The Game of Warriors

Attached is a great article I read about the Warriors staffers playing annual pick-up games against the San Quentin Prisoners (Warriors). I thought this was an awesome story, and an article I really enjoyed. It makes me happy that the Warriors do this, and something I would like to do one day.

“You’re just empathetic,” Myers said, trying to explain his feelings. “You don’t judge because you can probably trace to where (all their problems) started. Unfortunately, many of these guys didn’t start with the same opportunities. It’s sad. They probably don’t feel like many people care. So we do this to let them know people do care.”

“I thank God I went to prison,” ATL said, wiping away tears with the back of his thumb. “I wouldn’t be the man I am today. I’m way more humbler than I was. The arrogance I had, the pride. God used this situation to build character, to build me into the man I have to be. I’m just so blessed.“
