In kindergarten, I failed math when they asked me to count to 99. Why? Because I answered, "Gilbert Arenas, Tracy McGrady, Stacey Augmon, Allen Iverson..." all the way to "George Mikan". On the flip side, I aced the alphabet when I went alliterative, "Alaa Abdelnaby, Bruce Bowen".....all the way to "Zeke Zawoluk".
Let's just say that basketball has been part of my life for quite some time!
