I’m one of the league leaders in points in the paint... At this point, it’s like they’re trying to turn me into a jump shooter. I can’t be a jump shooter. I’m not a jump shooter... I watch games every single night, and I see jump shooters going (to) the line multiple, double-digit times every night. I’m not a jump shooter, and I get fouled just like everybody else.

I’ve been going through my own sort of crisis if you like, of late — trying to make sense of it all. There’s a lot of contact, a lot of traffic, but very little dialogue.

During an AP interview, Grammy-winning singer Seal talks about how deeply concerned he is about what he calls "anti-social social media and the emotionless conversations enabled by technology".
He stepped back to observe how he and his children used social media and messaging apps — and didn’t like what he saw.

It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voices in the Arts. I feel it is important to honour and respect that.
