GRIND-HARD101 - Oct 28, 2012

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Hello world. Hope all is great well after a big road win against Primorje we are now 1-1 Im pretty happy where we are as a team do to playing our first two longest road trip games of the season traveling 6hr to Tivat then the following week 7hrs to Primorje. But let me start off by updating you about our season opener last weeks against Teodo Tivat. The first few minutes of the game we looked good until Tivat got going knocking down 3 after 3 they then went on a 12-0 run led that had us going into half time down 18 points or so. Second half we came out firing away from 3 cutting the league down to 9 but the tough more experienced Tivat team kept a double digit lead going, so we ended up losing to considered the best team in the league by 12 points. I Played pretty well started off a bit slow with only 7 points going into the 2nd half but ended up scoring 19 of my 26pts in the second half.

This past Saturday against Primorje we were in the same situation as our first game, we started off good again then all of the sudden we found ourselves in a dog fight again going into the half down 15 points not to mention I was in early foul trouble and didn't play much of the first half with only 2 points. But the first couple trips down the court in the beginning of the second half I came out on a mission hitting four 3s straight and with a little better defense from us as a unit we were able to get a couple steals for some easy buckets, but that second half I can say was my best second half performance in Europe hitting 27pts in 20min ending the game with 29pts. Coach Rejhan Palamar did an great job rotating the right players in at the right times one thing about coach Rejhan hes a young coach with a lot of ambition to do great things he keeps us fired up on game days so that's a big plus hes kinda like a players coach and for those who don't really understand when I say players coach that means he will treat you like a best friend on and off the court but when its time to get serious we all know by that look he gets in hes eyes that means he means business. Not to mention a lot of our bench players stepped up huge, like Marko Perovic who hit some big shots and clutch free throws down the stretch & Admir Nurkovic with some solid point guard play when I was in foul trouble to help us seal the win.

Now to the fun part road trips, They can be a bit long and boring when your traveling 6-7hrs for a game so of course we clown around and play jokes on who ever falls asleep first but most of the time were singing songs off the radio, I dont know most of them so I just play like I do to pass time. But getting a chance to see the sea and some of the most gorgeous mountains in the world as far eyes can see is a amazing. I didn't know Montenegro was this beautiful now I cant wait to see how everything looks once it starts to snow I bet its going to be breath taking.

I always like to give special shutouts at the end of every blogs to show appreciation. My good friend Jason Fry with Legends Basketball & William Logan former assistant coach at Missouri Baptist University, now coaching at the University of Bridgeport, these two great guys I couldn't thank them enough for their passion for the game and their own dedicated and personal time they gave me over 2 years of grinding every day, night in night out. Last season I didn't get a job to playing overseas so I took the PBL route which is a minor league in the states right under the NBADL for the St. Louis Phoenix. Before and after the season every morning I would wake up at 4am to meet up with Jason Fry at the gym around 5am to train and work on every aspect of my game for about a hour or so then I would take a quick shower because I had to be downtown St. Louis at one of the local public schools to substitute teach all grades 1-12 for our future leaders of America until 3:30pm but that wasn't enough for me because I knew how bad I wanted to be successful so right after I would finish teaching for the day, I would grab something to eat then be right back at the gym to meet up with William Logan at 6pm for a second workout for about 2 hours and that was my routine Monday-Friday and those two guys never asked me for a penny thats why those two guys will always get max respect and love from me If I got it they got it Team #GrindHard. Now for the 2012 -13 season Im back in Europe playing in the top league in Montenegro leading the league in scoring with 27.5ppg shooting 56.5%FG 61.5% from behind the arc playing every game with a sense of urgency and a chip on my shoulder not to disrespect anyone but I came here to kill. I have put in to many countless hours and sacrificed way to much not to, if I didn't tell you I wanted to be the best player in the league I would be lying to you thats why I play the game to be the best, Im very competitive I even have ambition to be the best blogger in Europe. If you put your mind to it hard work really does pay off if you have the drive,dedication and can stay consistent at whatever your working at the sky's the limit. But the #1 key to success is keeping God first with him anything is possible.

One last thing before I let you go because I can keep you reading forever if you let me hahaha... but for the people and fans from Montenegro & Serbia last week I had a chance to watch a good Adriatic League rivalry game Buducnost vs. Partizan The atmosphere of that game was something to see I absolutely love how passionate the fans are for both teams, I mean you have die hard fans that are willing to go to jail or having to be pepper sprayed in the games. Cmon now who wouldn't want to play for a group of loyal fans like that night in night out. I Know I would absolutely love to play for either one of those clubs in front of 7,000-18,000+ fans every night going nuts you cant help but to bring youre A game.

It's winter here in Rozaje the northern part of Montenegro is very cold, ICE cold if you ask me, especially being born and raised in the southern part of Texas. It sometimes snows non-stop but it's a very beautiful site to see when the tallest trees and mountains are covered in thick snow while the river water streams are slowly flowing [read more]
