While viewing a clip of the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks, Scottie Barnes of the Raptors got into a confrontation with Quentin Grimes of the Knicks. Scottie wags his finger at Grimes saying, “You are not him. You are not him” I haven’t heard of this phrase before but it struck me as funny.
I first heard it from Scottie, now I’m seeing it on social media and especially from athletes. It’s the same energy as taking the last shot in a tied game and making it. It’s the same energy as scoring a hat trick in the World Cup final. It’s the same energy as striking out one of the best baseball players in the world to win the World Baseball Classic.
I’m him. I feel powerful and confident just writing that. It’s main character energy at its finest.
