This morning “The Funk” stood by my bedside as I woke up. No, I wasn’t frightened or afraid. Funk’s mission was to block my path with a “dejected mood.” No real reason.

Now, about the story
Former NBA star, Penny Hardaway, comes alongside his long-time friend, Desmond Merriweather to coach Lester Middle School Lion’s basketball team.
If it’s for you, rip the paper off, be encouraged, and beat the funk.
