1[as an environmentalist] The Kenya Wildlife Service let us into a small room, full of ivory tusks and other animal products. It doesn't feel full of a product. It feels full of ghosts.,
2I'm getting fat... because my size, I put on 20 or 30 pounds, it doesn't show very much... I'm thinking about going back to work out in a very short time.
3Basketball, in America, is like a culture. It is like a foreigner learning a new language. It is difficult to learn foreign languages and it will also be difficult for me to learn the culture for basketball here.
4Everybody is improving but I am improving slowly, which seemingly widens our distance.
5I finished my high school. I think an educate is very, very important.
6If you're going to learn a new language, you can't try to be perfect. You'll stop yourself from talking. You just have to let go.
7No matter whether you are new or an old team member, you need time to adjust to one another.
8A good leader must be fair.
9Fortune cookies are a good idea. If the message is positive, it can make your day a little better.
10Endangered species are our friends.
11When I was young, we were taught not to dunk. We were taught not to stand out from the rest of the team. It's different now.
12Putting our ecosystem in great peril is certainly not a part of Chinese culture that I know.
