Seeing The World

Hey everyone, look at me go, writing posts left and right.

I just learned about the training camp that me and my team are headed to this year, so I decided to use this opportunity to tell you a little bit about my travels during the years.

Playing overseas gave me the chance to visit and go to places I never thought in my life that I would get the chance to visit.

Even though it's not really a visit since we don't spend more then 2-3 days in each country/city it's still something I can tell my grandchildren when I'm gray and old.

I have been in so many countries, so many shitty hotels, but also in really nice ones. I have seen great arenas and some that I rather forget.

Great games and great memories, terrible flights that you rather be practicing for five more hours than sitting on a plane on the red eye, so tired and uncomfortable That you can barely take it.

But also flights that your heart is so full of joy after a great game that you don't care about anything. That you feel on top of the world after a great game and a great win for your team that it's worth it all.

I have been almost everywhere already, almost no country left unvisited, no major city left untouched, it's something I will always treasure, at least looking back.

A lot of the times the visit itself isn't that great, but the memories are. Most of the visits contain a lot of food, a lot of gym time and games, not a lot of sightseeing, but just enough to remember where I was.

Besides that I'm doing well, feeling good about the places I'm going and where my life is headed, guess today was a good day.

I was asked here, if because of the strike I will get the chance to play against N.B.A players. well, I can just say that I played with players that played for a few if not more years in the N.B.A. I played against players that had a good N.B.A career and I'm going to play against some more because of the lockout, always nice I have to say.

Enjoy the weekend and your day
