A blast from the past
Hi Adam. I really enjoy the work you are doing. The discussions with those “fringe” NBA players are so well researched and reminds us that even the last man on the bench has an amazing story about his basketball journey. Keep doing what you are doing. HeavyD. (You may know me as your MJ book supplier).
