  • You played with Indiana.

  • You're moving back with the G League team, the Fort Wade, mad ants.

  • This is a part of the NBA that a lot of young guys go through that we really don't talk about that much because they're always watching games in the association.

  • But you're finding your skills.

  • You're helping to clubs at once.

  • Take us through the whole process of sort of being on this team.

  • Wait.

  • Now I'm on this team.

  • It's got to be sort of an interesting journey.

  • Oh, yeah, definitely interesting journey this year has been, I think, the most interesting out of all of all of the prior years and of the season, because this year is just a bubble.

  • So it's always 15 games, um, in the G and then you go right back up to your There's an association with your club.

  • So, um, these 15 games have been really good.

  • Super super good is just, you know, work on my skills, touch it up.

  • And like you said, there are a lot of young guys, a lot of rookies down here, uh, doing the same thing Cash tell people at home know so they can understand because I spent a little time in the G League when I was trying to come back after my accident, uh, of how how gritty it is, like you have people that are fighting for checks down there, fighting to make it, which is completely different than being in the league and living that first class life.

  • Oh, yeah, no, there's there's a lot of dudes down here who, you know, like you said, working out things, got bills to pay, just there about it.

  • They're grinding.

  • So, um, it's definitely not easy.

  • It's definitely not a walking apart.

  • Still, the highly competitive, highly skilled dudes down here.

  • How do you think this is going to help you as you go back up to the N B A.

  • Uh, with your game polish up your game?

  • I think it's gonna help me immensely just because, like you said, it's pro basketball.

  • And any pro basketball is gonna help young guys development, especially coming straight out of, uh, college.

  • So, um, you know, I think it's gonna help a lot, and I think it it builds that confidence, and it also helps you refine your skills.

  • Especially this this past year.

  • I mean, so all of all of us young guys.

  • The last time we, you know, we played a lot of real games was like March 2020.
