During the 2016-2017 season, I made my second NBA All-Star Game, finished 5th in the MVP race, and was selected to the All-NBA second team. I led the Boston Celtics in scoring and assists with 29 points and 6 assists per game on the way to having the best record in the Eastern Conference. I was at the top of my game until a hip injury ended my season in the Eastern Conference Finals.
After the 2016-2017 season, I was traded several times, bouncing from coast to coast all while playing with an injured hip. The wear and tear on my body lead to loss of cartilage and some arthritis, which eventually would require surgery. I went to Hospital for Special Surgery where Dr. Su performed a successful hip resurfacing procedure. In 5 months post-surgery, I have nearly gained full range of motion and resumed workouts.
As I continue to practice, rehab, and train, I look forward to joining a team for the upcoming 2021 season and getting back to the top of my game.
