This is the easiest post to put, yesterday were the selections for NBA D-League and My brother has been selected for the Long island Nets, He was their Fourth pick, and Diwali all over again for us.
He is now only the second Indian basketball-er to play in the D-League, the minor division of the elite NBA, but sadly as is with every sport other than cricket in India the Indian Govt. just did not do enough to keep a talent like him in the country.
The Punjab Govt has been the worst, ministers and officials are busy filling their own coffers, not interested in welfare of sports Athletes, what a shame BUT never mind I think the best decision was to go abroad, hard work and lots of sweat was put in to reach this place, At least now he can achieve his full potential, Loss for Indian Govt. But then its ok they deserve it , and I don’t want to put a damper talking of our Govt apathy on such a milestone day and a HAPPY DAY..
I have so many pics and videos of him playing but sadly wordpress would not let me put videos in the post and I don’t know how to put them up.
From such a humble beginning he has achieved so much.. My best wishes to my brother and here’s wishing he makes us all more and MORE proud..
So Everyone please please Pray for him and send your blessings… next year this time hopefully MAIN LEAGUE 🙂 or am I expecting too much, I have told him he BETTER work his A__E off, last night, no matter what the MAIN league is the Target if not next year then 2018.. OH YESssssssss , I am already packing my bags to go visit and see Him in Action ..
So Watch out People Punjabi’s are in the House ..
CHAKK DE MUNDIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa…..
