Tommy Pham


"“Man. We’re not good. We’re not dynamic. We lack speed. We lack power. And if you look at all the good teams, they have that. They have both of those elements – speed and power. We just have a lot of guys, man, who are still trying to figure it out. And that element doesn’t help either.”"
