GJ: Um, getting stronger and, uh, having a better mindset and being aggressive.
KW: What NBA players do you look up to?
GJ: Um, you know, I don’t really look up to NBA players, like, I, I watch it and I watch film and I, um, take their moves and stuff like that, study it, so there’s not a particular player that I watch after so…
