The NBA playoff brackets are set. Out west, the #1 seed Golden State Warriors are facing the #8 seed New Orleans Pelicans. The picture above shows my former high school student, Justin Holiday of the Golden State Warriors, posing after a game with little brother Jrue Holiday of the New Orleans Pelicans. I know Jrue is healthy and is ready to play, but I’m not sure what’s happening with Justin on the Warriors roster. The teams face off for game #1 this Saturday afternoon.
As a teacher, it’s awesome to see former students do great things because I always hope there was something I said in the past that influenced some of that greatness. Maybe not, but who knows, right? Nevertheless, I’m proud of both of them and I’m excited to see what their future paths have in store for them.
