Crossroads Webisode Week #5: Supporting Cast [ VIDEO ]
So Webisode #5 of the highly acclaimed "Crossroads" is ready for your viewing pleasure. This week I show some love to the people that have always gotten my back...my supporting cast. Lots and lots of love to my people...mi familia. I couldn't do any of this without them and wouldn't be where I am without them. And throughout this whole process, free agency and documenting this journey, they have gotten my back and make "Crossroads" possible. Big shout out to my family, my agency Excel Sports, Tivity Social for their production (remember, everything is being shot on smartphones), Sportsblog of course, the team at WeVideo, Wilson basketball, Chawla Sports, and Samsung for providing the phones.
I know we are halfway through "Season 1" (hopefully we can expand this series), but wanted to reiterate why I am doing this. The definition of "crossroads" is a point in which a crucial decision MUST be made that will have far reaching consequences. I couldn't define my life, RIGHT NOW, any better. It starts with free agency but it is much deeper than that. I am turning 30 in a few weeks (go Leo lol), have been in the League for 9 years and have a lot of basketball and a lot more to prove. At my CROSSROADS, I am ready to make the crucial decision to take my play to another level. So at the end of the day, I did this to show fans what a guy goes through in free agency but to also show that we, as players/athletes/celebrities, are real people with everyday concerns. Like I said in Webisode #4, "The Waiting Game", it's like going on a job interview and waiting for that call. I am waiting for that call...
I'm definitely going to start to post more because I hope you, as the fans/readers, enjoy it. It isn't about me, necessarily, but about the process, about being at a crossroads, and choosing with positive movements to make a great decision that will have far reaching POSITIVE consequences.
Enjoy, comment, tweet at me, keep watching...
And I would be remiss to not mention, my NBA brother, Paul George. I pray and hope for a speedy recovery to PG. He is a great basketball player, competitor and person and I BELIEVE he will come back stronger.
