Depression

Being born with a birth defect I faced the overwhelming feeling of depression at an early age.

I began to look at both sides of my family and I soon realized that I was the only one who was born with a cleft lip and palate.

So the big question popped up in my head, why me?

I took this question to my Great-Grandma, Annie Mae Hardy and she told me that God don’t make mistakes and that I have purpose.

I’m alive today because my family spoke life into me, not despair.

So when I get depressed, I quickly speak life into myself, I think about my journey thus far, I think about my journey moving forward and all life has the offer.

Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons

This year I want to incorporate a few hot-takes, trade scenarios, and fantasy sports aspects to my blog.

To kick it off how about a NBA blockbuster trade scenario.

The trade would send Anthony Davis from The New Orleans Pelicans to The Philadelphia 76ers for Ben Simmons.

From a Philadelphia standpoint this makes total sense, who would stand a chance against Davis and Embiid for the next 10 seasons?

Incorporate a serviceable point guard into the mix and boom, top seed in the Eastern Conference for the next decade.

You would have an incredible big 3 with Butler, Davis, and Embiid, this would be box office!

With The Pelicans and Simmons you would build around him with a fast pace offense which would include the likes of Jrue Holiday, Elfrid Payton, and Julius Randle.

Not a bad lineup if I say so myself, it makes total sense to me, what say you?
