What a summer...workouts, camps, vacations, and TRADES have all made this one interesting summer. I'm back home in Louisville right now after being in Boston for the past few weeks working out. While in Boston I worked out with some of my new and old teammates...Gabriel Pruitt, Glenn Davis, Brandon Wallace, Jackie Manual, Kendrick Perkins, and Tony Allen. Tony (we call him TA) is recovering well...he actually played a few one on one games with us, so hopefully he will be 100% before the season starts. The workouts basically consisted of weight training, individuals, and team building. Off the court in Boston, I went to my first Red Sox game...that was fun..a Patriot's preseason game...the Scream Tour Concert...and of course, my favorite restaurant, Ruth's Chris.
Over the summer I hosted three basketball camps for kids ages 6-16. They went better than I had expected for it to be my first year. Each camp was a week long. The first camp hosted 80 kids, and the other two hosted 300 kids. I had only planned to host 2 camps, but because the first two sold out, I added the third. I love kids, and it was really fun to interact with them everyday. I had some of my homies come to the camps and speak to the kids about their careers and experiences...some of the people that came were: Mike Bibby (Kings), Rudy Gay (Memphis), Josh Smith (Hawks), Patrick Sparks (UK), Larry O'Bannon (UofL), Edgar Sosa (UofL), etc. Next year, I plan to host more camps including some in Boston and Lexington, Ky.
I got to take some nice vacations this summer...I went to Orlando, Miami, the Bahamas, and Jamaica. I got to do some good shopping in each place, so that was coo.
TRADES...I lost a lot of my homies due to the trades this summer. Telfair (Bassy), Green (G$), Jefferson (AJ), Gomes (Gomez)...congrats man on the wedding, West (D West), and Ray (A Reezy) were some of my closest teammates. Last year, in every city we went to, we would always go to Ruth's Chris together...ima miss that tradition. Even though we're not on the same team any more, we all try to keep in contact and check up on each other. This year I look forward to playing with my new teammates...one goal we all share is: the Championship! I'm excited about the upcoming season and look forward to all the possibilities that it brings. This is my world...welcome to it...I'll holla!
