At the time, the league was much older. It’s not as young as it is today. So, nobody was really thinking much of me. I was the kid that… shot a bunch of air-balls, you know what I mean? And at that point, Michael provided a lot of guidance for me. I had a question about shooting his turnaround shot, so I asked him about it. And he gave me a great, detailed answer, but on top of that, he said, “If you ever need anything, give me a call.” He’s like my big brother.
