â€œI had to learn the hard way my first year playing in Europe when and realized what it takes to make shots and play defense consistently throughout a long professional season. I hit the wall and had to get in shape all over again. Mental toughness and dedication is what I attained and it showed in my play. These are the workouts that I have always done when the season starts and I try to do them at least 3 times a week. They keep you strong and limber to play at a high level for an expended period of time. However, nothing replaces desire. Finish Strong!
