A lot has been made of my frustrations on the court lately. I think if I’m not frustrated when I’m in foul trouble, then I don’t know how I should act. People tell me to play through it, but if I’m in foul trouble, I’m not playing. So that myth goes out the window. Also people have told me that it’s normal because I’m a rookie, but I try to have an aggressive mentality because I don’t want to play like a rookie. Obviously I want to be great, so I’m going to go through these rocky roads in my career. I’m trying to adapt and learn how to play defense differently, which might mean I can’t be as aggressive as I want. But I still want to put my stamp on the game. When I play, I’m not going to let guys push me around. I’m willing to take a foul for the team. I may get upset when I’m not playing due to foul trouble, but I have faith in my team to maintain the energy I bring even when I’m off the court.
