CJ McCollum has been ballin’ in recent games, as the Portland Trail Blazers boast one of the best records in the NBA at this moment. The team has been great this start of the season and CJ has played a key role in that. He’s ready to continue with the good pace and has already sent a warning message to the rest of the league.
McCollum knows he’s part of a big team but also the rest of the league is strong. He is clear in what he wants to achieve in the association and after the Blazers beat the Toronto Raptors, CJ sent a big message to all the people that don’t think he’s good enough.
“I’m a killer. Figure out ways to eat. That’s what best describes me. Sharks just go hunt. Don’t worry about things. Never worry about how they get the next meal. Don’t worry about anything, that’s how I live my life.”

He’s having a terrific season so far and the Blazers hope to have him at this level for the rest of the campaign. This is a season with a lot of expectations for them and having McCollum inspired will bring a lot of benefits for them.
