Basketball Isn’t The Only Game Steve Played

Steve’s father had no idea about basketball then, so Steve grew up playing soccer, hockey, baseball, box lacrosse, and chess, as these were quite famous in Canada, according to Steve

In an interview, Steve said that when he was in eighth grade, he got introduced to basketball and started playing basketball, but he was still, involved in playing soccer and hockey as he used to play for the city select team. 

He said that after a year of playing basketball, he loved it so much that he quit hockey and soccer. 

An Athlete Dies Twice As Per Steve

Before officially retiring from basketball, Steve had claimed that it felt a weird transition for him to play a game for more than 18 years in a national basketball league and leave it, as every athlete has to go through this. 

He said that many people express that an athlete dies twice.

If you have to be happy for the rest of your life, you have to say goodbye to your former self, which is not easy said Steve.
