Boston Celtics rookie small forward Aaron Nesmith has been coming on strong in the last few weeks, finally looking comfortable playing in the NBA after some early growing pains adapting to the speed and intensity of games at the pro level. “Coming in early in the morning and doing what’s asked of me and then trying to do a little bit more, making sure I’m paying attention to everybody.”
“The guys who are playing, guys who aren’t playing, so that when I get my opportunity, I make the most of it.”

“You’ve got to make sure you live in the moment, be in the moment; in the moment we’re playing a game, whether I’m playing or not my teammates are out there working hard to win a game.
“You never know what’s going to happen in the course of a game – I might not play, I might, I might play a lot.
