Hi there & welcome to BdaKiNE.com 😁
As we honored our fallen heroes, we also gathered to celebrate the newest members of the Basketball Hall of Fame. For even the most accomplished athlete, induction into the Hall of Fame has got to be the pinnacle of their career and a thrill no matter who they are.
I always look forward to hearing the speeches because they humanize these amazing people who on tv seem to be somewhat untouchable. The vast majority of athletes come from humble beginnings and the common theme for most of them is hard work, determination, passion, and not surprising, mentors who believed in them.
The number one indicator of an adult’s success in life is the number of positive role models that she/he has as a child. All of these men and women have god given talent but it took a lot of support and sacrifice from others in order for them to succeed.
The speeches give these men and women an opportunity to tell their stories and also publicly recognize the people who helped them reach their extraordinary levels of success. I always cry during the speeches and this year was no different.
No one gets to the top alone and these Hall of Famers are no exception; I am INSPIRED by their talent as well as their humility, they BdaKiNE!
Thank you for visiting BdaKiNE.com & have a grateful day 🌞 Hugs, Lori 😘
