So I know I missed a week, so I have a lot to touch base on. On another note we took two more tough losses. The toughest thing for me is losing this much;coming from successful programs in the united states. Losing is something I will never settle for or sit right with me.

I'm learning that each game has a valued lesson in it for me as I continue my pro career. Dealing with many trails and tribulations adjusting to life here, I use basketball as an escape goat. Games here have been interesting for me, a lot of my opponents are allowed to play dirty and do anything to extra to get and edge on me. It's almost like I I can't retaliate because I am so vocal and aggressive on the floor. The referees are always watching me but are blind to what other do to me down low in the paint. Growing up and playing basketball in Brooklyn if you were soft you were called out immediately ; and you had a long summer in the park or long season on the hardwood. I honestly I love a physical game but it's really getting out of hand because games are not called fair at all, it just making me more aggressive and hungrier.

Sundays home game great turn out . Fans are really getting into basketball now. It's like I give them a since of hope for our ball club. Although I didn't have the strongest outing because of two early fouls sat me out early. Which really messed up my rhythm and makes me passive for the entire first half. But also being doubled in the post every time I touched the ball. I never been doubled like that in the post but obviously I take the double team and make the smart pass and re post. It's more of me finding other ways to score the ball and be effective on the offensive end. I have to find that good balance of aggression and playing smart.

My goal here is to at least get wins a game and be apart of team history before I depart Montenegro after the season.

HUNGRY,HUMBLE,NEVER SATISFIED,
