I've been still be able to, like, work out on a daily basis and just Ah, yeah, keep doing what I love to do.
So it's good, of course.
So ah, anyway is let's just get right to this interview.
So my first question is, when did your basketball journey start? And what was that moment where you kind of realized that that you could kind of make it in basketball? Uh, well, my basketball journey.
It actually started, probably when I was around age nine.
That's one, like I officially started playing and like on actual like league, like it was a little rec league and the wife stay.
But I've always been like dribbling like the bull around the house, and I was like probably like to like since I was a baby but I yeah, officially started when I was nine.
And then like when I realized that I could, uh, make it and go somewhere with it was probably like in the eighth grade and like I'm coming from my freshman year and I just yet because, I mean, I was working on my game a lot, and I just like I could really do something with it.
So, yeah, on what? What sort of asked players Guatemala your game after? Um so it's not really like one player in particular.
I mean, I like to like, basically take like, different thing from a lot of point guards in the MBA and kind of like implement it into my game like I mean, one of my favorites.
I like Damian Lillard.
I just like how he's aggressive and like, he knows how to attack the defense and you can shoot from like, anywhere on the court and ah, Chris, Paul.
I mean, he's got like, a really great high I Q.
He's like, really good in the mid range and like he knows how to get his teammates involved.
I mean, those two like in particular and there's like a lot of more.
But those two, specifically, of course.
And, uh and I want to talk about something that I think it's probably what you're most known for is teaming up with Brownie James and LeBron James is my bl team.
Strive for greatness.
What was that whole experience left and have any kind of find you to get you on that team? Oh, yeah.
I mean, that experience is there's a lot of fun. I mean, it was a blessing.
First of all, um, kind of just happened like I mean, my boys sky, he kind of just He hit me up on Instagram, saying, Like, uh, performing this team is like, brand new.
I had no idea what it was at the time, and then he kind of sent me a picture of the guys on the team.
I was, like, dances a lot of high level talent, and I love to, like, be a part of this group.
So right away, kind of when you hit me up, I was already interested, and I just I couldn't wait to, like, get out there and, like, officially start playing with them.
So you Yeah, and you just said out your boy sky.
Where were you playing with him, like during the season.
How are you guys able to be friends before that team? So, yeah, I've known sky since, like, back in middle school, like s experience.
I mean, we've, like, always seen each other.
I like camps and stuff, and, um, I just like I've been following him since I was really young.
So we've always known each others.
Who, uh, we were so yeah, of course.
And I can't talk about the games.
You guys play like I I know I would be watching those.
I just come logs are like, I guess tournament recaps on what? Mars Really, whatever was called and it was kind of it was always an atmosphere where people were always rooting against you.
So what was that kind of like playing on, I guess the for one team, in a way.
Oh, I mean, it was it was crazy for me at first.
Like I'm not gonna lie.
In the beginning, it took like I wasn't really usedto.
I was a little bit nervous, but because I've never really been like on the stage like that, uh, and strive for getting this is really, like my first, Like the opportunity to be on that stage.
Um, but I did, like, eventually adjust to it because I just kind of, like, realize that this is going to kind of be like the situation for, like, every game Fret.
I mean, everyone wants to come, uh, Tar gains and see us play.
So I just had to adjust to it, actually, kind of like, uh, brought more out of me, and it just gave me the more energy.
What was that kind of like being on the international stage for the first time.
And how are we able to deal with some of those nerves? Um I mean, it was crazy being on the national stage like that, but like I said, like, I kind of just had toe block all the noise out and just, like, focus on just kind of doing me and just doing what's best for the team and just figuring out how to win the game without worrying about who's there and worried about the crowd and all that, of course.
And now I want to move a little bit onto the coaching staff what you kind of like about the coaches on strike for greatness.
And how did they help you? I am.
I love the coach's coach.
Add in a coach, Joe, who was the head coach coach.
I was like, he's like a big brother to me.
He was, like, really fun to be around.
Like, um, all the kids loved him, and he's also a very good coach.
He's like he's the assistant coach at a Cedar Canyon.
And, um, Coach Joe, I mean, he was like, he was a really good guy.
He's He was like an energy guy.
He knew how to get the team going.
He knew how to get me going, like he would always give us, like, pregame like speeches like motivational speech.
He knew how to get somebody to like in the game.
And how did it like, get me going? He, like, definitely make me play better for sure, of course, And And what was what was your role on the team offer me? So my role on the team was basically since I came off the bench, I basically just had to bring a spark in like right away.
Um, I had to play really good defense.
I mean, I, uh just like me being confident in myself.
