EMONI BATES is a Basketball Star at 14: SLAM High School

September 11, 2019


You don’t go out there to compete to be second. You’re going to be the best. I encourage him to always have that killer instinct. When you’re on the court it’s not about being
friends, it’s all about competing. I see him in the NBA. Just watch him workout. The passion. The intensity. Everything he does, he does hard. The drive is just non-stop. He’s always trying to perfect whatever it is he’s doing, and if he doesn’t, he’s his biggest critic. That’s just him. He’s a perfectionist.
