It’s not a doubt in my mind that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the greatest college player ever! Three National Championships and if freshman had been eligible to play, he would have won four straight!!

We need rapid antibody tests for COVID-19 to fight this pandemic. FDA should approve them now!

I’m looking forward to seeing ESPN’s College Basketball’s Greatest of All Time show coming on at 4 p.m. PST!

The greatest women’s college basketball player I’ve ever seen in my lifetime is Cheryl Miller!!

Even though we had to stay in, @cjbycookie  and I still received a powerful message from @BishopCEBlake  by streaming one of Bishop’s previous sermons online. During these uncertain times, we really needed a word from God.

My friend, a legend, husband, father, son, brother, Oscar winner and greatest Laker of all-time is gone. It’s hard to accept. Kobe was a leader of our game, a mentor to both male and female players.

As I try to write this post, my mind is racing. I’m in disbelief and have been crying all morning over this devastating news that Kobe and his young daughter, Gigi have passed away in a helicopter crash. Cookie and I are heartbroken.

Kobe, we miss you and I hope we made you proud.

Kobe and I shared so many special conversations about life and basketball. We had so much in common off the court. I used to love talking to him about Lakers basketball, being fathers and husbands and how much we loved Italy. I will miss those conversations and him so much.

I feel sorry for my friends Coach Doc Rivers and Chris Paul that they have to work for a man that feels that way about African Americans.

He gave his knowledge, time, and talent to tutor so many at the youth level, collegiate level, & NBA & WNBA players. Words can’t express the impact that he had on the game of basketball. I know basketball fans all over the world will miss him, especially the City of Los Angeles.

I think @KingJames  will be the league’s MVP next season!