I I think that I was, like, the best defender on the team, like I was leading the game in steals most of the time.
Um, and just like on offense is when the blocking my way just knock down open shots.
So, yeah, just mainly defense and, uh, leading on the fast break in on the easy points and just hitting my shots.
So yeah, of course.
And you did just mention that you are You came off the bench, but you probably are.
I I guess you would have been a star on probably another travel team.
So sorry, but able to adjust our role knowing that you are technically better than a bench player.
However, you kind of have toe to deal with it.
I could definitely been a star like on another team.
I pretty much China for like, my whole life playing basketball, but like coming off the bench for strive for greatness.
I kind of think it like maybe, like, mature, more as a basketball player and ah, I just kind of improved.
Ah, it was like my humility and just like kind of doing what's best for the team and doing whatever I can tow like, make sure we win.
I mean, I think it took a lot of, like, unselfish me unselfishness for me to do that because, I mean, I just want to do what's best from my guys.
And I just did whatever it took to Lin, of course, and playing in the u ibl what were some of your favorite tournaments and events from bad Ah, season? Oh, yeah.
I mean, planning that you ibl is It was a really fun experience.
I mean, it was marks the first time ever playing in that You I be Oh, I mean, I see like all the videos and stuff on YouTube like before that I like of all like the crazy games that went on, I was like game I love I love to be like a part of this one day, So it was definitely like, ah, real fun.
But getting ah opportunity plan that you ideal this year and then I think like my favorite tournament this year was actually probably like the very 1st 1 we play.
It was in Vegas.
Um, it was like one, like all the guys kind of got together for the first time was the first time we played him.
We got to the chairmanship that tournament and way had a bad game.
We lost the Vegas elite kind of by like 19 like, 20 points.
But ah, like besides that game, I mean, we're playing really good together, building chemistry, and we all enjoyed, like, playing together.
And you just mentioned how you guys were ableto build chemistry.
How is that? Because you did You do have a pretty small it following on instagram.
Whatever you're teaming up with guys like a jungle Jackson and brawny James would have, like hundreds, thousands, millions of followers on instagram.
So how is that for you, China? I guess we'll build a friendship with these guys are, like, extremely well known.
I mean, like, for me.
I mean, I've always been a person that I don't really like.
Pay attention, and I don't really care like about all the hype, and I don't really pay attention to, like, all the followers and stuff like for me out there today.
It's always been like if you can go out the court, if you can go out on the court and prove yourself like I saw that matter because I mean, it's like if you have a 1,000,000 followers, but you can't play.
I mean, it's like you don't really mean anything compared to like if you have two followers.
But she like showing that you the best on the core every time I that means something.
So I mean, I think the day I knew like I was obviously around like a good amount of people who have a lot of followers on Instagram.
But I just told myself like if I could go on the court with them and like, prove myself every day and show them that I belong it it's not It's not gonna really matter.
And and I understand that a lot of Claritin routine.
You guys aren't all from the same state or same county.
Gardner from ah barge. Different states.
So how does proxies work? How are you guys able to get ready for the tournament's when you guys weren't really living close to each other? Yeah, so like about that.
Like the practices, Their kind of little bit all over the place, a little bit crazy schedule.
I mean, the first tournament that he played in Vegas, we actually got, ah, met up altogether at, like, this little high school gym, Like the day before we play our first game.
It kind of got, like, a feel for each other.
Like, went over a couple of plays and stuff like that, and just I introduced ourselves to each other and stuff.
Um, And then after that, like after that Vegas tournament, Um, basically, Coach Joe, he would like, set up some practices like 2 to 3 of them.
And stuff like that, and you're trying to find a date were like he could get, like, all the guy s like, come fly out or come come down to L.
A for the weekend And then basically, like when we went to like, uh, when we started planning in that you ideo like the days before games and stuff like, uh, people.
What are you kind of have, like a set up Jim for us to kind of go use for an hour or two, like, just go over stuff I'm like, yeah, yeah.
And so I guess you think about it.
I don't really know how much.
Mostly I'll be you ibl teams practice, but I'm sure some of them might my if all the kids are coming from the same area, I'm sure they're all kind of practice a little more than you guys.
Were you ever a little bit like nervous or you Did you ever kind of think you guys weren't ready due to the lack of practices? Um, I mean, not all the time.
Like sometimes, though, I mean sometimes weren't like, like, the most prepared, like mentally and, ah, we weren't like, like the best well rested and stuff.
And we, like, weren't really ready all the time coming into the game.
So yeah, I was a little bit like a concerning me sometimes, because, I mean, I've always been like a player who's been big on about, like, preparation and, like preparing for preparing well before games.
