During my time off from basketball a lot has changed. One might even say nothing has changed but that just depends on which lens you see life through. It seems that I have my finger tips in every sort of basketball venture that I can possibly have it in. From training clients to hosting ESPN HS Showcases to coaching college to coaching high level AAU teams. Out of all these things it's one common denominator; BASKETBALL. Through my time traveling around the USA searching for talent the game of basketball is everywhere, and you might meet and train top ranked players like J. Fish who recently signed with UNLV or to kids from small rugged towns that has more cows than people like my client Ethan Holloway (who recently got invited to ScoutFocus All-American/All Academic camp). You start to gaze through the depths of self conscious and start to think what life really is. Even though I touch a lot of people's lives throughout my time in basketball, you start to think who has effected your life recently. I just told a close friend of mine Friede Ndoumbe, who I train her daughter and a few other Cameroonian Clients and African Decent clients that plays Prep that "you always can weed through the fake people the first time you met someone, and you can easily smell the the genuine people". So you just play that little game some people like to call "politics" until one day it comes to light. Through it all I manage to smile each and every day because having a close knit family and my 5 months year old boy you have no choice but to be happy. During each and every workout he sits and just stares in aw at how the basketball makes the loudest sound, or those quick movements (people in drills), or even that weird squeaky sound (shoes on the court) and then you realize life couldn't be this great without him.
The reason one might last over time in the game of basketball is pretty simple. I tell my AAU team this "If you don't love the game of basketball, it won't love you back". It's a delicate sport but over time with enough worked put into it, it becomes very very easy. From understanding the work ethic, to being a student off the court, to surrounding yourself with people doing the same thing as you, to even simply taking care of the body. It's an art, it's VIP tickets to the wine fest, it's that new car smell, it's front row tickets to a jazz concert on 18th & Vine. It's all these beautiful things we take for granted in life. While looking at this thing called BASKETBALL on the other side of the window you appreciate it even more.
I've been blessed to play this game for a very long time and even be around people who been in the game for more than 30 years. What you do is sit with these people and slowly start to peel each and every thought, advice, speeches from each person until one day you have a bookcase of material you can use in your everyday life. So for that very reason I'm back in The Lab.

Stay tuned for new episodes from my very own documentary series on YouTube called S.O.S. Struggle Over Success. A lot of people where involved in making these videos and want to tell them thanks and also thanks to Mack "KCWEON" McConnell for seeing my vision years ago and putting them in a mysterious way the world can see it.

Always Remember "The people you hang around determines your future".
