“You know, my father said that today would be the greatest day of my life. And you’re right, dad. It is. But it’s not because of basketball. You see, today I learned that my wife, Haley, is pregnant. And while it’s an absolute honor to be recruited by Duke University, I guess what I have to say to you today is this. Where I play basketball - if I play basketball - is no longer a decision for me to make alone. It’s a decision that I’ll make with my wife and my family’s best interests at heart. And when I do, I’ll let you all know. And my wife couldn’t be here today, so I just wanted to say one thing to her. Haley, no matter what happens, we’ll face it together. But I promise you, I’ve never been happier. Everything’s gonna be okay. I love you.”
