Hello everyone! I'm coming to you a little different today so I hope you like it and appreciate it. As you all know with my Foundation (H.O.P.E.) I express the importance of education for our kids of today as they are definitely our tomorrow and our future. Well, guess what -- I am practicing what I have been preaching. And that is the strong belief that getting an education can take  you much further than anything, and very important to your growth as person. As of tomorrow,  I will be starting classes again as I have enrolled at LSU to get my Masters in Business. That's right -- I am in the MBA program back at the great Louisiana State University. It will be a big challenge for me, but it's definitely one that I look forward to as well as embracing. Learning is so important and I'm thankful for this opportunity to enhance myself as well as those whose path I may cross. The kids are our future, but that doesn't mean that we stop learning and stop bettering ourselves. It means that we keep growing and getting better right along with them to be able to help them, go along with them, and feel good enough that you let go and let them pave the way. This universe has a way of continual moving forward no matter your age.  We can not do it all alone. We have to continue to help others get better, but also work towards bettering ourselves. I am so excited about starting school; knowledge is power, and sharpening your mind is never a bad thing! Stay tune everyone and I'll let you know how my first week goes as well as give you some basketball updates as well.
Until next time...

Hey everyone! I want you all to help me spread the word about this event I will be pushing in my hometown community. This is simply a way for my family and myself to show that that we care -- not just for those in a little need, but the entire community as well.

Although I am in Russia, my family will step in for me as well as Rev. Hurst and his church. I am so thankful for this opportunity to spread a little HOPE. But more important to reinforce that we all need a little help at times as well as to instill some HOPE, love and enthusiasm back into our communities that may have been lost. I encourage everyone to come out:

Saturday,  Nov. 23rd for my  "An Assist of Hope" at the Oakland Baptist Church in Kenner, Louisiana from 11 am until 2 pm...the entire community is invited and it is free to the public.

This is near and dear to my heart and we HOPE that it goes as well as I anticipate. Come on everyone -- please help me spread a little HOPE during the Holidays!



Well, well, well -- here we go again as another season for me tips off. I have been here with my new team Orenburg for about a week and we have already played our first game. We did come out on top which is a great way to start things off, but we are still missing a key piece to our puzzle. This season I will be playing with Glory Johnson (WNBA Tulsa Shock) and Dewanna Bonner (WNBA Phoenix Mercury). Both Glory and I did our best to hold it down until Dewanna arrives, but our team that we have this season is a very good and talented one. We have a very talented Spanish guard, a talented small forward from Greece, and some fierce Russian players and competitors. I am happy to be a part of this group. So far it has gotten to a great start, and I am looming forward to it, getting even better.

Stay tune everyone there will be more to come...
