The 2018 #NBADraft
is upon us. 60 young men will have the opportunity to do great things.
I still daydream about the @NBA
commissioner saying this about me - .
"With The 12th Pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, The Golden State @Warriors
select Irabor Okosun from @DukeUniversity
" 👏 .
*I soak it in all teary eyed😢😭, raise hands to GOD 🙌 in Thanks, Kiss 😙 and whisper in @MuboOkosun
ear "Mama, we made it", Give a lasting Fatherly Embrace to @FrancisOkosun
and step to the podium to receive a handshake from David Stern. Face the world, 📷s follow. Say Cheese (literally).
Put the hat on and proceed to Greatness* .
I mean....I would easily fit in as a #SplashBrother
. A two-way player such as myself😎 .
I could have had at least 4 rings by now...because if I was on the team in 2016, @kingjames
and the @cavs
would not have stood a chance. Respect to them though, overcoming a 3-1 deficit is the stuff of Champions.
However...injuries, and above all, a broken Nigerian system will not let me be Great. .
