What a year 2012 was!!!  For me and this journey of mine to play Michael Jordan, it was really, truly a phenomenal year! Through persistence, hard work and the grace of God, a lot was accomplished. Still more remains, but reflecting on 2012 and all that happened here amazes me!  I believe reflection is a […]

Last week, while watching some playoff hoops all iced up and recovering on the couch from a nearly three hour workout, I sent a text to my buddy Andy that said, “It took me almost 35 years to realize my basketball skills are limited.” The majority of me was joking of course, as I’ve never been […]

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 […]

He faked right, crossed over left, lowered his shoulder and exploded to the rim. It was game point, in game number three this past Sunday and Robert Brown, one of the top basketball players in the country (#80 by ESPN/#54 by Bob Gibbons), was about to freeze the gym. Just one long stride past me […]

What do you do against a guy who was an all-conference player in college at Fayetteville State University?  What do you do against a guy who dropped close to 200 three pointers in his three years there and averaged over 16 points per game? What do you do against a guy who is so good […]

In 2010 I went from hating running to enjoying it.  From sitting on my couch to running over 530 miles.  I ran two half marathons.  I ran during the week in the mornings or evenings for fun.   From last summer through my injury, on the last day of January, I ran every Saturday morning (8-10 […]

Later tonight I will take the next step in my preparation to face Michael Jordan by attending my first training session with Kevin Sutton!!  Due to the group of players participating in this session (I’ll be the only 33 year old), I’ll be giving it my all. Will everyone else? Truthfully, will the college guy give […]

Later this evening I will jump in the car and accompany my wife to Miami, Florida, where she will audition for “The X Factor”, the new Simon Cowell television creation that is set to debut this fall. My wife sings, for fun. The first time I heard her sing, I had just finished throwing down […]

I thought it might take another 3-4 weeks, but it won’t. I’M BACK! Wednesday morning, exactly 8 weeks following the injury that has kept me from doing any activity, I made my comeback with a 1-on-1 rematch against Virginia Tech signee and one of ESPN’s Top 100 players, Robert Brown (see our first match-up here). Keep […]

2010 began like most years for me. Dick Clark did the countdown, the ball dropped, fireworks went off, and the calendar changed. Truthfully, I’ve never been much into new year’s resolutions because they don’t typically work.

Get Out and Move! (Appreciate Your Health)

It’s sad that it seems to always take an injury for me to fully appreciate the part of me that is injured.

I suppose most people go through life the same way. We run, jump, run faster and jump higher and think nothing of it until a sickness or injury halts our movement. Then we WISH we could just run and jump, even a little.

It was a little after 5am on Friday morning of last week. The sun had yet to welcome in the new day, but I felt like a small child on Christmas and I had done all the sleeping I could do.
