Motivation: Reggie Jackson “#1 Pick of the OKC Thunder”
The motivation post is a new segment that we added to the site and we started this just to show appreciation to the people that motivate us. My first pick is a hometown hero that goes by the name of Reggie Jackson. I dont know Reggie all that well he went to a different school so i can’t really talk about anything other than what i saw from the outside looking in but we did graduate the same year 2008 and i do know that he was a hard worker and a great basketball player i mean i caught a few of his games and he really does this, he was alot better than most. I remember seeing Reggie in the local newspapers and there was a lot of talk about him, i respected that, then i found out he was going to boston college and that inspired me I was happy for him and also happy to see somebody from the city make it out, it was a great feeling. Time went on then i would see Reggie on ESPN leading boston college in scoring and really taking over things you know? things of that nature, at that point things got a little fake to me it got to the point where it was a little surreal to see that but then soon enough i watched the NBA draft and there he was! That news was big in my city and at that point i was truly inspired and motivated i mean it was crazy to see somebody you actually had contact with get focused and take it that far, my mindset changed after that day and i really started to focus more and see things a little more clear i really started to believe in myself and i made a promise to myself that i will be successful and also be happy at the same time. So if your reading this i just want to say thanks Reggie for the motivation i hope this lockout ends soon so you can get back to work and show them what your made of.
