James Wiseman has been through quite a lot over the past two years. After being drafted by the Golden State Warriors as the No. 2 overall pick in 2020, the 7-foot big man ended up missing more than half of his rookie campaign due to a brutal injury. Wiseman suffered a torn meniscus on his right knee — an injury that would force him to sit out the entirety of the 2021-22 season.

In a recent press conference, the 21-year-old got brutally honest about how therapy helped him get through some of his darkest days. He was continuously rehabbing his knee, but at the same time, he also had to take care of his mental health (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

“Just to be vulnerable for a second… I did go to therapy a lot just to express my thoughts and my feelings and how I felt, because it was a hard time for me, especially going through that injury,” Wiseman said. “I love basketball so much, I just want to be out there with my team. When I wasn’t out there, it was very hard for me.”

Despite the difficulties he had to go through, James Wiseman kept his head held high.

“I just pushed through,” he continued. “I got that resiliency to just keep going. It’s in my DNA. I’m not going to ever give up no matter how hard the situation is.”
