Playoff Push

Posted by JLin

Hey Everyone,

There's a month left in the season and we are really pushing hard to make the 6th spot in the playoffs. We have shown our inconsistencies as a young team by winning some really good games and losing some bad games, but in general we're getting better.  We have a lot of potential and I'm grateful to be a part of such an exciting team.

On a personal level, I am working on playing at the highest level I can play at every night and have a long list of things to work on this summer.

I am really excited to have launched my Foundation. PAIR (Partnership for the Advancement and Immersion of Refugees) was the winner of our inaugural Making A Difference project and I am really excited to partner with them. All three organizations involved in the project are doing some amazing work in the Houston community, and I hope you guys continue to support Workshop Houston and Yellowstone Academy

Here's a picture of me with the students from PAIR.

Also I am having a lot of fun getting to know Houston as my list of places to eat and hang out at grows longer and longer. Recent hobbies include the piano, the driving range, and the mall.

And our team has become close on and off the court so here's a way to get to know my teammates better.


Funniest: Greg Smith 

Best Dressed: Francisco Garcia 

Only person I have dunked on in the NBA: Francisco Garcia 

Eats the most: Omer Asik 

Most underrated comedian: James Anderson 

Most athletic: Patrick Beverley 

Longest Beard: James Harden 

Uses the most hair product: Chandler Parsons 


And I want to leave you guys with a verse that I have been meditating on this month. 

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

That's it ...until next time."
