Portis eager to prove his worth after getting big contract
Milwaukee Bucks forward Bobby Portis says his new contract won't change the blue-collar approach that helped him earn the big payday.

But he takes issue with the notion that the long-term deal brings him a sense of security. “My mindset is always going to be that someone is trying to take my spot and I have to go hard each and every day to show why I’m worth what I’m worth,” Portis said Thursday.news.yahoo.com
