Oregon, Dale Davis, Basketball discussed on expediTIously with Tip 'T.I.' Harris


The new city. Roselle new jersey. When i got to school as a freshman everybody just thought i who participate in never heard them so. Football is my first loss. I played freshman football. They moved up the jv and the jv coach made me made me who so from never planned basketball to be in the worst play on. My team is a freshman in three years time being the number one player in the country and the way the reason why i was able to do that is because her heart. I work you know saying stayed in the gym like i aid. Slip drink basketball. You know what i'm saying. And i saw the success that i was able to have get into the league outta high school and then playing for sixteen years. You know what. I'm saying that my biggest thing. The reason why you know reason why i was able to play that long is because our had the perspective like somebody at a young boy trying to take take my job because i remember as a rookie coming in the locker room looking at dale davis in reggie miller and all them dues and thinking to myself like embedded in them. You know what. I'm saying. So i just always remember that and remember that the next kid coming behind me is gonna look at our air until i are hearing civilians that good. I'm going to take spot. So i took that same attitude into cannabis. You know what. I'm saying. So for me bro. Like a never satisfied. You got off the team like they always like bro. You got to really take a step back like acknowledge what you've built but for me is always always thinking of somebody coming right. What i'm saying so it is. Actually i think that. That's that's that's what i bought into cannabis to the point where like i'm not going to become complacent in my team not going to be complacent i think we arrived. And y'all work for this company. No more you understand what i'm saying. Like we gotta keep pushing this thing and especially because being a black company we gotta be ten times better than those other companies. Anyway you understand. What i'm saying. So i gotta i gotta be the attitude of the team. Everybody rate iraq man. You're doing a damn good job at must say I have question. What do you think about oregon Legalizing crack so. I'm announcing show. We open it up a mess shop and third but now it's crazy. Take one i mean to me man. You just think about it. Broke put in perspective. Like if i have a drug problem right. I need help. I don't need prison right so you send in jail because they choose to smoke weed or smoke crack. Open ever like to me once again. Is that free labor shit. That's the business side of the jail. Aso and i like about oregon is. They're very proactive. And they feel like they taught it. Move away from that. You know what. I'm saying. So i you know hats off to organ. We have a business oregon. You know what. I'm saying so. You can put up a legal crack house in oregon you can only do the distribute gas legitimate or. I don't think so. Because i don't think you could distribute it. I think that's what they lock you up. Fuck a band gap the legal vanda. I try well. Nobody should try it. But i'm just wondering unless you oregon. You know what i'm saying. You good to get caught with it. That's for sure desk crazy. Legal crack. House krakow's bro. Twenty definitely have a draft crack has got is she can mean and the ingenuity of the you know the drive in the wheel of someone who don't have no money in their pocket but find a way to smoke all day that she takes ingenuity best shit. Is there a talent. I mean i think it's a uso. I think it's a gift bro. If you wake up on e- every day and spend fifty dollars on credit still. How in the fuck can you net. Make it to the fortune five hundred. You know what i'm saying. Is you invite me what you've been exposed to expect of. Yeah man so. I think you know the the the the the best thing that i see you doing and sending an example. Send an example. I for young men who may have a skill or love for for sports like basketball but the seat on the other side of that career. You have to be have the forethought to know how to continue your legacy row. We special people men and we just to your point light is it's been four hundred years of keeping us down that we don't acknowledge that you know what i'm saying. Is you know when you think about all these other industries and inventions and different things like that. Bro was black people in the rooms. That's real you know what i'm saying but we never get another credit so they own never let us know hospice we are. We are brilliant. We ought original. You know what i'm saying. So i is is tough so now it's on us. People like to have a platform to continue to preach that to the youngsters learn. I'm saying we have to let them know like listen. This is our tom in america. We have resources you have support. You know what i'm saying meaning us. You know what i'm saying. And we have the allow. We have to continue to push them and start holding them accountable to be better. You know what i'm saying. I think the. I think we could actually do it. Because i've seen life is about are change. I've seen it. Life is about leverage. I mean like you said you you you have net only change those lives but you've you've had success that success gives you a certain amount of leverage. Use their liberty for what you to be good. You know what i'm saying. That's what changes were you saying. All of us have skills and talents and abilities and whatever it is. You know what i'm saying. They gives us a certain amount of leverage. And whatever it is we do use their leverage to affect the world in a way that it will benefit people besides us. That's what changed. That will keep pushing for sure. I mean and that what you doing. I appreciate it now. The you know Ambassador here at the end you know took long enough.
