A PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE?
NBA basketball star Mike James made an appearance on the FOX 26 morning show Friday. He was there to discuss his basketball camp – The Mike James Experience. He said he wanted to reach young people to ensure they were headed for a bright future. The athlete also said he wanted to teach them how to become responsible adults and professional. James also said he wanted to teach the young people how to live a civilized life. But it threw me off a bit because he showed up for a professional interview on FOX 26 in a white t-shirt and blue jean shorts. Not sure if he had on flip flops or sneakers. But it may have sent a mixed message that he wasn’t professionally dressed to reach the youth. But then again I may be looking too deep into this. After all, he is a basketball player and the young people who watch may not get a mixed message. But his heart did appear to be throughly into the program to recruit and help young people in the community. Just a thought!
