"Gosh, she says I look over in the window pastor the neon lights of the city of commerce meld together like a time lapse photograph. Yeah. I see. It was a long story she nods and holds my eyes with hers. I wonder what you were like before. I turn to the dark road ahead. White dashes flickering as we drive across them me too. I say then I glanced over at her sorry. That was a little melodramatic. I'm different now. But I'm not that different. Like, I'll always be a bit of a warrior and all always have a hard time, relaxing. But getting hurt like that. It changed me made me see things differently she nods, and I look back at the road.

I say, I'm not sure I've ever told that story that way before how can you tell story a different way? Well, sometimes I talk about how the explosion of my kidney and spleen was a good reminder that I'd lost sight of what I cared about in basketball, which is true, by the way. And sometimes I talk about how without the injury. I don't think I would have connected with writing like, I did which is also true when I was playing for the sons, that's when I got asked to write for their website, which led to the book deal, which led to me being here in LA. Why did you tell it to me this way? The answer is simple because with the right person. It's not about being entertaining or funny or Geraldo telling the story in a simple way. So there's a cause and effect easy to process bang. I got her Bank. I was different with the right person. It's enough to let the story unwind to let them come to their own conclusions.

"Hundred dollars basketball agents, get a healthy ten percent of European contracts. I know I'm an idiot. I said as I answered who said that you assumed you might be. But luckily, you have the best agent in the world. Are you sitting down Paul hold on? I said I pulled open the sliding glass door and flopped into one of the green chairs on the deck that hangs over the driveway. Where I I learned how to shoot a basketball. I've learned over the years that when people tell you to sit down for a phone call. You should listen I rocked back in told my agent. I was ready staring up at all the stars. That are available for viewing at my parents house. Tomorrow. The Phoenix Suns are trading away three players for Jim Jackson been they're going to sign you what the sons they're trading three players and they want to sign me. News will hit tomorrow you'll fly out the day after. If my agent had been on the deck with me, he would have seen me shaking my head. I mean, if it hadn't been so dark, partly at the absurdity of my life, but mostly because while he didn't know it. I wasn't sure I wanted to agree to the deal to go to Phoenix on a ten day contract and try to prove myself again worrying about every jump shot, and what it meant for my future. Just didn't really saw. Oh in Paul. Here's the best part. I got them to sign you to the end of the year with a team option for next year. How's that you heard me you're in the NBA again? And this time you're gonna stay for a while. When my agent was finished convincing me that he wasn't joking. He went over the particulars. And then swore me to radio silence with anyone. But my parents when I went back inside those parents looked up from the biggest loser with similarly quizzical expressions on their faces. I looked down at my phone, then I looked up at them. Apparently, the Phoenix Suns are going to sign me for the rest of the year. My parents reaction was emblematic of their response to most of the news. I ever gave them about my basketball career, my dad's stuck out his bottom lip and nodded. My mom said. Like, I just told her I'd gotten an a on a math test. Yeah. I said, I think so. The trade happened. The next day I flew to Phoenix, by way of Memphis the day after that signing a contract with the sons for the rest of the season a season that ended in the Western Conference finals when the sun's lost to the San Antonio Spurs after shooting guard, Joe Johnson broke his face in a freak accident involving the arena floor. I rarely played on the team's historic run. Which would have been disconcerting to the old version of me. But the new me didn't much care. I learned some lessons on a plane in a hospital bed and on the steps of Russia. I was happy with what I've found. An NBA all star team just a place where everyday people were happy to see me. One of those people was an assistant coach who called me into his office one day after practice. He pulled out a digital camera and showed me a picture he'd taken it was of the note I've written on the locker rooms dry erase board. When I've been cut back in the fall when I saw that he said, I had a feeling you'd be back..

