The Season of Giving

I’ve always looked forward to helping my community out, dating back to my time at Wake Forest. I remember during my junior year at Wake, I dressed up as Santa Claus and had the opportunity to go into Winston-Salem households that were less fortunate than mine. We gave out gifts and things to help them through the holiday season.

Having been raised in Winston, that was a big moment for me. To give back to those people meant a lot.

A lot of them knew who I was and where I came from, and I think that made it mean more to them. Everybody appreciated that it was a hometown kid — a kid doing special things on the basketball court at Wake Forest — who was taking the time to visit with them and help them.

That’s when I knew it was my calling to give back.

How J-Ho Brightened A Dark NBA Offseason

As the 2014-15 season approaches, the NBA is as enthralling and popular as ever, but it wasn’t long ago that it endured one of its roughest times.

In the fall of 2011, the Association went through a 161-day lockout—an exasperating time for fans, owners and players. But amid that dark time for the league, Josh Howard provided a source of light for fans and players alike.

J-Ho holds celebrity All-Star games every offseason, but the 2011 event in Dallas was a unique celebration of the game.

Some of the league’s biggest stars were on hand—including Kevin Durant, Nick Young and LaMarcus Aldridge—and together the group put on an incredible show.

D-League Select v New Orleans Pelicans

Motivated By A Successful Summer

Welcome everyone back to my blog. The NBA season is fast approaching, and I’m excited about that. The experiences that I’ve had this summer have pushed me even more to continue to play.

Right now, I’m just in it. I love the game no matter what. It’s not about the money for me because I’ve made enough money in my career where I can walk away if I wanted to. I just want to continue to play and end my basketball career the way I want to end it.

The opportunity is there. A couple of teams have asked about me and told my agent they were pleased with the way I played in summer league. So for that to even be said from a team, with no negatives, means things are looking up.
