Whats up everyone, I know its been a few months since my last check-in, but I'm here to update you guys on whats been goin on lately. I had an amazing summer spent at home in the US, mostly in my hometown of Flint, Michigan. But I did get a chance to go a few places as well. I took two vacations over the summer that were a lot of fun and crazy at the same time. Las Vegas, NV and Miami, FL were my two destinations, and let me just say those two places never let me down!!! It was great to relax, have some fun with good friends and just enjoy time off. Spent a lot of time at the pool and on the beach relaxing in the sun and taking time out to enjoy the fruits of my labor. We all need those getaways every now and then to give our mind a body a break from all the hard work we put in on a daily basis.
On the weekends me and my crew team up to play in summer league games. This year we competed in the MoneyBall Pro-Am which took place in Lansing, Michigan. My team (Team Flintstones) consisted of Myself, Corey Santee, Greg Burks, Kelvin Torbert, Charlie Bell, Lamar Rice, Desmond Young, and a few other guys who showed up from time to time. We like to play together over the summer because its a way to keep your game sharp while playing in a 5 on 5 atmosphere. Also we just like to play with each other, something we never got to do in High School and College, so its a fun to go out and compete with guys you consider you brothers every summer. I think I had one of my best summers this year as far as basketball goes. I really worked hard and pushed myself everyday to get better. I think it showed in my play in the summer league especially when I had my career high of 53 points. It was one of those games where everything was clicking and going right for me. It definitely felt great to feel that kind of reward for all the work I had put in this summer. This year we took second place, losing a heartbreaking game in the Championship by 2 points. Tough way to lose but I think overall it was a great summer for us and we will be back at it next year!!
Until next time, take care of yourself and Love one another the way God Love us all!!!
