After some heart-to-heart chats with his family, Korver determined he was ready to come back, ready to take on this new challenge. "I think really I needed to have the blessing of my wife and family," Korver said.
"You guys hear this too, surely, you're schedules are tough as well and the older I get, there's a family cost to continuing to play. It's a real thing. So once I felt like my family was in a spot where, even though we went through what we went through, we're good, we can keep going, that gave me the freedom to really decide for myself if I still love the game or not, if I wanted to put the work in. I don't want to just come here and just be around. I want to come here and work, play well, make shots, win games. It's a lot but once my family was good, shortly after that, I still have the desire."
