I walk into the Bagel Factory this morning to pick up my sandwich and I see a familiar face sitting in the corner and noticed it was him. I walk up to him, introduce myself and congratulate him on his success so far in the NBA. I tell him that I direct a basketball camp called Sky High held at Conestoga High School about a mile away from where we were. I told him that we try and get a speaker to come to camp every year to talk to the kids but have been unable to book one so far. I ask him that if he has time in his day to come speak, it would mean a lot to the kids. He told me he was headed to a yoga class but he may be able to do it.
I wrote the address of Conestoga High School on a piece of paper and gave it to him. I didn’t put my contact information on it at all. I just said if you can make it that would be great and if not thank you for the consideration anyway and good luck with everything. Half way through the day, as I was trying to explain the next activity to the camp, in walks Mason! Absolutely made the kids day. He spoke for 20 min about the importance of academics as well as hard work to achieve anything in life. He also took about 15 questions….Days like this is why I love doing everything I do. For those kids, it’s an experience they will never forget! It says a lot about Mason that he would take time out of his day to come do something like that out of the kindness of his heart.

And while Lillard said the news of his exclusion was expected, Plumlee admitted he was a bit surprised he didn’t earn an invitation to try out. The Blazers’ starting center has played for Team USA each of the last two summers, competing on the 12-man group that won the gold medal at the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain and earning an invite to the 2015 USA Basketball Men’s National Team minicamp.
