The NBA’s Player Development Program was designed to aide players with life skills training and development, player counseling and assistance, and education and career transition. The program’s overall mission is to help NBA players realize their potential both on and off the court through comprehensive educational programming and critical support services and mentoring.
What about Kwame?
Oh, that was my young fella. Kwame was my young fella. I think he got an unfair tag on him that he was soft and things like that. If you're coming from high school, you think you're in shape, you think you're playing hard. But when you get to the NBA, you're not in shape, and you're not playing hard. Some people can take that criticism and then use it as motivation and build on it, but some people couldn't, and it took him a little time to grasp that.
