Summer Rewind: Willie Cauley-Stein
The Kings center returns for another season after a busy offseason both on and off the court.
Work hard. Have fun. Stay dedicated.
Throughout the summer, the former Kentucky Wildcats big man has been in the gym working on his craft. After a grueling training regimen, Cauley-Stein is primed to show out.
For Willie, staying in the lab doesn’t just mean working in the gym. The artist known as Trill dropped more designs from his clothing line, Will Change Sports.
Cauley-Stein also took his talents to the Philippines with the Jr.NBA, where he helped coach the youngsters as well as take part in naming Jr. NBA All-Stars. He didn’t do it alone though, he had WNBA legend Sheryl Swoopes joining him every step of the way.
Swoopes made a substantial impact on Cauley-Stein. He said of the WNBA all-star, "she challenged me the whole week to be better and each day I felt like I learned something to better myself." According to Willie, Swoopes was astonishing to witness and he harbors gratitude for receiving the opportunity.
We know that Willie loves his art, and this summer was no different. Aside from keeping his Instagram page fresh, he also opened up an art studio in Sacramento.

To quote Champagne Papi, "This a Rollie, not a stopwatch, [Willie] don't ever stop."
