I was very pleased that the positive things about me and my game outshone the aggressive style of play I use. I would never tone that down because I believe in that style of play and I believe that you can play rough on the court and still be a good sport.
I was raised on the values of speaking up and making a positive difference in a very political family that believed in the importance of public service.
I think the state of the NFL has a very positive outlook.
I think that giving mindless praise is ridiculous. But I understand why parents do it. They want their kids to feel good about themselves. But parents are never going to teach their children true positive self esteem by praising everything they do.
I think it’s almost an indulgence to focus on the dark side of things. And as you get older you want to focus on the positive.
I think every time I go in a game I have added something positive. I have gotten a rebound or made a defensive play. That is what I try to focus on.
I think anytime you can affect people in general in a positive way then you’re a lucky individual.
I realize I will always be the poster child for police brutality but I can try to use that as a positive force for healing and restraint.
I know some people will be surprised to hear it but I’ve found that my music whether its blues or rock or whatever you want to call it can be channeled into a positive direction that actually helps people.
I just hope it grows into where it was before because I want my son to see it. I want him to have a positive memory of it going forward so he can be proud of his daddy.
