“It was a long journey to now,” Balkman said. “It’s a blessing I’m here. That [the choking incident] is in the past. I’m looking forward. It’s a step for me to be here now. Whatever happened, happened. I’m moving on.” And moments like that can impact a player for a long time, Balkman knows. “It was an incident,” he said. “Everybody knew about it. But it didn’t stop me from what I knew what I was trying to do. I could have easily said it was going to hurt my whole career. But I turned a lot of things into positives. If I had to go to six or seven places to play basketball and show everybody I’m still in it, that’s what I would have done. “I went to three places to play as much basketball as I could.”

Asked for his first thoughts on the dreadlocked, multi-tattooed former first-round draft pick of the New York Knicks, coach Rick Carlisle said: “My first thoughts? I like his hairdo. And I like his tattoos a lot. There’s a lot of storytelling going on there. “You know he’s got a high pain tolerance if he’s got tattoos on his eyelids. All that stuff impresses me before we even start talking about his game. That’s why I liked [DeShawn] Stevenson.”
