Durning this All Star Weekend the NBA announced they are partnering with FIBA to start an African Basketball League with 12 teams across the continent.
This isn’t a surprising move if you follow basketball. The NBA has marketed itself globally for the past 25 years and basketball is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, the league has focused tons of energy and resources in Asia and Africa as growing markets for talent and viewers.
The African league will start in 2020 and will unify existing teams in Africa as well as add new ones. It will also add financial resources and training centers. The focus on Africa is very similar to what they NBA did in Europe decades ago. The NBA has developed a heavy African influence recently due to an influx of Star players such as Joel Embiid, Mohammed Bamba, Emmanuel Mudiay and a list of others. The NBA has a plan to overtake the NFL in revenue and its based on global expansion.
We work hard so that we can grow up to be amazing ppl! So that we can leave a legacy for the generation after us. So that we can one day be able to put our integrity over money & not have to tip toe around telling the truth to the world. Not having to succumb to the opinions of others approval & to be able to come just an inch close to our human counter part! I've been working very hard for "The Preppy Family" to become the amazing company that it is for the past 5-6 years & I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I'm getting ready to build for the culture, I'm coming for the culture!
I didn’t always love the him in me. In fact, i hated myself and everything about me. In spite of how others may have seen me, i had a low self esteem. Insecurities accompanied me everywhere i went. It didn’t help that we were homeless during the most crucial time of my development. My new clothes were either 2nd hand from the Salvation Army, Goodwill Mission, or my brother and/or sister’s worn out clothing. I still have one of my sister Jean’s sweaters from over 35 years ago. Some time in the previous years back, my dear friend Coy gave me a poem entitled “Desiderata.” Its message has become essential for my emotional, mental, and spiritual maintenance and growth. I learned to accept life on its terms. Through continued counseling, positive energy, prayer, and a conscious change in my environment and those i allow near me, I began working at being the change that i wanted to see in my life. Now I’m no longer afraid of being me. For that I’m left with thoughts to share, “Change your perspective of how you see yourself. It will change the trajectory of your future.” Peace & Blessings! ❤️🙏🏾