Sure enough, but it turned out that Paul Shirley was the extent of his English aptitude using a variety of creative hand motions. The man made it clear that we are going to get my bags and take them to his car. So he could drive me across Moscow to be airport where I would connect. Because. What he didn't mention the car in question had floorboard so rotten that by the time we arrived at Sheremetevo airport. Two hours later my bags and their contents would be soaked with the melted. Snow that had worked its way into what was once dry space for luggage. Inside the other airport. The man handed me the Russian equivalent of fifty dollars can explain with his hands. That my flight wasn't until ten pm. It was currently ten AM in that. I would have to pay the money to someone for my luggage. I wasn't overjoyed to have a twelve hour layover in an airport filled with people who looked like they'd been cast off from the Cantina scene. As far as I could tell there was nothing to keep the angry looking socks and Tajiks from walking off with my bags security was not tight. But I couldn't help the next flight to Kansas City. So I waved goodbye smelly man and gamely found a spot on a bench where I laid out on the floor of the books. I brought with me there pages had taken the brunt of the snow's abuse.

Wore the same expression, you see on death row inmates who've just been informed that the requests they've put in for their last meals have been summarily ignored. We landed in Kazakhstan at midnight this time I was met by someone a little more cheery teams general manager who apologized for the long day. I didn't do it in joked about Kazan's location, so far from Moscow, then I was bundled into the back of a windowless van and we set out for the city. The ride was bumpy in unsettling, and I was terrified the whole time. This turned out to be not only a pretty good description of the thirty minute trip from the airport to the hotel. But also my next two months in Russia. The temperature rarely rose above freezing no-one smiled. I couldn't come to terms with the harshness of the Russian language, which whenever it hit. My ears made me think someone was very angry with me. The next two months felt like six when they were over. It was time to decide whether I would stay for the remainder of the year. If I said, yes, I would be in Kazakhstan until may or June and everyone said springtime in Kazan was far better than wintertime in Kazakhstan. I would also make two hundred thousand dollars effectively doubling my career take as a basketball player and giving me some.

"I'd made my third NBA team and the best one yet. This was the Phoenix Suns of daughter Meyer, Shawn Marion and Nash who would be named the NBA's most valuable player well leading the Suns to a sixty two and twenty regular season record tops in the NBA Kate Hudson and come back to see me. And this time she was carrying flowers. Nothing. Could stop me. Now. Nothing but general manager Bryan Colangelo who asked to see me after the regular seasons. I practice one day before my debut as a Phoenix people'd up a chair across from the one that sat in front of my locker and told me the team had just gotten word that the Memphis grizzlies were going to buy out the contract of Bo outlaw who'd been a fan favourite in one of his previous jobs in Phoenix. The sons were going to have to release me. So they could sign out law whom the grizzlies were so anxious to have not play for their team that they were willing to pay him a couple of million dollars. I was twenty three the first time. I was cut by an NBA team. I've gone to training camp with the defending world champion, Los Angeles, Lakers. Phil Jackson, Shaquille O'Neal Kobe Brian at first I'd been overmatched anytime I checked in. But I made quick progress. I understood the triangle offense almost instinctively I was more than anyone thought I got along with shack. And so by the third week of training camp. I was starting to dream big. Maybe I'd make the team after all. The call came to my hotel room near the Lakers training facility. There's always a hotel room near the training facility. The coaches wanted to see me when I was finished being released. I went back to the hotel room and fell onto my bed. Crying the desperate cries of someone who's world has just crashed in around him. I expected something similar to happen when I was cut by the sons so much so that I could feel myself girding against Pierce. His cO Angelo's words, can those tears didn't come being cut wasn't such a big deal. Because at least I could walk and smell. I shook Colangelo hand and told him I appreciate the opportunity, but not like an asshole, I really had appreciated the opportunity, and I wrote a long note to the team on the locker rooms dry array sports, telling them, I was happy. I'd gotten to spend some time with them. And that Sure. I was sure good things in store for them. Pack my bags and went back to Kansas City where after three weeks my agent called to tell me that a team in Russia wanted me to come play for them. The Russian team was willing to sign me to a month to month contract. If I didn't like Russia, I could leave after one month the deal would be the same after the second month. Oh, and by the way, we're going to pay me forty thousand dollars for each of those months. It was my fourth year as a professional basketball player and already made enough money to pay off half the mortgage on my house in Kansas City was pretty fantastic I thought, but one cannot play basketball forever. The nature of tendons, ligaments is that they have finite. Life spans. So on Thanksgiving Day, I left for Kazan Russia..

