Wiseman understands that. “I’ve just got to do what got me here: rebound, block shots and run the floor,” he said. “Don’t try to do something that’s something out of my game, because I think I’m improving. I’m getting to the basket faster, trying to be more aggressive with my rebounding. I think I’m playing way better defense than previous games, and I’m being way more vocal on the defensive end. “I think I’m a great defender,but I need to be better on my timing and footwork in the rotations. Mind you, I only played three games in college. I’m still behind the 8-ball. But I’m getting exponentially better each day.”

“It’s pretty crazy,” Stephen Curry said recently. “We’ve been able to mobilize quickly. We didn’t expect to have such an impact — we only launched a year and a half ago. But so many kids were hanging in the dark. It was alarming. We are excited about the work we’re doing but it’s hard to celebrate because it means the need is so great. That’s the dichotomy.”
