Coach Who?

23 Apr 2024

He has showcased his basketball skills on a professional level around the world including the US, Dubai, Hong Kong & Argentina. In Australia, he's played for the Blackburn Vikings, Dandenong Rangers, & the Nunawading Specters.

He embodies a calm demeanour. And his philosophy aligns with this approach — your basketball journey is as a marathon not a sprint. Progress takes time and that every step forward, no matter how small, is a significant part of the journey.

If you guessed Coach Ray, you’re correct.

Lebron James holds the spot as my favourite player, as he gets everyone involved. His inclusive nature elevates the performance of his entire team, making him a true leader both on and off the court. He embodies the values of team play and sportsmanship.

Oatmeal for breakfast. Chips for cheat meals.

Finally, what is your message to all Kingston ballers?

Look at your basketball journey as a marathon not a sprint. Continuously hone your skills, push yourself daily, and focus on your goals. Just like in basketball and life, success stems from commitment, perseverance, and a positive mindset. Embrace challenges and learn from your mistakes.
