All of us are in the same place, each with our own rooms, and we were allowed to do whatever we wanted. Which is totally different than college, where they manage your schedule for you. In the NBA, you're on your own.
Recently partnered with Express Men as a brand ambassador, so my closet is full of the new fashion trends and styles that keep me fresh for games.
It's crazy how fast you get out of shape if you miss a couple days of action.
There's a reason that I have confidence out there, and it's about how I prepare for games and for series and seasons and whatnot, so we've got to stick with that kind of thought process.
There are so many things we have to overcome in this life with Jesus, His work on the cross. He's paid the ultimate price for us, so I'm proud to be a child of God.
I shoot the ball so well that sometimes you fall in love with it and think it'll get you out of certain situations.
A wet spot on the floor kind of put a scare in myself, so you never know inside those lines what might happen.
To be able to finish opportunities that I do get in the paint, that makes a difference.
To win MVP was a dream come true for sure, but there are guys who have done this multiple times.
That feeling is so intoxicating, walking off the court holding the Larry O'Brien trophy. So I just want to do that again.
I know what I do for my team and what my teammates expect of me on both ends of the floor.
I am not a BART regular but have taken it probably five times to and from the city with some of my teammates. Nice to just hop on the train and enjoy some of the views of the Bay Area while I'm out.
Most home teams have chapels, so when I'm on the road I'll probably go to their services.
Right after the draft, when I came out to Oakland, there was a press conference and a dinner with the owner, GM, and Coach Nelson. We did some sightseeing and some house searching the next day, but to be honest, I had no idea what I was doing. I tried to find a spot close to our gym, because I figured that's where I'd spend most of my time.
Most of the stuff I try in a game, in the moment, I have supreme confidence I'm going to execute it.
You have so much fun playing games. We all love basketball, so we never want the season to end, 'cause then it's five months of sitting around and watching the playoffs.
We have a great group of guys that really sacrifice every night, care about each other, and try to play the right away.
I'm just blessed, man, to be able to represent solidarity with the small schools I went to.
Some of the stuff I do on the court is what most people think they can do.
I know the blessing of having a dad who played 16 years in the league. That experience, and seeing him as an example, let me know that it's possible. It's not easy, but it's possible.
On the court, I want to try and get to the free-throw line a little more. And as a point guard, you can always get better at your decision-making and limiting your mistakes.
People have told me, 'You shouldn't bring your daughter onto the podium, 'cause it's the workplace,' and things like that. But I'm not gonna really listen to that. I'm gonna do what I think is fun for me and my family, and everything'll be all right.
I expected to be a pretty good NBA point guard and hopefully win a championship. But MVP and all this stuff? Not really.
We're not going to go 82-0 and blow everybody out. We are going to be challenged.
I've been blessed with talents to play this game and been put on a stage to impact a lot of people. I don't want to take that for granted.
Whatever that means, however you got on that mountain, why not try to climb it? And do it in your own way.
I want to thank God, obviously for the health, for the talent He's given me, for my family who supports me, for the things that basketball's taught me on and off the court. For the people that I've been able to meet through the game of basketball.
I always have confidence, whether I miss four in a row or make four in a row, that the next one's going in. To a coach, sometimes that might not make sense.
I had talked to a lot of people in Golden State's front offices before the draft. They said they liked me, but they had a lot of guards, so I didn't think that I would end up there.
Back in Oakland, we have a lot of food in the locker room, but on the road, it's mostly just fruit. So we have to prepare differently. But really, once you get to the gym, everything on the road is pretty much the same.
Sometimes people make it seem like you have to have certain prerequisites or a crazy life story in order to be successful in this world. But the truth is you really don't.
I think about the milestones from my childhood and what it will be like to watch our kids go through them. Taking Riley to her first day of school was a whirlwind. I can't imagine what middle school is going to be like, and high school, and graduation.
I wasn't going to shy away from getting married when I did and having a baby young and starting a family, even with the job that I chose.
I won't have to do any major changes to continue my career a long way, hopefully. Just hopefully stay healthy and be able to help a team out as I go through and still play at a pretty high level.
I like that Brita makes tap water taste good, so you don't need to spend money or waste plastic with bottled water.
Once it gets down to single-digit games, you know the season's end is approaching, and we're all pretty physically tired.
Basketball is booming, and it's not just an Under Armour standpoint: it's about the game itself. Kids going out and playing and being inspired by what we do on the court.
In the NBA, you're never immune to rumors and trade rumors and free agency stuff.
We're going to have to work. We're going to have to play well. Nothing will be given to us.
I hope to play until I'm, like, 38 or something, and that's a lot of years in the game and a lot of travel and a lot of sacrifice on my family's part.
I am pretty chill before games. Have a go-to routine that keeps me busy until we are ready to take the court so I'm not just sitting around anxious for the game.
The way I try to represent my family and coaches, I think all are characteristics the league aspires to portray. That's just who I am.
Your touch and your feel for the game is pretty much gone if you don't work on it - at least get some shots up or dribble the ball.
It's kind of a weird process being pitched by the company you're already with.
We knew sports was important to us and our family, but there are priorities in life.Obviously, faith is foremost; how we did in school is important. If we didn't handle that business then there were no privileges.
