BREC in Baton Rouge has announced plans for a one-of-a-kind basketball camp for young people. The camp is expected to be staffed by current and former NBA players, former LSU greats, and high school and college coaches. The list of staffers includes Dale Brown, Garret Temple, Ricky Blanton, Ronnie Henderson, Jermaine Williams, Ronald Dupree, Tazim Mitchell, coach John Brady, Darnell Lazare, Collis Temple Jr., Collis Temple III, Tyrus Thomas, Howard Carter, and more.
When the Bulls signed Garrett Temple, the free-agent acquisition didn’t move the needle much for some. The well-traveled veteran arrived with modest expectations. Now that Temple has exceeded those, showcasing his reputation as a glue guy at both ends and veteran leader, some surprise has followed. Tyrus Thomas isn’t surprised. “Garrett is one of those special dudes, man,” Thomas said in a phone conversation. “He’s just that guy that everybody loves and that guy who makes everybody around him better.”
Tyrus Thomas: “Unlike a lot of the guys in the NBA, including myself, he actually has family and the foundation where he’s not the savior for the family. He understands a lot more than we did. He always was more advanced just in the sense of rationale and logic as opposed to guys like me and Glen who grew up in survive mode and we’d sometimes be irrational. So I was just so happy for him because I knew he’d be able to handle it and enjoy it the right way, as opposed to some guys who have to try to figure out ways to change the trajectory of their family. His family did well for him and by him. He’s always been a well-rounded guy.”
