I always envisioned Mike Gansey thinking "Eat your heart out, Chris Mullin!" whenever I saw him shoot in college. (This is Scott's caption, by the way. Gansey rarely talks in third person.)
Yours truly is on his way to China tomorrow with legends and a few fellow D-League player. I'll be playing two charity games to help in the NBA's continued commitment to support rebuilding efforts in the earthquake stricken Sichuan Province.
For the full press release, go here, but I'll try to explain it the best that I can.
We will first be traveling to the great city of Chengdu (better known as China's party capital) and I am very much looking forward to representing the D-League - as well as participating in NBA Cares programs - to give back to the people of China. Still, the best part of the trip might be spending time with the New Jersey Nets dancers!
I'm going to let you in on a little secret: Back in my middle school days, I rocked the Golden State Warriors Mullin jersey and my two buddies had Mitch Richmond and Tim Hardaway jerseys so we could form our own Run TMC. While in China, I also plan to challenge my favorite the immortal Mullin in some kind of 3-point shooting contest - even though that might not be a good idea.
Anyway, as many of you know, China is not the closest place in the world and it will be a VERY long flight over so I am sure I will have plenty of time to blog on my way over there and will be checking in with you as much as I can.
Talk to you very soon...
