1To the fact that you can't really speak to the ref and the refs don't want to hear it, that's almost like communism. That's like Castro, you know what I'm saying? I'm not going to compromise who I am and my emotions. If I can't play with my emotions and my adrenaline, my energy that I've been born and gifted with ... then I don't know. I'm definitely going to go out and be me.
2I'm 30. I've probably got 4 to 5 years, you know what I'm saying? My clock is ticking, man. I'm almost like a woman who¡¦s trying to get pregnant. My years are limited, so my clock is definitely ticking.
