In an October 2018 interview with Bleacher Report, the 32-year-old explained how difficult it was for him to separate his musical pursuits from his basketball career.
"It's hard to transfer, because everyone likes different music," he said. "I might have a guy who likes country music but likes me because of basketball. It won't transfer in his mind for the music. That's the struggle I'm going through right now: keeping basketball fans and gaining music fans, which are probably separate entities."
