Our family has been so blessed to see my husband have an 18 year NBA career. Out of all the teams he’s played for, he’s finally in New York…and not with the Knicks, I might add. There’s a new team in town; the Brooklyn Nets! Its been an amazing experience to be part of all the excitement and hype surrounding this team. I can’t wait for the season opener on November 1st against that other New York team!
My last trip there was pretty eventful. The kids were able to take a couple days off from school and come with me, which made our time there even more fun. We shopped a little, ate a lot, checked out Spiderman on Broadway, and went to two Nets games. I even had a mini photo shoot and interview with the New York Post! Fun times indeed!

“Behind The Bench” the National Basketball Wives Association recently held their annual conference in the city of Atlanta. Amazing can’t even begin to describe this event. Kristina Ratliff and Dee Dee Abdur-Rahim were co-chairs, along with our President Sandra Evans Short, in planning this awesome weekend filled with fun, love, and most of all sisterhood. After 18 years of my hubby playing in the league, this is surprisingly my first conference and first year as a member. So this experience was totally new for me. But I had the best time and bonded with some of the sweetest, most down-to-earth women you could ever meet. That’s me in the green.
