“It’s to the point where I want to be on this show even if it’s just to do commentary. I just want involvement, but I’m not there yet. I don’t want to take a spot from anybody. I don’t want to put a spotlight on myself when it’s not going to lead to anything. I’m definitely cool to sit and cheer on the sidelines for everyone to go out there and kill it and have a great show.”
