At the end of high school, he was rated as a two-star prospect by ‘’ for college recruitment based on sports. He was offered a scholarship to play for “Weber State University” in Ogden, Utah. He graduated from the university in 2015 with a degree in professional sales. In college, his performance increased, and he helped the Weber State Wildcats win the league regular-season title. It is regarded as a tremendous honour that his performance earned him the “Big Sky Player of the Year” award and a mention by the “Associated Press.” When he graduated, he held the fifth-highest scoring position in “Big Sky” history.

He had a successful basketball season despite a foot injury that required him to “redshirt” for some time. He quickly won his second “Big Sky Player of the Year Award” (2010–2011). He elected to forego his senior year to enter the 2012 “NBA” draft, becoming the second-highest scorer in Weber State history.

In 2012, he began playing professionally with the Portland Trail Blazers. He became the third “NBA” player to score 20 points and 10 assists in his first game against the “Los Angeles Lakers” in his debut.

After missing six games, he made his 2,000th field goal in NBA history against the “Washington Wizards” upon his return.

He missed the first five games of the season because of an ankle injury, but he returned to become the 11th player in his team’s history to reach 8000 points in a career, sharing that distinction with LeBron James and Michael Jordan. He scored 49 points with nine three-pointers in April 2017 to earn the “Western Conference Player of the Month.” He became the ‘Blazer’ who scored 10,000 points, the fastest in franchise history, and was the player to reach that milestone the fastest (9000 points) in the fastest time ever. He was involved in a three-team trade and is now a member of the Milwaukee Bucks.
A passionate rapper and hip-hop artist, in addition to being a star basketball player, he also has a social media account called “4-Bar Friday,” where anyone may post a video of themselves rapping on “Instagram” every Friday.
