Peace for Ukraine

I am praying for the people of Ukraine. I coached the national team and have many friends there whom I care about. I want them to be safe, and I hope for a peaceful resolution before more lives are lost. 🇺🇦

Today NBA players will pay tribute to MLK Day with “Dream BIG” shooting shirts and purple sneakers. Here’s a great quote from the inspiring peacemaker Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:  Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

On the Road with Mike

Earlier this summer I had the chance to see a legend perform. 86-year-old Tony Bennett put on a tremendous show singing hit after hit at the Memphis Botanic Garden. Tony mentioned that he’s looking forward to doing an upcoming album with Lady Gaga and said that he has great admiration for her. That should be an interesting collaboration. Can’t wait to hear what they come up with!


What do you get for the guys who have everything? I gave Ernie, Kenny, Chuck and Shaq supersized Czar Bars at the Inside the NBA holiday gift swap on Thursday night. I had these antioxidant-rich chocolate bars custom made for my friends using 72% cocoa solids so that they could enjoy a sweet holiday treat with health benefits. Of course, I don’t recommend eating the entire bar in one sitting!
