Eric Bledsoe shares his story of how his childhood struggles are a driving force for him to work hard and push himself further. Starting from a humble background, Eric recalls how he started playing basketball, all the work he put into it as he worked his way into the NBA, and how he managed to stay positive and motivated after a knee injury which left him out of the squad for 8 months.
