Here is our conversation with Cameron Boozer
All right, we’re here with Cameron Boozer. I know it’s been nonstop for you. You haven’t had really any breaks, but talk about how the camp’s been these last … having two-a-days every day playing in altitude. How’s it been?
It’s been very competitive. It’s been tough, been a grind. Two-a-days at altitude, it’s pretty tough pushing through it, so make a lot tougher.
Yep. And then just talk about the growth of your game from the start. When you started high school until now, how do you feel like your game has improved?
I feel like my jump shot’s gotten way better. I feel like I’m making better reads, reading the game better, seeing plays ahead. So I think I’m just a better player out.
Yep. And the reads, playing point forward, also playing off the ball a lot, too, as well. Doing pin downs and being able to shoot the ball and also making good passing reads. Just talk a little bit about that. Where did that come from? And then, when did you start playing a lot at point forward?
Just watching the game, you see top guys make great plays all the time. Okay, just watch that and learn reads off of that. And I feel like it just comes from just playing the game and watching the game, just being involved in it all the time.
Yep. And then last two questions. What are some areas of improvement that you want to improve on that you’re working towards through right now?
Taking better care of the ball. Making better reads on pick and rolls and handoffs and stuff like that.
Yep. And then, who are some players that you’ve been watching, too, on the NBA side that you’ve been learning from?
Paolo, Tatum, Jokic, Anthony Davis, Giannis, just a lot of the top guys.
Yeah. And then last question. Sixteens, you guys are playing with six teams, but you guys’ group has been together, y’all won Fifteens. Just talk about the importance of you guys being together as a group,
and then as a collective instead of you just playing Seventeens and then going up. But I feel like that’s good that with what y’all doing.
We’re a family. We’ve been together since the second grade, so we’re just going to stick together and we’ll keep fighting. That’s what make us so good, because we’re so close, and it’s helped a lot the past couple years.
Yes, sir. Appreciate-
