Michael Porter Jr. has always had the talent and drive to dominate with the ball in his hands, but injuries sometimes have a way of being the equalizer on whether or not that talent translates to success on the court. Well, it seems any questions that might have lingered have been put to rest as MPJ has taken his game to a new level over the last two seasons. And in this interview, it’s easy to see why as he speaks well beyond his years and touches on both the difficulties and successes he has encountered on his hoops journey.
