Mustafa First Blog! - Dec 1, 2011
follow us on |
Welcome me for the FIRST time readers and fellow bloggers!!!! For those that dont know me Im a former University of Arizona Wildcat PG ( not to be confused with a Sun Devil) born in West Philadelphia, but raised in Uptown Philly. Almost sounds like the Fresh Prince of Bel - Air opening song West Philadelphia born and raised.... HA....
When I started out playing the game of basketball, I had no idea it would take me all over the world. When I was younger, all I knew about bball was playing in my neighborhood and traveling to surrounding areas to compete. My rst memorable moment was having my uncle lift me up to score a basketfelt like a dunk back then! But now that I think about it, my uncle is only 510 so how did he ever lift me up on a regulation basket?!?!?! Something seems sketchy, either my uncle or my memory LOLwell at least for my memorys sake, I now have my own blog to accurately capture my memorable moments, but now they cant be fabricated LOL When I was your age I could grab a silver dollar off the backboard and place a collect call before I came down Guess that would never fly now
Well anyway, now here I stand in my 5th year out of college, a professional athlete, and enjoying every minute of it. Every job has its ups and downs but how can I complain? Ive played in 5 countrys (Poland, Spain, Greece, France, and currently Italy) and got my rst true NBA shot last year with the Washington Wizards. I was called up and signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder from the NBAs developmental league in 2009-10 season also; but didn't log one minute of game action. None the less it was also a great experience being a part of a class act organization spearheaded by owner Clay Bennett and GM Sam Presti. Facing the Lakers in the playoffs and being a part of the preparation and mindset has certainly helped me.
I must say, my funniest experiences or most interesting moments being a professional athlete has been living abroad. Always on the communication side like when Im ordering food , I have the most hilarious dialogues, its like Im playing Pictionary to describe what dish I want. Somehow I make it work.. I arrived in Casale Monferatto, Italy 2 weeks ago and its been everything Ive been looking for as far as an opportunity to play my game. Coach Marco is a big part of why I am happy to be here. The biggest thing I admire about our coach Marco Crespi is his ability and passion to help players improve. His attention to detail is exactly what I need. I was making small mistakes that he was able to quickly help me change and after my rst two outings Im above 50 percent in FGs and 3pt percentage. In my rst game I had my overseas career high of 30pts and got the win. Nothing better than winning and seeing hard work pay off. Outside of that I have awesome teammates that have accepted me and given me the confidence to be myself. Its not always easy when the new guy arrives but its been an easy transition with great guys.. Cant forget how important it is having former Rio Grande Valley (D-league) teammates Garrett Temple and Matt Janning here. Familiar faces with like experiences are truly helpful on and off the court.

Alright its time for my official NapUntil next time CIAO!!!!
