I never played in the NBA.
I never played college basketball. 
I’m not 6’8.
I’m not related to anyone in professional sports.
I love the game.
I’m self-taught and still learning.
I was a lawyer, an unhappy lawyer.

I pray often.
I believe in me. 
I don’t play by the rules.
I don’t color in the lines.
I don’t wait for opportunity.
I don’t ask permission.
I don’t worry about criticism.
I know there will always be people that don’t believe in me.

I experiment until I figure it out then I tinker with it some more.
I’m always thinking. 
I question things.
I don’t know everything.
I know doing what I love will continue to lead me somewhere special. 
I’m proud and modest.
I live a blessed life.
