WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going on everybody? Just checking in to tell you about my trip to Stillwater on Monday night to see my Texas Longhorns take on Ã¢â‚¬” and beat Ã¢â‚¬” Oklahoma State. It ended up being a great game and ESPN was even there.
I went to the game with my friends from home plus Russell Westbrook, Kyle Weaver, Jeff Green, James Harden and D.J. White. I just wanted to support my guys. It was a good game, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m happy I went. It was cool just to see them. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re people I really love and really care for, and it was especially good to see them do so well.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m glad I got to talk to them and see them in person, too. I got there right before tip-off so I saw them at halftime and after the game. I talked to Coach Barnes, asked him how he was doing and he said he was proud of me and just told me to continue to work. I really miss seeing those guys since I was there the whole summer and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking forward to going back down there this summer.
As far as the atmosphere went, the fans were great and the student section was funny. I miss college a lot. I really, really miss it. Even though I was in OSU territory, no one really gave me a hard time. They really were just like, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhey how are you doing? Remember the game you played here a couple years back when it went to triple-overtime?Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ It was just reminiscing. It was cool to have just friendly competition between myself and some Oklahoma State fans. Like I said, I was happy I went and hopefully IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll go to more games in the future.
Texas was No. 1 but they lost three out of the last five I think. But theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been playing well. Every team goes through a spurt where they lose a couple of games here and there. That happens and they go through that every year. I think theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be alright. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got a lot of talent on that team. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re deep. I was hoping to see them this weekend at OU but weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be in San Francisco. So IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m happy I saw them. Seeing them once was better than not seeing them at all.
So what do you guys think of the college basketball season so far? Surprise teams or players, favorites to watch? Anyone a Longhorns fan? Let me know in the comments section.
We play the Hornets tonight in New Orleans. Make sure to send a prayer out for my bro Chris Paul. He injured his knee and I just want to see him healthy and back on the court as soon as possible.
Talk to you soon.
