I feel like a proud Papa as the NBA Finals begin tomorrow. Having worked with All-Star Jameer Nelson of the Magic and Trevor Ariza, starting forward for the Lakers several times each, it’s truly exciting sitting on the sidelines.
Both are terrific young men in addition to being among the world’s elite basketball players. Both have made unbelievable strides during their careers and brings me great pride to watch them perform now at such high levels. Although, there can be only one winning team, they are both World Champs in my mind.
That being said, I am a life long Lakers fan dating back to when Elgin played in Minneapolis.
