Talent and motivation are two different things. Why some athletes with all the talent in the world to make a lot of money aren’t motivated is one of the great mysteries. Julius Mays is not only very motivated, but he’s seen a number of athletes that had it, but didn’t use their talents.
“I come from a house of women that disciplined me very well so now being out here on my own, my self discipline is at a high level,” says the former UK guard. “I don’t need anyone on my back or knocking on my door or to wake me up. I don’t even need an alarm clock. I’m here on time.”
Julius can see himself playing in Europe. Cal has encouraged him to keep playing. When Cal talks, Mays listens.
