NBA: Toronto Raptors-Media Day John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

OG Anunoby is a rookie for the 2017-18 Toronto Raptors. Here is his Quote of the Week for the week of January 24, 2018.

Owing to his aforementioned rookie status, Anunoby’s play as of late has been marred by some inconsistencies. It’s an acknowledged trend for most, if not all, rookies — they all struggle at some point in mid-season.

In this piece by TSN’s Josh Lewenberg, Anunoby is asked to address how he’s been learning to adjust to his new professional reality, and what he’s trying to do to break through this rookie wall.

“You kind of figure it out on your own,” Anunoby said, as if to say, it’s an adjustment but it’s not rocket science. “If you’re tired during the day, you take a nap.”

Words to live by.

See you next week.
