JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
I had a conversation with Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, N.C.) boys’ basketball coach Keith Gatlin recently about what it was like playing with the late great Len Bias.
For those who don’t know, Bias was an All American at Maryland who died of a drug overdose shortly after being drafted No. 2 overall in the 1986 NBA draft.
Some say Bias could’ve had a “Michael Jordan-like” impact.
Gatlin was one of the players that found Bias the next day and he talked about how important it is for kids to make the right choices in every aspect of their lives.
Sure you’ll make mistakes, but, as you get older, minimizing those mistakes and learning from them is the key.
