Reason

“I didn’t play basketball initially. Until the age of 10, I played cricket, then tennis, badminton and athletics. Since there were no good schools where my dad transferred, I stayed with my mum in her hometown of Pollachi. There was a tar court with wooden backboards, which for us was like heaven. My father used to come home every weekend and taught me how to dribble and shoot.” (ekalavyas.com, 5 Oct 2014)
