How China Changed Aaron Brooks
Brooks made the most of his situation and had a great showing in China, but more importantly his time in the CBA gave him a fresh perspective on life in the NBA and with the Sacramento Kings.
“I just appreciate everything a little bit more,” says Brooks. “I know nothing is for certain and you can’t take anything for granted. I earned the starting position in China, too, so it wasn’t a huge stretch from losing the starting position in Houston and coming off the bench in Phoenix because I got it back in China. Right now we’re playing good basketball and Coach could shake up the lineup again, so just being prepared and being able to adapt to different situations, I think I’m equipped for that now.”
