The 31-year-old mentioned the NBA several times in his opening remarks and outlined how he sees a stint in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) as a route back to his beloved NBA. “I dreamed of playing in the NBA since I was a child,” said the former Toronto Raptor. “Although there is no NBA contract this year, I had invitations from many other leagues, and though my agent told me the fastest route back to the NBA was to play in Europe, I told myself years ago that I would definitely play in the CBA.”
