I know, I know...I haven't posted in a long time, but yall have to understand that I've been on break. After a long, amazing season, I needed a break to just take everything in, enjoy winning, and relax. I've had a great summer. I've done pretty much everything you can think of (well maybe not everything), and I have to tell yall about it all- the ESPYs, vacations, camps, golfing, etc. I'm going to take you on a timeline of my summer thus far, so stay with me.
As soon as we won and the parade was over, I had to fly to Louisville. I had to catch the last day of my first camp. I remember being extremely tired because I hadn't slept in about 3 days, and I was running on low fuel. But, I had to be there to see the kids. I really take pride in my camps, and I like to make sure the kids get a quality experience. I know me not being there would have disappointed the kids, so I made it happen. I actually missed being honored at the Red Sox game with my teammates because I had to be at my camp. When I got to the camp, the kids were soo excited. They made me a nice little banner that said "congratulations." I played a couple of games with the kids, talked to them about basketball, and signed autographs for them. They were all excited! I was glad that they had a good time, and that they understood why I hadn't been there all week. I ended up hosting 5 basketball camps this summer- 4 in Louisville and 1 in Lexington. They all turned out good. I actually tried to have one in Boston, but I couldn't because of conflicting dates. I hope I can have one there next year tho.
What's next.....Vegas. After my second camp, I went to Vegas with some of my teammates. During the season, we had said that we would go on a trip together if we won the championship, and that's exactly what we did. We only stayed for a couple of days, but it was nice to just chill and not have to worry about playing.
After Vegas was the ESPYs. Yall know I think I'm the best dressed on our team, so it was just another opportunity for me to get fly. Me and my girl went out there and had a really good time. We ate good, partied, and hung out with the rest of the team and their families. The show was real nice too. I hadn't ever been to an award show before, so it was a good experience...it was even better because we won!
After the ESPYs, I came back to Louisville. I finished up my camps, golfed, and, of course, skated. My golf game has actually improved. I think I'm kind of good now. I've been going pretty regularly to play, and I'm a lot better than I was last year. I'm killing all my homies that I usually go golfing with. Other than golfing, the only thing that I've been doing is skating. Yall know I love to skate. The whole summer, I've been going skating every Friday and Sunday when I'm in town. Skating is a way for me to relax. I go and just be in my own world.
After my last camp, I went to Miami on my family vacation. It was about 18 of us...all of my closest relatives. It was crazy! Whenever we all get together, we can't help but to have fun. All the kids got to experience the beach for the first time, the guys got to hang out and party, and the women got to shop. It was perfect for everyone. I love Miami, and I'm glad that my family got to experience it.
After Miami, I went down to Houston to chill with Perk. He had a party down there, and me and my girl went down for the weekend. We had a good time. I hadn't seen Perk since the ESPYs, so it was good to catch up with him. We didn't do much...just chilled really. The party that he had was coo. I think ima go back down there before the season starts.
Last week, I was in Boston. I went to Boston after I left Houston and stayed for a week. I mainly went to work out. I hadn't picked up a ball since we won, and I figured I needed to jump start my training. I just went and lifted and shot by myself for the most part. I needed to see what shape my body was in. Btw..I'm in pretty good shape.
Now, I'm back in Louisville. I will be here for the rest of the week then I'm headed back to Boston for good. I had a few things to wrap up here-that's why I came back. I'm ready for the season to start tho. I want to get back to Boston and start working out regularly. I want to be ready when preseason starts. I hope I didn't lose yall with everything that I talked about. Hope yall aren't too mad that I haven't been posting...just been chillin and enjoying my summer. Be back soon...I'll holla!
