I was at the mall the other day and although I didn't see Kevin Durant, I did see this t-shirt for sale and fell in love. I have to admit I was a little disappointed I didn't think of it first. But, I quickly regained my composure and figured I'd re-design it with Swishh Dreams soul! As I brainstormed for the next couple days I recalled a few inspirations. First, and interview with Derrick Rose about his passion for the game:
"That's my life. That's what you not understanding. I would die on that court."
And secondly a video montage of Will Smith describing his keys to success. (I took the liberty of changing a few words to relate it more specifically to Swishh Dreams and basketball):
"The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is, I'm not afraid to die on the court. You might have more talent than me. You might be smarter than me. But, if we get on the court together--there's two things--you're quitting first or I'm gonna die. It's really that simple."
Below I put together the audio of those video clips so you could listen for yourself.
Most people, even many basketball players, probably think we're nuts for saying we would die for the love of the game. It's not common sense to put up shots into all hours of the night, play hurt or sick, or wake up after only a couple hours of sleep and work out, but us Swishh Dreamers, we've all done it. And I'm wiling to bet that every last one of us would do it again. In a heartbeat.
