“Sometimes, I think too much,” the 22-year-old (Willy Hernangomez) said. “So I need to let my body just play. Let my mind play. I think too much, like if I miss a shot.”

So Hernangomez latched onto some advice from Carmelo Anthony.

“Melo told me, ‘Just shoot. If you miss, you miss, if you make you make. But that’s basketball.’ So some days in the beginning I feel pressure if I miss or make a mistake. But I have to still just play basketball and enjoy it,” Hernangomez said.
