Allow me to commence my remarks with my heartfelt congratulations to all of the “incredible individuals” who are being honored here this evening. I say to each of you thank you for your extraordinary contributions to the game of basketball. To share this momentous occasion with each of you is a humbling experience.
On numerous occasions in my adult life I chose to hit “the pause” button in my everyday activities then I seek refuge in a solitary environment where I can engage in “self-reflection” this is my time to reflect on the past, the present, and the future.
On numerous occasions as I indulge in “self-reflection” I have concluded that I just might be the “luckiest person” God has ever created.
Reality is this, I’ve had more good things happen to me in my lifetime than any one person deserves.
