I think all these kids are true all-stars. Over the years this game has always been very competitive. This is about island pride, and this is about being the best in the V.I.
Speaking to Tim, he's very excited about the opportunity to come home. He hasn't played ball in the Virgin Islands since he left for the NBA. He's always wanted in some way to come back home.
The Spurs are coming because Tim is from St. Croix. It's unprecedented having an NBA team practice in the Virgin Islands, let alone the NBA champions. A lot of compromises had to be made for the Spurs to make this happen, but the Spurs were willing to make the sacrifice for Tim.
We came in with a game plan for Craig, we wanted to play a box-and-one. He's their head man, and we wanted to take the head off the team.
It's going to be very exciting. I guarantee that this will be the biggest crowd that these players have played in front of this year, if not in their whole career.
