Kareem spoke eloquently about his teammates during his career with the Lakers. Kareem still holds the record for most points in one career and the most college championships by one individual. He is a role model for past and present men through his foundation work and story of no drugs, alcohol or personal drama during or post his career. I was very honored to shake his hand.
I grew up with college sports being from Ohio and I wish my mother was alive to have accompanied me to the games. Her love of sports was passed down to me and it makes living with a sports fanatic husband easy most days as we debate over the tv remote.
Remember your success was made possible by the people around you. It takes a village to make it through life so make sure you thank your mentors, sponsors, friends and family. Never assume you can survive alone in this big world. Surround yourself with positive energy from people who share your same values and aspirations.