So sometimes, yeah, I mean, I would get a little bit like concerned on how he was gonna play.
Like if we didn't prepare well.
And we weren't like focused, uh, a mentally coming into the game.
I mean, like in the first stash chin in Atlanta That you RB Oh, I know that.
We went, We went undefeated and like we play.
Why not Russell Westbrook steam and, ah, I like the night before.
Like, we weren't really, like focus coming into the game.
And we don't really get like, uh, the best sleep and all that.
So we kind of came in their sluggish than, like, dead, and we we got beat pretty badly, so yeah, yeah, of course.
And I want to talk about some of those teammates now, obviously brownies.
You're younger than you. So is a jobs there, Jackson.
So what was that kind of like playing with guys that were that were playing on about playing optimal redrew.
So John Bryant, their class of 2023.
So there are one year, like, younger than us, but, um I mean, I've done the day for me.
I don't really, like bother me or any of us, because, I mean, we all knew that those two, those two guys, I mean, they're really good players.
That can play on any level.
And I mean I mean, they could definitely play like a year of I mean, they're like, they're definitely good enough.
And they just super well for a team.
And we love timing them around.
So I didn't matter, Like if.
But what their age was.
I mean, we all know that they could hope, and they could hang on like that level, Of course.
So you were never really kind of ah, questioning like, Oh, we're playing.
We're playing with a couple guys that were playing up for their age group like you might not be.
Ah, maybe mature for a different team, or was that never really thought? All right, it wasn't really I ever thought to be honest.
Yeah, all right.
And, um and I want to move on to the travel team that you were going to be playing for this season.
You're playing for the California the Cali rebels.
So what, do you like them and and why did you decide to go play for them? I mean, I love Carly rebels.
Uh, Coach John, he's the director of the program.
Um I mean, he's been really good to me.
He's been working like we're real hard for me.
And I mean, he's definitely help me with all my like college recruitment and stuff like that, which I'm like, real thing for the have him by my, uh, behind me, like supporting me and just my team.
Like, I mean, we're not, like, obviously the most height guys like, uh, none of them really have, like, for 100,000 followers and all that.
But, I mean, I'm just like, uh, I'm just thankful that like they come ready to work like, every single day in practice, and they give it their role.
And, um, we all like love each other and like we bond really well, well, with each other for sure.
And the California rebels, they are in the Adidas ball.
It So you're not moving from E Y.
B l two data that other circuit.
What do you What were you looking forward to about about the adidas circuit? I mean, nothing really.
The, uh, like nothing really changes.
I know, like competition still gonna be super high.
It's just it's just a different circus Adidas instead of the Nike.
But I'm just ready to like.
I mean, I don't think we're gonna have, like, a circuit this year.
Obviously didn't like the pandemic.
But especially for like, next year, I'm gonna keep playing with, um, uh, year after, um, I just can't wait toe, get out there on, like, the circuit and just play against those other good teams and, uh, go to battle every day with my guys, so yeah.
So now I want to move on to, um I want to talk about, I guess, high school.
I know you were playing for for modern day in the beginning.
I mean, that's that's pretty much like a cow for probably even a nationwide powerhouse.
So what was it like playing at modern day your freshman year? Yeah.
I mean, yeah, they were definitely a powerhouse.
Definitely a big name school.
And I mean, always coming there.
Obviously, as the incoming freshman, I was 14 years old, like I was really young.
I was I was the youngest on the team, so well, we definitely can be like, a little bit of, ah, intimidating, like, fact there at first.
But, I mean, I just came out there and like, try to compete every day and I mean, I got to compete against those.
Really? Ah, like high level players that were ranged in all that.
So I got toe get better against them every single day in practice.
And I mean, sometimes, like, even during the season.
And I actually got to, like, contribute minutes like here and there.
Just as a freshman.
I was like, the only one, so I was thankful for the opportunity to Yeah, you said the word intimidating.
I mean, it is very scary.
I come just coming up.
Was that freshman? So what was that, like, birth practice Long for you either from beyond.
How about how we're gonna be able to handle that? Oh, yeah. I mean, definitely.
First practice is definitely a little bit.
I'm not gonna lie on me.
I definitely didn't want to, like, mess up or do something bad.
I mean, because you like you like the new kid on the block, your like your freshman, And I mean, compared to, like, all my EU practices, I was always like the man and I was like, the best player.
So it's like it's a different feeling, Because now you kind of got a, uh, just, like, do what you like.
Do what you can do, Like, do what the coach is tell you to do.
And I mean, just, like, pretty much for me.
