I have had many triumphs and disappointments in life, many things I have delighted in have come and gone, but the one solid love that has never departed from me has been basketball. I believe that "Ball is life." It's unlike any other sport I've played, no matter how I'm feeling I channel all my energy into it, it reflects most of who I am. If it isn't already obvious, I love basketball and Dwayne Wade is my favorite player in the NBA.
I one day wish to meet Dwayne Wade, so I can express my true appreciation and gratitude on how he and basketball inspired me.
One word that describes me... Ambitious.
