I don’t have time to sit down and airbush my lumps and bumps. I don’t want to either, because they’re all a part of my life and what I’ve been through and who I am.
I’m a human, we’re going to go through hard times and hard periods of our life, it’s not going to be an easy ride all the time. That’s what we forget. On social media, it seems that way that living are living these idyllic lives and it’s not. There’s going to be bumps in the road, that’s life.
That comes with playing basketball, just nicks and bumps and things like that.

I would love it if people could look at chubby folks with all of our curves, bumps and ridges and just say ‘She’s beautiful’ just like that. You don’t have to get on a treadmill as long as your blood pressure is under control and you eat healthy, God bless.

Basketball players want contact to get a foul called. Slaps on the wrist and bumps on the shoulder are big time to them, and they don’t like that. In football, you get that all the time. The whole mental makeup is different.

I prefer 100 per cent cotton Ts. They are kinder to lumps and bumps than figure-hugging stretchy Lycra ones and feel nicer against the skin. Extra-long-sleeved T-shirts are a lifesaver for me. I wear them either underneath a shirt with the sleeve pulled out of the cuff, or underneath gypsy tops, tunic tops and waistcoats.

Speed bumps, I was thinking, you know, you’re driving along, everything’s OK, and then there’s a speed bump to go, ‘Slow down.’ Go over it real slowly, and you hit the pedal, and you keep going, and I just thought it was kind of a nice metaphor for life.
My dad has kind of been the standard for me, he played 16 years in the league, and since I’ve been in the league, every year that I go through and deal with the scratches, the bumps and bruises, just the grind that it is to go through one NBA season.
