So last night I heard this radio interview with Kwame Brown’s high school coach. Brown was the high schooler who was picked first in the NBA draft. Anyway, it was pretty interesting. It turns out that he’s the second youngest of 8 children. His mom is partially disabled and has been raising them by herself since he was a kid, mostly on disability checks. He’s an honors student and could go to college, but is entering the draft for family reasons.
Anyway, the guy asked the coach to describe his character, and the coach said the number one thing that characterizes him is his faith in God. I think the host was a bit startled. Anyway, the coach said some people just will pray or thank God for show or whatever. But he said with Kwame, it’s real.
I dunno, I found that all encouraging.
