I did make leprosy was really eleventh grade I got cut from six grade all the way to tenth grade didn't like you said the summer to greater miracle happened I grew five inches over the site. And is still the all Michael was his teammates at the same thing for me it's Allison nice they said in order to be good at basketball you have this killer instinct a mean streak with a member develop. So it was only later on in life you know laughing people can't tell me do all you want to do is smile and dunks Holland and easily do that Tyler in the Harlem globe studies they need to do that so. It is important now for me played against the booked times for one season after college common and I decided Tesla wanted to do my life and for the last eight years and in Harlem Globetrotters. How cool is that that's excellent and it says you know and speak to be in a nice guy and all the rest. You have advice for young athletes to Korea I tell on until we got to be possible bomb be the accountable he means what you know mr. attitude you're you're on time or early. Exactly ME got too many people out there who you know they gamers basketball is is given to them just because they had the natural ability. I tell him because it will be the person that the clothes could depend on with his plan or his philosophy and he couldn't dress you and EE he knows you're gonna take care of it like I played a lot of minutes over guys who were better basketball players in me by far but because I listened to the coast you put me out there even. I played over people who ask Alice it's arousal walk on in college. You know and I took it is not just his torso because of life he knows he appears as he is he Souza adults as he bosses anybody who wants to give you any type of advice they obviously care about sued enough to one city data tell you something and is free to list the same as a hero. Just ask you this because of LeBron James sank right now. He's you know he's talking just like you are mean people look up to sports. Stars and they really can make a difference for young people's lives and now we've got some talk I host who's trying to tellem that he's got a shot up and dribble. You know I completely disagree without but just under your thoughts on that as someone who is you know playing in the sport what do you think about this whole thing. We you know we didn't ask for this magnetism. This is guy giving guy -- -- that mouth saying give us his microphone he gave us the ability to it to do the things that we do so you know with like Peter Parker is uncles and agree power comes great responsibility. You know and I think it's great that he's using his platform to -- either responsibility widely and I you know we do the same thing the Harlem Globetrotters we go to we've been to a 123. Countries -- provinces around the world as ambassadors of good will come later on a dale Willits who schools or go -- England to some boys and girls clubs in the area I'm talking that it kids about the ABCs of bullying prevention because bullying is a huge epidemic nowadays the school comes I -- opportunity as I sit with the kids modeling experience and you know I like that polygamy like here's this guy six foot 8225 pounds and if he was able to make it doable only experience that may be I can't do so is this really get that we get his hands he's a platform. Great now so there's a lot of kids out there who'll go watch you guys in an injured talking about advice for kids about being coach of ball. On the deal also think that act like watching kids go to basketball I also think a lot of the worry so much about themselves and how many points they score and you know and I think what's missing sometimes as a whole like part of a team we all again as early as saying. That's and that's what is so great about the globetrotters a lot of times kids when they come our game with their first introduction to the game of basket law and they see guys and girls out there who are enjoying themselves you know not taken his game to see is like SA -- student -- from the stands we're bringing you down were spent in the bawling your finger we're having a good time you know we're not yelling at each other we're showing you how important it is to have a good team bonding camaraderie among two teammates in I think that's what's most important about the game of basketball what you really learn is how to you know. Life skills for later on in life. So if you don't think there's any chance they're gonna raise a group of fourteen yeah. He and you think they'll drop down to like eight feet for a guy like me.