I just have to come in there and work hard every single day and just, uh, do what the coach told me to do and just learn as much as possible.
So yeah, definitely.
No, actually, I forgot to ask this question.
It is the school I was passing by.
It's called it's called Modern Day right now.
Mattered a modern.
All right, good, good.
Exact. That would have been a little bit embarrassing.
Well, anyways, you now you're not playing at ah J Serra High school.
So what led Utah make that decision to make that move? Yes.
I mean, J Sarah.
I mean, obviously there also mature knee league. They're in the same league.
Uh, that marred a plays in, and it's a really tough leads problem.
It's the best league in California, and I've always liked known about Jason Air.
Like since I was thinking about, like, what high school was gonna go to coming into my freshman year, and I've always liked Look, the school I've loved their program and I mean, it just seemed like a smarter decision and a better opportunity for me because I going into my sop****re year like I wanted to feel like I have a bigger role and I can contribute more to my team.
And, um, I mean, Jason there was also, like, eight minutes away from my house, so it was like it worked out a lot better.
I mean, modern day was like a 35 minute, 40 minute drive for me every single morning.
So it was really hard art scheduling me.
And it's just my head.
The assistant head at Ah J sir, Coach Jesse on me not play for him since I was in middle school and I've always loved playing for him.
He always liked push me.
He worked me out and he believed in me.
So I was just like it would be also really fun.
Toe go play for my old coach there.
And when I got there is like I was welcomed in right away with, like, open arms, like a real family environment there, and I just I love the right away.
Just competing, like on the court with those guys.
And also hanging with them, like off the core is really fun.
Now, you still you still do have a couple of years of, ah, high school basketball left.
But you've played with a lot of really, really talented guys.
Give me a few teammates, but what kind of help to you? Ah, remote basketball player.
So two teammates actually, like I play with them a J Sierra this year.
Um uh, my teammate Alpha Chip Bombay.
He's a sop****re.
He's my She transferred as well into J.
Sarah this year and, ah, like I transferred there, kind of like before him.
He kind of came, like, two months after, but like, um, right when he got there, like, we kind of just clicked right off the bat, but like an instant friendship.
And I mean, he's like he's if he's very athletic, is his balances and saying like, you can do all types of crazy dunk.
So, like I, we team up all the time and practice and just like building that chemistry right away, like during lives to him, I knew where he was gonna be all the time and just knew that using to go like, throw down every single time he got in there Israel from playing with him and then also, uh, Martinez.
I don't know if you know who you but he's He's also like a pretty higher ranked player in the nation.
He graduated this year that he's going to Utah, but he kind of, like, welcome me right away, And he was like a big brother to me.
Kind of like this kind of mentored me and showed me the way.
And ah, he just he pushed me every single day and practice got me better.
And but he also like, took me Ah took me in like and just try to help me and, uh, yeah, show me, Show me the way Basically, yeah, that's awesome.
And how your school season go for you this year My hospital season.
It went pretty good for the most part.
I mean, it kind of sucked because in the beginning of the year, how toe I have to say I was ineligible for until, like, December 30th.
Um, so I missed like some pretty big game that I love Just, like wanted to play and so bad, but right when I, uh, can't like right When I came back from sitting on, I was just I was ready right away to, like, make a statement and, like, come in and prove myself, Um, which I did and I mean, I had some big games, like as a sop****re, especially attorney league.
We played Ah s Sam away at their place, and I had a super big game and helped us pull out that window was ah, close when we only beat them by five points.
And I was like it was a really tough environment because they have, like, a really loud crowd.
Then I mean, they were heckling me, like every time I went to the free throw line and it was just I was proud to like get that win there.
Yeah, I'm just wondering.
I don't know if you let me ask you this, but why? Why were you want way said again you could have Oh, my fault could hear me now.
I don't know if I don't know if you mind me asking this, but why were you on the palpable? Ineligible all because so basically so transferred.
And I didn't move like I didn't move address addresses, like into another house.
Um, I had to sit.
I mean, unless I were toe move to a different like, uh, address.
Then I could have played right off the bed right off the bat, but I didn't.
So you have to sit.
Yeah, I feel like California camp has those, like, weird rules.
And I know you guys can't really compete for a guy commercial championship.
It is what it is.
Now, I was able to watch some of your film off of max preps.
And you you really sparked my eye right from the bat and something that I know what I found really interesting was, ah, defensive possession against you and your former teammate Devin ask you.
So what was that like? And what was going through your mind Burning one of the nation's top recruits? Yeah.
I mean, for me, I mean, first, I was like, I just want to say it like whenever, Like, I play in a game where I come into a game like my mindset is always the same.
