The Giants I fought against in my life were not just the physical players within the game, but the obstacles I had to face each time I slid my feet into a pair of gym shoes, and walked out onto the court. My lack of height, lack of bulk, and my seeming lack of intimidating presence, all fueled the dismissive bias I routinely faced when the competition took their first look at me. How I met that challenge, how I drove myself with a determination fueled by a love for the game of basketball, and where that has all ultimately led me, is what this book is about.
I hope “Among the Giants” encourages you to never give up on your dreams. To not let the odds stacked against you, make you a quitter. To be looking for new opportunities and avenues in which to “tweak” your dreams & create something that is fresh and uniquely yours. As you read the following pages, take a new look at yourself. You may live in a land with different Giants than the ones that I struggled with, but you can still overcome and pursue a dream with everything that’s in you, creating a life that you will love. When it’s all said and done, you just might find as I have, a bigger and better dream than you started with.
