Tips/advice for aspiring players:
"Never be afraid to play a better player! It will only improve your game. If you see a great player shooting alone, ask them to shoot and ask questions while playing. It will drastically improve your game if you listen to their advice."
Best advice he received from someone:
"Focus on perfecting one aspect of your game at a time (i.e. draw, top, breaking, jumping, etc.). Tackling the game as a whole is much too daunting."
