"It is never too late to live your dream"

The world of professional athletics isn’t an easy one. It’s a full-time commitment requiring personal sacrifice and a dedication to preparation. I began to form my incredible work ethic at a young age, spending time outside school and on the weekends practicing in pursuit of the ultimate goal: to compete at the top level as a professional Professional Athlete.


Drafted to the NBA in 1995 1st round draft pick for The Golden State Warriors. I played for  six-teen years, and now as a coach and player in The Big3 I want to share my experience passing my  knowledge, passion and love of the game on to you.
