 series lead in blowout win over Grizzlies

Up 17 points with 4:58 remaining in the third quarter, San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green intercepted a lazy inbounds pass from the Memphis Grizzlies, hustled to keep it in bounds and saved the possession after throwing it off Tony Allen’s hands.If there was a defining play in the Spurs’ 94-68 Game 2 win over the Grizzlies that was it. No Spurs starter played more than 27 minutes, as significant a stat as Memphis’ abysmal shooting percentage.2016 NBA playoffs: Best of the first round.

But there is a discussion to be had, one that should be led by someone who doesn’t don a Warriors uniform.From that measured vantage point, here’s how I see it: Leonard . Whiteside was a distant third (83 points).“I think (voters) could have went either way,” Green said.
