Sunday, just before the evening took over the day, I was checking the ball in against what many regard as the best basketball ball-handler in the World!

No one sees me when I’m all alone on the court, soaked with sweat, searching for a breath, with the sadistically hot sun laughing above. No one sees me when all that separates another repetition from quitting is the desire to improve alone. No one sees me when I’m in the gym launching one shot […]
