On December 27, 2015 Meadowlark Lemon died. If you don’t know the name Meadowlark Lemon please follow this link and read about his amazing career and legacy as one of the most famous basketball players ever.
I admired Meadowlark Lemon as a child. I loved basketball and spent many hours shooting baskets in my driveway and trying to emulate Meadowlark Lemon. I practiced dribbling the basketball between my legs, I learned to spin the ball on my finger and I dreamed of shooting the perfect hook shot.
This morning after my workout I noticed the gym was void of the many children that typically run around shooting hoops. I decided to take advantage of the moment and spent time running up and down the court shooting baskets.
During my time on the court I entertained memories of playing in my childhood driveway and the many things I learned from coaches throughout my childhood. It was a workout with physical benefits and emotional benefits.
