Garrett Temple: “There’s no question that other players resented me. No question, especially since my dad was the coach of my AAU team. But he made it clear that the best man would play. I actually had one year, I think I was 11 years old, and I wasn’t in the rotation for a whole summer. And it wasn’t my dad just trying to get on me the most, it’s because I wasn’t good enough. That helped a bit because the other players saw he’d always play the best guys, even if it meant benching his son. But, yeah, there were guys who said, ‘How does he get to go to ABCD Camp instead of me? I heard, ‘He’s only getting to go to LSU because his dad was the first black player and his brother just went there.’ I definitely heard that kind of talk and knew those feelings were going around. That motivated me even more. I heard pundits say things like, ‘He’s not even good enough to play college basketball. He’s only getting this chance because of his father and brother.’ Really?
