I'd Rather Make Mistakes Trying Than Never Trying At All - Dec 25, 2012


POSTED BY:

Life is full of things that we sometimes call obstacles. We all go through our fair share of them throughout our life, whether its being something minor or serious. But it's not the obstacles that's the problem but how we deal with them at that certain time. I'm sure everybody's parents gave you the same speech about what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger, and I didn't really care to understand what that meant when I was younger. But when you grow up and experience different culturals you understand this quote first hand. Some people lay down and complain and others get so flustered that they begin to think in a negative way through out life. On the other hand it's people that thrive in bad situations and negativity and we all know that to get through these problems we have to try so hard that sometimes mistakes are made. Those people on the outside looking in always have something negative to say about how and why you didn't achieve or beat that obstacle at that time. But ain't that the beauty of it? People will always try to find a way to throw stones at your life and tell us how it can be better, but in all actuality they want to walk a life in your shoes. So to those people out there that always want to be that sour apple in a barrel; I'd rather make mistakes TRYING than never trying at all.
I pick up where I left off in my last blog. After we beat Kutasi we beat the leagues Eurochallenge team Armia in a nail biter at home. Our crowd really gave us that extra motivation to get that important win at home. That week I cashed in my token for Eurobasket Player of The Week, which is a great accomplishment for us basketball players abroad. We ended our first half (first stage) of the season beating Batumi as well which put us tied for 1st place in the league. Batumi was a well needed adventure that me and my family needed, just to be able to get away during and before the holidays. Batumi is a very nice city in the far western region of Georgia which borders the Black Sea. We got a chance to walk the sea coast and it was an amazing view, but the black sea beach is nothing like beaches at home. But still it was a blessing to experience the diners, bars, views and life in Batumi for a few days. During the game it actually was earthquake that clocked in at 5.8 magnitude which actually shifted the gym. It was quite the experience with all the commotion going on in the gym, people running and screaming. If it wasn't for the Black Sea upsorbing some of the shock than the magnitude would of been even more dangerous and bigger, but we where blessed to finish the game and got a good win; 107-75. Eurobasket provided me with Eurobasket Player of The Week award again for the third time this year. I had a solid game having 25PTS, 13REBS, 7AST and 7STLS. Hell of way to end the first half of the season. Me, my girl and my teammate joined another American player; Arch and his family for Christmas dinner. It's always nice to link up with another American family and enjoy the holidays that you love and are use to back at home. We have a nice break in January to really regroup and go back to the basics as well as getting better as a team to ensure a better second half of the season.
Looking forward to enjoying my time off and with my family. Happy holidays to my friends overseas as well as back home. Always remember: Never let someone tell you that you can't do nothing. If you have a dream you have to protect it. If people can't do or accomplish their own dreams they love to tell you that you can't accomplish yours.

Superleague Round 17: Olimpi beat Mgzavrebi in a derby game - 1 day ago
The Regular Season in Superleague is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Olimpi (#7) and Mgzavrebi (#8). Mgzavrebi was defeated at home 73-79 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Mgzavrebi. The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 26-1...   [read more]
