One Take at a Time

“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best” - Tim Duncan said this once, and I took it as a sign to keep working on myself, without fail! Being a basketball player all my life, it was natural for me to eventually become an NBA writer at EssentiallySports. Being a Spurs fan, I fell in love with Duncan and McGrady for making me the fan I am today. Their dedication to their field inspired me to never give up, despite my knee surgeries. Today, as an NBA writer, I get to share my unique perspectives with the world. The fact that I actually get to write about the things that I love, especially while getting to watch them live, it something I love about my job. With San Antonio landing a cornerstone for their franchise in Wembanyama, make sure you are paying close attention to Spurs-based pieces. When I am not knee-deep into all things basketball, I am gaming. I love PUBG, NBA2K and Forza Horizon. Want to have a spirited debate on my articles? Hit me up on the links below.
