Give Sports founder XJ Silas is one of the hardest working people I've had the pleasure of working with. His work ethic is out of the roof, his love for the game is so noticeable and evolving his game to become a better basketball play is something I've seen from the first time playing with him.

It was truly a privilege working along side Xavier and his father, James, over the past few years at their camp, and I look forward to returning over the next years to continue improving my skills as a player and as a teammate.

You know, it’s no mistake that his jersey is up there next to mine. We both brought national attention to San Antonio, James Silas is definitely one of the lost guys who doesn’t get the credit he deserves, especially for playing the one spot. I would do all the damage during three quarters and in the fourth quarter we’d get him the ball because we knew he was ‘Captain Late.’ The things that he could do to those little point guards was amazing.

It’s really cool to work with two former NBA players. Getting to play basketball while I get to know new people is really fun. I’ve developed a great relationship with both Xavier and James, and I cant wait to work as an intern this summer for them.

X even as a younger man always had a desire to improve and get better... talented for sure but hard work set him apart from the rest. It's fitting that he is showing others how to improve as well.