"I wasn't sure what I was going to do with my newfound outlook until Scott Wittman called Weltman had been my coach with the Kansas City knights the team for which I'd played before being called up by the bulls. He also wants been a sharpshooter for the Boston Celtics. And when I told him that I couldn't run or jump a light went on in his head. Meet me at the gym next week. He said, but I can't do anything. I said trust me, Paul. And so I spent the next six weeks of my life. Revamping the way I shot in the way, I thought about life changes were long overdue one year before Austin Crozier's need destroyed some of my internal organs. I've lost the use of my right arm after Mangla the break, yo plexus nerve and that arm by slamming my neck into a teammate's chest during a practice in Spain. I'd always been a reasonably good shooter. But since the nerve injury, my form the way, I shot had become a rube Goldberg machine all compensations and tricks to keep anyone. Knowing that I barely knew what I was doing anymore. We started small me in front of the basket. No more than two feet away. Weltman talking through the principles of shooting. He'd learned as a pro as my body healed. We moved further and further away, my form stayed the same wedman's voice was always there. Telling me to bend, my knees to shoot using the force generated by my legs to breathe by the end of the summer. I almost couldn't miss this, though, wasn't entirely because mechanics Weltman had me thinking about basketball differently. I got interested in meditation and visualization reading a book called the inner game of tennis. The point of which is to remind us that the cognitive side of our brain is often. Our enemy all the instinctive side is usually our friend. In August after my injury. A doctor told me the pocket of blood that had once been the size of a football had shrunk to something fist-sized enough progress that I could start running. Then my agent called the Phoenix Suns had invited me to training camp. My fourth such inviting for years once again, I would be fighting for a roster spot on an unguaranteed contract. Once again, the odds would be stacked aggressively against me, but I can tell on my first day in camp that something was different. The first time I caught the ball on a pass from Steve Nash. I took a shot without a second thought it's wash through the net. The next time down the court same result. I played in Phoenix as well as I'd ever played rarely missing the long jump shots that made Nash look for me when we ended up on the same team. I survived the first round of cuts, and then the second and then opening day arrived and glory glory. Hallelujah. I'm still on the Suns roster. The first time I've been on an NBA team in the season started done it. Sure. It had been a hellish year a hellish two years. In fact, if you counted that injury to the nerve in my arm, but that misery was all behind me..

