He started by saying: "First and foremost I have to thank my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for blessing me with the talents to play this game, with the family to support me, day in, day out. I'm his humble servant right now and I can't say enough how important my faith is to who I am and how I play the game."
"I pound my chest and point to the sky, it symbolises that I have a heart for God, something that my mom and I came up with in college. I do it every time I step on the court as a reminder of who I'm playing for. People should know who I represent and why I am who I am, and that's because of my Lord and saviour."
Speaking of the obstacles he has had to overcome, he said: "Everything happens for a reason, and everything has a story, and if you take time to realise what your dream is and what you really want in life... whether it's sports, whether it's in other fields, you have to realise that there's always work to do."
He credited his teammates, who he thanked in turn, with challenging him every day and driving him forward and making him a better player.
His advice for others was to "be the best version of yourself in anything that you do. You don't have to live anybody else's story... Doesn't matter where you come from, what you have or don't have... All you need to have is faith in God, and undying passion for what you do, what you choose to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever it takes to be successful at whatever you put your mind to."
He finished by saying: "Make sure you live in the moment and work your butt off... I hope I inspire people all around the world to just be themselves, be humble, and be grateful for all the blessings in your life."

Draymond Green tells his mom: 'They told me I can't play in this league!' By James Herbert | NBA writer June 17, 2015 12:40 am ET
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green had a 16-point, 11-rebound, 10-assist triple-double in the NBA Finals-clinching Game 6 on Tuesday, and he celebrated his title with a word for his doubters. CBSSports.com's Zach Harper captured Green yelling to his mother, Mary Babers-Green, "Mom, they told me I can't play in this league!"
"That's what they said," Green said postgame. "I won the national player of the year award in college. Consensus all-American. I made every single first-team all-American [team] that you could possibly make. And I was a second-round pick and a lot of people said I could never play in this league. Too slow, too small, can't shoot well enough, can't defend nobody, what does he do well? He doesn't have a skill that stands out. I got heart and that's what stands out."
Green added that he read a story after his rookie year saying that he's good at defense but he'd be out of the league if he doesn't shore up his offensive game. He's not worrying about any of that anymore.
"They can never take this [championship] away from me," Green said. "So all the rest is history. It don't matter."
It was fitting that Green performed so well on this stage. His contributions as the starting power forward changed the Warriors' season, and his play as the starting center changed the Finals. Not bad for a guy who was picked No. 35 overall in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Next up for the guy who supposedly couldn't play in this league: free agency, and all but certainly a maximum contract from Golden State.
