Today I became a part of a brotherhood! I am a honorary member of the #MadeMan organization. 100 male philanthropist, were honored tonight and being a part of this group was an amazing experience. So many successful black men whom I've never met before (I knew a few), to be in this room was an eye opener on the possibilities to build and strengthen my network. Being a kid from Southeast D.C, I wasn't supposed to be in that room with the cards I was dealt. But by God's grace and a little faith, I was two feet down and being honored. There are some things that God can do that men can't!
"I never, never, never lost a 1 on 1 game for money!"
The start of it all. The development and the troubles that lit the light bulb and started the faith and character building.
One reason I was successful at playing basketball was because I made the game my own. I played it how I wanted to play it. Once I learned the fundamentals, I was able to manipulate the game. I gained IQ and learned how to manipulate opponents. I learned to be deceptive, I learned to make defenders puppets.
"...I've never played a game that I didn't get double teamed on any level!"
