Where I go from here? - Mar 1, 2016

I'm 6 games in with my new team and to say the least, I'm still very excited about the possibilities. We've gone 6-0 since I've been here and we've been climbing in the standings. We've gone from 5th to 2nd. Things are looking great and will continue on this path as long as we continue to build our team chemistry. There are still things I need to learn about my teammates as well as them learning about me. With that said, so far so good.
On a personal note, over the 1st 6 games I've played, I've had a career night with 41pts (9-10 from 3) nearly my 1st pro career triple double (1reb shy), 2 double figure assists games, and what I believe to be a career high in steals (7). Only counting the 6 games I've been with Niigata, I'd be 2nd in the league in scoring (25.5), 2nd in the league in assists (5.7), 1st in 3pt% (50.9), and tied for 1st in the league in steals (2.5). The question I ask myself is not if I can keep up this pace but how can I improve as well as help the team get better? The answer, make FTs, cut down on TOs, and pick up my 2pt %. As far as team goes, control the game better. See, I pride myself on staying level headed and making good decisions. I say that to say, I don't believe my own hype and I play mind games with myself to insure I stay focused and hungry. Whether it's challenging myself for consistency in practice or fabricating a story as to why I don't get the respect I feel I deserve, either way, this isn't where the train ends!
You see, a champion is champion long before they ever win a championship. I was taught a long time ago that you get better when no one is watching. And I was recently reminded that what's done in the dark shall always come to the light....I feel that can be spun in a positive manner. At the end of the season you'll understand who made the right decisions and put in the work behind closed doors. If you're taking shortcuts, this game will let you know about it. Time to go to werk!

Learning Curve- Apr.3, 2016  (by Wayne)

It's been a few weeks since I've last posted and during that time our team has slipped a bit. As an organization, I feel we started to believe the hype. This is the type of thing that can happen when you're not used to being the favorite. Also, this big red target that these posts are painting on our back probably isn't helping either. But hell, easy wins aren't as satisfying as hard fought victories. But I would assume that we are no longer the favorite, but honestly I have no idea. Over... [read more]

Wayne Arnold First Blog- Feb.11, 2016  (by Wayne)

I've never done a blog before so bare with me. I came to Japan(BJ League) in January on a short term contract, basically a tryout with the Shiga Lakestars. Before I get into this, I'm gonna give a little bit of history on my career in this league. Back 2 back champion, guard of the year, 6th man of the year, led the league in 3pt percentage, led the league in points per minute, 4 final four appearances, and I've played here for 5 seasons [read more]
