  • A lot of people asked me what it's like to be in the NBA.

  • And over the past few years, former teammates and friends have given me a lot of advice on what it's like to fit in.

  • For example, first impressions are really important.

  • So it's essential to understand greetings and basic communication.

  • Communication.

  • Whaddup, fam?

  • ...fam?

  • It's been a while, I haven't seen you in a hot minute.

  • Minute? I feel like I haven't seen you in few months.

  • Huh? You're tripping, man, you're on one.

  • I'm on...what!?

  • Ahh ... my bad.

  • Dang, bro. You learn hella slow. Should've went to Stanford.

  • Good job, Hartford.

  • ... It's Harvard.

  • What!?

  • From there, it's all about being sacrificial and doing the little things.

  • Sacrifice.

  • Picture?

  • Yeah, sure!

  • Alright. 1, 2, 3...I'm in the NBA also.

  • No body is trying to take a picture with you, man.

  • Because we're always in the public's spotlight, it's crucial to look the part, and understand fashion.

  • Fashion.

  • What's up TY? You wanna go eat?

  • -What the hell are those? -Khakis are sweet.

  • Man, I'm a fashion icon. I can't be seen that with you in those kit.

  • Tighter, man. Come on.

  • Exactly.

  • ... seriously?

  • People think shooting is all about form and technique, but it's not.

  • It's all about the high socks man, and take off the head band.

  • Equally important is to understand the culture of the NBA.

  • You know, like dancing and music.

  • Dancing.

  • Dwight! Your dance finally can fit with me. Check it out.

  • Killed it, right!

  • That really sucked. You're supposed to be a professional.

  • Alright, show me then.

  • You gotta do like that gotta move them like this you know what i'm saying.

  • It's cool man, I mean, it's no Charlotte, but it's alright.

  • What's there to do in Charlotte?

  • Well, you gonna be surprised, man. Hold on a second.

  • YG!?

  • Oh yeah. You know that song?

  • Pshhh...

  • First things first I love all my (Niggas)

  • Hello?

  • Don't get me wrong. It has taken a while to become this cool.

  • Which means, shouldn't be that much of a problem to fit in with my new Charlotte teammates.

  • What's going on? I'm Kemba, man. Nice to meet you.
