Once upon a time, there was a young basketball player who had a dream of becoming one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
He worked day and night every day for years and years and years and years. As time went on 20 years had passed he felt that he had accomplished all that he set out to accomplish but would he come to realize is that the goal that he set out initially to becoming the greatest of all time was a very fickle one.
When he realized that the most important thing in life is how your career moves and touches those around you and how it carries forward to the next generation. And he realizes that’s what makes true greatness.
The story would be about the transformation of a kid looking inwardly to then growing up and understanding the importance and the power is looking outward.
…I am very thankful for the 20 years that I had. And I am ready to go…
