On Monday, I was honored to be presented as The Top Foreigner Athlete In Turkey. Such an incredible award. Especially during these down times. I found myself not understanding how big this award was until we entered the pre-ceremony meet and greet. I started asking Ilker Üçer(Fenerbahce's best Media Relations) if the award was just for basketball and he let me know that it was for all of the sports. That is when I started to get nervous and emotional. No tears but the love was definitely in the air.
Here I am thinking about an abysmal March on the court and losing the 4th seed... Then I think about the love that is being shown no matter what is happening on the court. This award helped me break out of the funk I've been in and that speaks volumes about my support group.
You never know who is watching. You never know which kid is learning from you and aspiring to practice like you. Make sure you move accordingly and smile.
Thank you for the love my Turkish peeps!!! You know the love is mutual...
