“I didn’t get to play but in the morning I was really nervous. It took me a while to settle down. In the warm-up, I couldn’t stop thinking about that ‘it is my first NBA game, all the hard work of years has finally paid off’. The last few days have been crazy,” said Bhullar from Sacramento.

“NBA is a hard league to get into," Bhullar explained. "The aim is to get better day by day. Reaching the level where I am at was hard. For me, it was mostly about getting my body weight down, more like an NBA player, like an athlete. I feel I run quicker now, running up and down faster, the jump is higher too."

“Being a big guy could be a good and bad thing," Bhullar said. "I need to work extra on my fitness, get to the speed of other guys but my height makes up for that. So it could work both ways. Off the court, people think it is tough for me to walk around but I have learnt to live with it.”

“I am definitely an Indian at heart," Bhullar said. "My whole family is more Indian than Canadian. My parents migrated from Punjab long ago and I grew up talking Punjabi in the house. I feel my Indian roots are pretty strong. Having said that, I am just happy to represent my country (of birth) but I hope I reaching NBA opens door for a lot of Indian boys and girls."
