Behind the Facemask: Jimmy Graham
 
1 Attachment(s)
Were you surprised at your level of success last season?

I wasnt surprised. I set really lofty goals to start the season. My goals fell right in to place. I am a guy who really reaches for the sky. For me, the goals that I set are literally that high and I was able to reach those last years.

What inspires you? What motivates you?

I have a motivation to win. I have a motivation to be the best. I want people to respect me. I want people to call me a hard worker. Those are the things that motivate me. It is really self-motivation. There are not many outside forces, maybe my background. It is just in me to always fight. Even when things are good, I am always thinking of what I am doing wrong or what I could be doing better. For me, there is always a constant urge to get better. There is a constant urge to prove myself.

Do you have a favorite moment from last season?

One of my favorite moments last year was playing in Atlanta. I scored a touchdown and whenever I dunked it, I bent the goal-post. Instantly, I felt like it had moved so I looked back and realized it was slanted. That was probably one of my favorite moments from last year for myself.

Do you have any new dunks planned?

I do have some new dunks planned. I was working a little bit in the offseason. I saved most of the stuff. I have been doing windmills, 360s and just regular two-handed dunks. I will do a reverse. I have the between-the-legs in my back pocket. That is going to have to be like in the Super Bowl and I just got the game winner and I am just selling out.

Full interview.

He does seem to have matured and developed into a nice young hard working man. Glad for him.
