I was introduced to Marcus in 2007 through a business colleague of mine located in Chicago when Marcus decided to move to Houston. Being a huge basketball fan and former high school player I knew who Marcus was and since we graduated from High School the same year, I also knew he was rated the #1 player in the USA. So obviously Marcus’ successful basketball career as a player speaks for itself. However, after meeting Marcus and getting to know him personally, I was more impressed with who he was as a person, and his stated mission to giving back to the youth by not only teaching basketball skills but life skills as well.
