It was certainly a crazy summer for me. From playing in the
Championships for Team USA, to being traded to the Houston Rockets,
to moving from Memphis to Houston, to signing a deal with PEAK and
traveling to Beijing for three days, and finally trying to fit in
as a new member of the Houston Rockets, I have been kept very busy.
I get tired just thinking about it! Although it
was crazy, it was also a very exciting summer for me. I like new
challenges, it keeps me energized.
I am really excited to be the international spokesperson for
PEAK! In the US, not very many people have heard
of PEAK shoes, so when I signed a contract with PEAK, most of my
friends did not know what to think. When I told them, however, that
PEAK is the largest shoe company in China, they were happy for
me. I think Yao Ming was the most surprised when
I told him that I was going to wear PEAK. I even joked with him
that my new friends in China may begin to like me more than him.
Hahahaha. Even he laughed at that one.
I am looking forward to wearing PEAK shoes and am really
excited about the Shane Battier signature shoe that is being
developed. Be on the lookout for them! Be sure to
check in regularly on this websites as I will be writing in all
season long to tell you about my life on and off the
Til then, keep cheering for the Rockets and I will talk to you