"Cowards of us all also sleep yet pain and dilated that is after I slid into unconsciousness at three thirty in the morning. Ted called my parents at home, they'd gone that evening with friends to watch our game against the Pacers at a sports bar in Topeka when I'd gone down. They've wondered by the way I'd fallen if something serious had happened and win Ted roused my mother from bed. She said she wasn't surprised to be hearing from him. She was though surprised by the tone of Ted's voice. And when she got off the phone. She bought a ticket for a flight to Chicago the next morning because when your children are homesick at SCI camp, you leave them there. But when you're children have just had two of their internal organs bladder you fly to them immediately. I spent the next nine days in the hospital five of those in the step down unit, which is where they put you. If you're not quite wrecked enough for intensive care. My mother was by my side for most of it. In a good thing too. I was so adult by painkillers. I couldn't come up with an answer win during half hearted efforts across word. She said. Word for man's best friend starts with gene over the course of my stay. There were many frantic consultations, and as it became clear that I was in less and less danger, many less frantic ones when one of our doctors found out that my mother was a nurse and that I was starting to comprehend words longer than one suitable. He took us on a guided tour of the scan that told my story the huge pocket of blood forced my spleen in left kidney into positions like he'd never seen before. I wasn't going to be playing basketball anytime soon. Or running or lifting weights or staying up right for any amount of time longer than fifteen minutes. I was going to get to keep my spleen and kidney and leave the hospital. The first sensations to hit me were smells after a week and a half away from the world my nose had gotten used to realty. And now an olfactory onslaught it was springtime in Chicago. So trees were budding and blooming shooting pollen into the air the ground was still wet from winter. So there was Pete in the cocktail to go put it all in turning to smile up at my mom who was pushing the wheelchair. I was in. She said it, smells, so good. The rest of my senses weren't far behind. I love the sights and the sounds to the sun glinting off the hood of a car shuffle of feed people walked past me. It was if you'll pardon the descent into cliche like being born again. My mother spent the next two weeks in the room above me at the residents in the doctor had been right? I couldn't stay upright for more than fifteen minutes, nor could I make it up. A flight of stairs. Thanks to all the blood. I'd lost. My hemoglobin was hovering around not enough. And I felt most of the time like someone suffering from extreme altitude sickness. I didn't really care though. I hadn't been wrong about the fear. I noticed in Ted's is on the plane. He'd spent several years as a trainer for the San Francisco forty Niners and had seen a couple of ruptured spleens in his football days. He knew they could go quickly from bad to really bad. And that putting me on the plane hadn't in retrospect bene-, very good idea. In other words, he'd been afraid I might die. He wasn't the only one. I wouldn't have been able to articulate it at the time. But as we've been flying across the midwest, I've known on some level that something was terribly wrong. With me that I might be dying. Thanks to the pain at didn't care if I did. None of this though was something I could express with any coherence what I did know was that. I couldn't figure out why in the hell the team doctor kept telling me I'd be able to play again after three months, look pal. I wanted to say for now, let's just enjoy walking and smelling. The bull season ended with almost no fanfare in pretty soon. I was back in Kansas City. The bulls had an option on my contract. But again, let's just enjoy walking. And smelly..

"For example, the player I'd noticed on the wing opposite from me Austin Crozier who was finishing up along exorbitant contract. He'd signed with the Pacers. After a strangely productive playoff run. Several years before Crozier had caught the ball in play with details aren't important in had an unimpeded path to the basket. I knew I could pretend to hadn't noticed him. It wasn't my fault. He was open after all. But I also knew that such luxuries are only available to players on five year contracts. The fate of my career it was tied to making the right decision in situations. Like, these I dragged my tired, but enthusiastic body across the lane found a position between Crozier's body in the basket, and stuck up my hands hoping I'd arrived in time to take charge. One of those fouls. See in basketball wherein defender falls to the ground and the referee points accusingly at the guy who ran into him as Crozier rose toward the basket. His knees slammed into the left side of my body. And I hit the floor like a sack of potatoes that's fallen off the back of an Idaho truck like someone who's taking charge. Should it was a picture? Perfect effort play exactly the sort of thing. I'd been put on the court to do. There was one problem. I hadn't gone down only because I wanted to draw foul on Crozier. I was hurt. I ran through the possibilities. Like, Terminator scanning hardware knocked down. Now. I can breathe mostly anyway. Did you know that wasn't it? Although it had been a close call. No, no. And no, I was processing all of this just fine while my body continued its analysis, I wriggled towards the baseline trying to get out of the way so Crozier could shoot his free throw in the game. Could go on. I wanted skies in the coaching staff to remember the job done on our test. Not the time I'd cracked a rib or whatever this was at the end of my tour of duty the bulls head athletic trainer. Ted was that my side before I stopped my weird imitation of an earthworm in a drying puddle. What's wrong? He asked kneeling next to me under the basket down that way, I said waving toward my midsection, my CPU still hadn't come up with a satisfactory explanation. Ted in is assistant pulled me off the floor. I hobbled to the Pacers on site. X Ray machine where it was determined that I hadn't broken any ribs. This was terrible news. My midsection felt like someone. Had worked it over with a ball p hammer, and it was only a bruise by the time. I was done in the miniature of medical facility inside the Pacers can Saco field house the game. Didn't I rejoined my teammates on the way to the locker room where I showered feeling queasy and dizzy, Ted took my blood pressure twice. And I let him not really asking why I was concentrating on breathing without making my side hurt too much when everyone was cleaned up. We got on the bus bound for the airport. NBA teams use chartered plane. So they are free to fly home or to the next city immediately after the game and also because chartered planes are really nice in professional basketball players are spoiled in this case, we were headed home back to Chicago where sweet relief awaited in the form of my room at the residence in across the parking lot from the.

