Last Wednesday, 62 of our athletes gathered around their computer screens for the chance to talk with and listen to a former NBA player. Vladimir Radmanovic had a solid career in the league playing for teams like The Lakers, The Warriors, and the former Seattle Super Sonics…playing alongside Kobe Bryant was the greatest player to play with according to Radmanovic. All our hoopers were locked in and excited for the chance to ask their questions, many of them wanting to know who the toughest opponent he ever faced was; Ron Artest (Metaworldpeace) won that award! It was a unique experience for our athletes to learn about the hard work and desire that Vladimir put into becoming a player in the NBA and many of them shared the following day at practice that they enjoyed listening to him talk about his career and where it took him. We hope that this experience inspired our hoopers to know that with hard work and determination they can chase their dreams and be anything they want when they grow up!
