CJ McCollum totally at peace

For the first time in more than six weeks, CJ McCollum was back in the Trail Blazers lineup Monday. As he scored 16 points in 28 minutes during the Blazers’ 98-88 win in Orlando, McCollum looked like the same player he has been throughout his illustrious nine-year career — silky jumper, stop-and-go pace, crafty moves. But inside his head and heart, he said, it was different. “I think this is probably the most happy and at peace I’ve ever been in my life,” McCollum said.
“I’m just in a space that probably only fathers can relate to,” McCollum said. “Where you just really feel at peace and you have a great understanding of what is important to you. … I have a purpose. I’ve always had a purpose before, but now I really, truly have a real purpose in my life, which is to be a good man and try to raise my son to the best of my abilities. And that’s what brings me the most joy. The game is great. And I’ll play great some nights, I won’t play great some nights, but the consistency will be in my household.”