And my approach is always the same.
Like, no matter if I'm going up against my just average player or like top 10 playing the country like I'm always gonna come out, you my hardest.
I'm always gonna compete at the highest level.
But, I mean, I think in that moment of the game, there's, like, 15 seconds left on like the first quarter and like, he was just trying to, like, try and set about for the last play of the quarter.
And he was kind of like his by the like, the sideline on the left side.
But he was like, near half court.
He was pretty high up and he was trying like a set set set into a ball screen, talking the middle.
I just I just chyna forcing the Ghost Island.
I wasn't trying to have a come back to the middle.
I see my trying to set up for a cross over, so I just kind of I put my hand in my deflected the ball, But since we're close to this island, the boats kind of rolling like out, Uh, just looking like it was going to go out of balance, but I kind of just got too real fast and I saved it right before and I just started taking it down the cooler.
And I just I heard like, the to modern day big men and they were chasing me down.
Pretty hardly wanted to block me, but I was too, like a head of steam.
And I put the layup in tow like finish out the quarter.
So yeah, yeah, I mean, I like I'll be like, all honesty When I watch that play like my mind is blown like I was like, I was like, This guy's especially like elite for doing that Because if I was, if I have to be if I was even guarding you like my legs would be like shaking.
Really? Oh, man, I'm about getting my angles broke.
Why was that was really impressive me to watch that because he he's even older than you.
Two is obviously the same class.
He's older, bigger.
You were just kind of evil.
That was like, I'm going to be defense extremely impressed.
Thank you. Thank you.
Now I want to talk about some of those some of those camps you've gone to.
What basket camp has been your favorite, um, definitely camps.
Uh, I've been my favorite.
The Pangos camps around by Dean O's.
Um I mean, they're always, like, great events.
I mean, a lot of the top players come to them and the they all playing them.
So it's, like, fun to be around.
Those guys compete with them and against them and ah, yeah, it was like the camp that I went to most recently was the pain goes as well as, like, the class of 2022 top 20 like, showcase game.
Um, and I actually played really well in that.
And I was just You have fun.
Like like I said, being around those other top level guys and just being a little like a show.
My show, My skill, uh, playing against them.
Yeah, of course.
So that was I know you posted, like, a mix tape or something on your instagram recently.
It was like you and black jersey that was on Pangos camping.

So she wanted filled with that.
Yeah, All right.
So you could maybe out out about that camp a little bit more on how are able to get invited from the competition stuff like that.
I mean, I go I go to penguins camps almost every year.
I mean, I'm no Dean knows pretty well, and he always liked invites me toe his camps and stuff like that, and yeah, I mean, I've always done like, uh, pretty well in them, for the most part.
I mean, last year I went to, ah, freshman sop****re camp that they have so psycho mix of all like the top freshman, uh, in the country and top sop****res in the country.
So, yeah, I mean, I've been going to them for, like, like, two years almost now, so yeah.
Yeah, it sounds awesome.
So I kind of want to talk more about your your recruiting process, though.
What's what's that like for you? What? What schools are looking at you.
What's all about? Yes.
I mean, their recruitment process.
It's been pretty crazy.
It's obviously been like a blessing for me on June 15th which was like the official day that colleges could reach out 2022 class.

And, um then I'll probably after that, I'll either have weight listening.
Um, and then after that, I'll do like I've been doing a lot of sand workouts for, like the past two weeks, and that's really been helping me on my game and just, like, been allowing me to be more explosive on the court, be quicker and speed more.
So you, of course.
And I want to talk about your the way you play basketball.
They're looking out upon it by coming into the season.
So yes, so one thing I definitely coming into this year is extending my range like being with shoot from obviously the three point line.
But even like beyond that, Because, I mean, I want to be a comfortable from like shooting like anywhere on the court.
And another thing is just being like, uh, like faster, more explosives, like a lot more laterally Quick on.
That's what, like, I've been doing the same workout before because I just I feel like I can get faster in the open court and just being more explosive and being able to like blow by my two founders.
So you, of course, and what? One thing for sure, it's always been defense.
I love defense and just like the feeling of being really like shuts shut someone down like the whole game.
And I mean, just like the pride of me.
Like if someone scores me out, it's like it's real frustrating.
I hate when people scrawny, so it's just like I know, like, just defense alone.
It can take you like, uh, it could take you a lot of places.
I mean, you got some players in the league that get paid a bunch of money just to play defense like that Beverly and all those guys.
And so I mean, just knowing that if I could just always keep just always continue.
Just do that to my best ability.
Is that I mean, it's gonna gonna set me up.
