And I needed to just kind of get back and be like: ‘Dude, you live an unbelievable life. Like, you don’t always have to play good.’ ”

He concluded his remarks with, “And I mean, kudos to pretty much every professional athlete out there — it’s, I haven’t been in this world for a long time, but it’s f---ing hard.”