"Maybe it's for the person you're going on the date with whatever the case it's easy to sign up. And there's no real risk because you only been money if you love what you get. And as I mentioned, it's easy. To send stuff back. Okay. Let's get back to the story. Thirteen rupture. When I signed a ten day contract with the Chicago Bulls. I had one goal I wanted to score the year before and my first stint as a bona fide member of the National Basketball Association. I've played five minutes in two games with the Atlanta Hawks, but I hadn't made a single basket even wellbeing remarkably enthusiastic in my efforts to do. So in those five minutes I put up five shots. I was more than a little relief. Then when the nineteen foot jump shot I've cast up a few minutes into my first game as a bowl found the bottom of north of the United Center. Three days before I've been in the American Basketball Association playing for the Kansas City knights to the tune of seven hundred dollars a week and bus rides from Fresno to Tijuana now was scoring points inside the former home with Michael Jordan. The only black Mark against my shot was the team that came for you could say the bulls were pretty awful that season. But saying the bulls were pretty awful that season would be like saying Marianas trench is pretty deep. It doesn't exactly capture. The essence of the thing. The bowls have been ruined by youth movement that had put it stock in the wrong youths and the team was tilting and weaving its way through the end of the season like an alcoholic whose habits of finally caught up with him. It was a level of dysfunction that didn't bother me one with. I knew the situation was perfect for me. I'd always shine in chaotic basketball environments, a new head coach, Scott, Scott was the sorta Koshi would probably be impressed, by the way, I played basketball which revolved largely around a willingness to throw my body into almost any fray with little regard for the fact that I was almost always physically overmatched in that fray case in point my new teams last practice before a game against the Indiana Pacers one week after my first NBA points unhappy with the effort put forth by some of the bulls youngest, and is paid employees skylines into the day with four straight scrimmages during each I moved further and further up the depth chart aware that as long as I didn't quit. I would look better than my competition. When the last of the days scrimmages ended an assistant coach pulled me aside, you're going to play a lot. The pacers. He said it was as Kate Hudson character in almost famous as all happening. Sure enough. I was quick into the proceedings in Indianapolis checking in soon after one of the youths did something silly in the first quarter during a subsequent time out. I'd heard the same assistant coach till Schuyler quote doing a hell of a job on our test. So he might want to again, quote, leave me in for a while. Most of the time NBA coaches leave their players in games for eight or nine minutes shifts. It's rare even for regular rotation guys. Play more than twelve minutes in a row, which explains why I was surprised to discover the next time. I looked up at the scoreboard that hung over the Indiana Pacers court that there were five minutes left in the game. I played the previous nineteen minutes was used to playing in minor league games during which I didn't have to try nearly so hard. So I was exhausted. But I knew that my exhaustion wasn't important. What was important was that? I finished the game. I didn't have to lead my new team to a win in the process, especially because that would have been impossible, but with us being down by thirty points. All I had to do was get to the end. And this might turn out to be the sort of game that bolted me into scales regular rotation for good. And who knew what might come from that the NBA is full of guys who were in the right place at the right time and ended up in the league ten years..
