Golden State Warriors guard Jordan Poole talked about his basketball journey after winning the 2022 NBA Finals last night.
(Via House of Highlights):
“I wouldn’t say I was down there often [G League], but it was very pivotal to learn and to kinda get that experience of what it was like being the guy and how you can impact the game and help your team win. But, I always knew that I’d be able to play at the highest level and win. It was just a matter of when and being able to do it with these guys who have been here, who are extremely experienced. It’s just truly remarkable and special.
“People tried to write us off a couple years ago and say the dynasty was over and they tried to write me off personally, but if you believe in yourself — to anybody listening: if your back is against the wall and you believe in yourself and you think it’s possible, stick to it no matter what. No matter the noise, don’t let anybody ever tell you that you can’t. As cliché as it sounds, it’s a fact.”
