Draft Days: Skal Labissière (Episode One, Two and the Press Conference)

Welcome to Draft Days, an intimate, behind-the-scenes look into the life of an NBA prospect in the weeks leading up to the draft. Next up is the first installment with Skal Labissière, power forward from Kentucky.


Growing up in Haiti is definitely different from growing up here in the States. Soccer is a big sport in Haiti. I grew up playing soccer my whole life. When I started growing up too tall for it, that’s when I switched to basketball.

I started watching a lot of basketball — watching Kobe Bryant on TV — and I fell in love with it. Around the age of 13 or 14, that’s when I really started to take it seriously.

I’m a very driven person because of where I came from.

I’m always ready to work.
