“He should take the same confidence he has in the pickup and translate it into an NBA game,” Johnson says. “That’s all. You’re going to do misses and shots. You don’t care about misses. He needs to keep taking them.”
Johnson says talent is clearly not an issue … but when BS goes to court, he should be remembered as that guy.
