Without the enduring love and support of my family, I would not be here today. Family and basketball are both intricate parts of me.
Basketball has always been my outlet: Hooping was my diversion as a kid dealing with my grandmother’s battle with and eventual death from cancer and my parents’ divorce. Picking up a basketball was and still is therapeutic.
Life is richer because of your experiences and the resulting wisdom. Coupling knowledge with wisdom provides potency to pass on to your kids.
I now have my own family, including my son. Being a parent that sets a good example is a serious responsibility and priority for me.
