Pre-game warm-ups. Had to be ready for the game 2 bounce back. The stat line (from memory because it was not a focal point throughout the game): 12 points (2/3 on 3-pointers, 4/8 on free throws), 7 rebounds, 5 assists.
Our team really made some amazing progress from game 1, putting on a defensive showcase that fuelled our offense. Unfortunately we came up short 48-47, but we are closing in on Ws - just getting the losses for the season out of the way.
Apart from the game breakdown, the true highlight of the night was being able to play infront of my grandparents and mom. My cheering squad even erupted with claps and whistles during the pre-game warm-ups, getting the attention of both my team and the opposing team from the get go. They are one of a kind, and I am beyond words at how enthusiastic they were (and always have been). Seeing them smile, cheer, and give me high 5s (yes, even my grandparents😝) made the pressures of draft day well worth it.
While I know I could have taken a serious run at professional sports, I don't know if the excitement of seeing my family in the crowd at an arena would quite compare to last night, in a high school gym, for a men's league. They had no obligation, no political reason to be there - they just were because they wanted to be there...Family...you just keep surprising me and blowing my mind at how blessed I truly am. Thank you for your endless support regardless of the realm I do battle in.
Period . I know who does and who doesn’t....and the ones who don’t still get all the love. But the ones who believe in me, see things in me that I couldn’t even see in myself not too long ago, speak life into me, encourage me and are still rooting for me in the midst of my mistakes and failures and my comeback season....I appreciate yal more than you know. Honestly, everything I do I do for more than me, I’m really nothing more than a vessel and I just gotta show my appreciation how I can 🙏🏾 #esgs#striveforgreatness#appreciation#love#life

Don’t let others change your beliefs.
If you believe in yourself and your abilities, don’t let anyone stop you from doing what you believe in.
It may seem imperfect, which may be the case... but you will never know unless you try.
So try!! 👊🔝💯 #success#twigglee
