Being a Father First.
I’m a Two-Time NBA Champion, Eight-Time All-Star, an Olympic Gold Medalist—but my greatest accomplishment is being a dad. Many know my story on the court, but few know of my story as a father. In A FatherFirst: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball, I take you through my journey, as a kid who worked hard through the struggle to keep his dreams alive in Robbins, IL, overcoming adversity and making my way to the big stage in the NBA. But this is not just about a basketball journey; this is about a Fatherhood journey. In my book, I open up about things I’ve experienced that have never been expressed before. You’ll learn more about why I took the stand to be a responsible father to my two sons. As a single dad with sole custody, I’ve learned so much. It seemed fitting to share my story and lessons with the world and encourage other parents to fully connect with their children to be the best parents they can be. With my book, I hope to do just that.
Follow me on my journey as a Father First.
