It’s gonna be a lot of hate, it’s gonna be a lot of people not believing in you but you know J. Cole—he got the right size, he in the gym! … But, what I told him … this a different time we’re in. They’re going to pick you apart! You’re gonna have to be able to hit every shot and if you don’t hit every shot, they—you know in the NBA, they don’t hit every shot but they believe in them. So, you’re gonna have to go somewhere where the team really believe in you and the players believe in you.” (TMZ Sports)
