In 1998 I gave up an extremely lucrative contract with MSFT to go and work — for free — as an intern for the Seattle Supersonics. My dream “job”.
That choice was a mistake. At least from a personal level.
But I learned some lessons from that gig I couldn’t have learned anywhere else….
That’s what I learned. Above everything else, that’s what I learned about life.
Passion is what matters. It’s what makes the difference between a forgotten has-been…
… and an NBA champion.
“He should,” Rivers said before the Celtics played Atlanta in Game 4 Monday night. “He really should. You look what they’ve done.”
For those who “understand”, if it wasn’t for Byron Scott, we (meaning true native fans of the Seattle Supersonics) would probably not be wondering what just happened to our team.
To fans of the Seattle Supersonics: We’ll have our chance to get our team back. In the mean time, let’s not take away this moment from a city that needs it more than we do.
Congratulations, Byron. You deserve this moment. Enjoy it.
