So it really honestly didn’t hit me until I was driving home after playing four seasons in the Arena League and I drove from St. Louis all the way to Los Angeles and my car by myself without the radio on just me and my thoughts and that’s when it was like wow, this is really over but it was over four years prior to that in reality.” – Jabari Smith
