Just being able to adjust to different defenses, Daylight seems to come few and far between, but when you do get it — being able to take advantage and attack when defenses slip up. That’s been the biggest thing as the years have gone on.
The former unanimous MVP’s ultimate accolade is when defenders tell him to slow down.
The compliment I love is when guys tell me to stop running around so much when they’re defending me. That’s a testament to being in great shape and being able to play at that level for however long I’m out there.
