The Athletic: What do you make of the expectations about having to come in and fill the shoes of Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute, who helped the Rockets achieve a top-defense ranking? James Ennis: I have a chip on my shoulder. I have a lot to prove. So this year, coming in, I’m just really focused on just being the player I can be and being someone Coach can put in at anytime and help. I’m always hard on myself so I’m really not going there and thinking ‘I gotta do what he does, I gotta do what he does’. I’m gonna go in there and do what I do and play my game.
Joel Embiid: When I was 16, Luc Mbah a Moute invited me to come to the basketball camp that he puts on every summer in Cameroon, and the only reason was because I was like 6 foot 10. I was so nervous that I didn’t even show up the first day. The second day, I showed up, they put me in the game and I dunked on somebody. I think I was so scared that my adrenaline took over or something. Straight away, first game. And I mean — not just dunked. Dunked on somebody. I was like, OH SHIT. I mean, I was still terrible, but it was enough. They could see something in me. I got a spot at the Basketball Without Borders camp in South Africa. Two months later, I was on a plane to Florida to go to high school in America.
