Or perhaps not.
The Kings shield says he turned 26 on Monday, even though he is listed as 25 from the Kings media guide and on the NBA’s official site.
Where the advice got begun hield doesn’t know, but he says it didn’t come from him.
“That’s his fault, not my fault,” Hield told NBC Bay Area on Thursday. “the very first time I watched it on Wikipedia, my mother explained,’Why would they have your era wrong?’ I said,’I Don’t Have Any idea.'”
Hield, that was created in Freeport in the Bahamas, came to the USA this year along with his passport, which then lists his correct date of birth.
“My passport includes 1992 about it. My driver’s license has 1992 about it,”” Hield stated. “I just think people got their advice from Wikipedia or wherever, and so they just went with it. They just got it wrong.”
He explained he thought the mistake began when some one enter his advice in to the NBA’s database.
He was not attempting to pull anything on the Kings, though. He even gave them his passport, therefore Kings general director Vlade Divac and director of player personnel Peja Stojakovic know his age.
“That’s the only point that matters,” he explained.
Hield leads the Kings with a 19.9 scoring average, shooting 48 percent from the area and 43.3 per cent from 3-point range. He has averaging 31 minutes and career highs in rebounds (5.0) and assists (2.5).
