“I feel like I’m ready now, but I’m not in shape. I can go out there and I can give the team 10 minutes. I want to be productive out there. I don’t want to limp or drag behind because of my cardio. That would be hurting the team. I don’t want to be selfish and go out there and not be able to go up and down every possession and give it all I got. That’s what I can’t do right now.”
