(TBT) Riding past my old office bldg... From 1992-'02 we were one of the best to "ever do it" in #SportsMgmt. Yeah... that #shit they teach at Univ. of SC and other schools curriculum is based on our
Yep, we lived it day-by-day... Found the Athletes... Built relationships with the Families.... Cemented the Draft positions... Did the Training... Taught 'em too Dress.. Speak well... Got their teeth right...and what a Budget & Financial Plan was and why its necessary... We bought the Homes... Cars... Jewlery... Furniture... Condoms... Set Up initial Credit Accounts and paid the Bills. We put 'em on Budgets, handled the Accounting and Paid the Taxes.
All this done and started by (3) men who had a Dream too change "The World of Sports Mgmt." We were and still are the (3) most knowledgeable and game-changing #Brothas too do that business. We became a threat too ... (IMG) (Drew Rosenhaus) and (Leigh Steinberg) because we did (3) Major Sports. N.F.L./N.B.A./M.L.B. all have our names...
And too think we made Millions... Our Clients made Millions and we became #PowerPlayers because #NoOne and let me repeat #NotADamnSoul controlled us but us. This dream all started with a single client...#MookieWilson who believed in us enough to allow us to manage him and away we went from there to the #Stratosphere of Sports Mgmt.
Since #TVOne got third-hand information I thought I'd give you #firsthand account of the #RealStory.
That's why I'm how I am today because I've been to the #MagicShow with these #Folks the #Billionaire #Owners and have seen all the #Tricks. It matters not which owner nor what Sport, they all abide by the same rule: "Keep Da' Niggas Out" meaning.. You can run and jump and catch and shoot and bat but when it comes too renegotiating that #MegaDeal or negotiating that #Blockbuster contract they want to deal with as "few" #Black or #Brown faces as possible.
Certainly, not those who aren't impressed, kiss ass, or do that #Monkeyshine Dance most Niggas do when the room is filled with Boss Billionaire Type-A Personalities.
So when I see Movies/Shows like #JerryMaguire and #Ballers I smile because there is Art imitating Life 4real.
