When I asked Weems about his initial thoughts on Messina, these were the first words that came out of his mouth, “Man, a great teacher.” “He taught me a lot, especially about the pace of the game. You know, a lot of young players, they come in and everything is fast, fast, fast. He just taught me to slow my pace down and ‘think’ the game, instead of just going out there and trying to be athletic more than anybody. So, really, just slowing my game down.”
For that, Weems is grateful. He knows how fleeting an NBA chance can be after his first chance lasted three seasons. Weems took the Suns’ offer with a second-year $2.94 team option even though he had a guaranteed two-year, $6 million offer in Barcelona. “I’m ready,” Weems said from Cabo San Lucas, where relatives and friends celebrated with him when he got the news while riding four-wheelers on the beach. “I left a lot of money on the table. Basketball players, we really don’t like to leave too much money on the table so I’m ready. This is the one thing I’ve been waiting on. It’s finally here. I’m more than well-prepared.”
