On a personal level
Who are you
I'm a brother,uncle,grandson ,nephew who wants to Inspire others to live out there dreams whatever they are...I truly believe happiness is doing what you love to do
What do you do when you are not playing- I'm a skill development trainer I work with pro players all the way down to beginners. I work with them to polish there strengths and build up there weaknesses to be a better more complete player. I accomplish this by first asking what there goals are then taking an assessment of there skill set then I put together a comprehensive plan to reach our goal.I started a company called Basketball Empire we do camps clinics coaches clinics to show young players how to get betters and to show coaches how to be better teachers of the game...I actually got an opportunity while I was there in Portugal to do a camp for the kids of Angrabasket it was sooo much fun.
How was your youth
Absolutely amazing I got to travel a lot playing basketball and at one time I was going to just focus on American Football but I'm glad I chose to stick with hoops.
How do you imagine in old age
Doing speaking engagements at camps around the world in order to motivate others to be great...work as a consultant for NBA teams colleges or European teams who are looking for players and coaches.
