I have A LOT of love for Portland... a place I always saw myself playing. A place I PRAYED about getting too, and it happened... unfortunately the sh***y part about this game is this side of it. Years and years of cultivating a relationship with your peers to all see it wiped away with in a couple hours. Even though my stay here was short lived, I felt like I gained some lifelong friends. My guys held me down regardless of how I played, we were all in this together... I dont even know what else to say but #GetOffThePropertyBruv #InsideJokes @trailblazers thank you for the opportunity
