Two great quotes:

First, when Calhoun was recruiting him: "
“Are you a believer?” he asked, and she first thought he was talking about religion. “Do you believe in me? Do you believe in the legacy I've built here? Do you believe I can make your son an NBA player? Do you believe in your son?” The answers were yes. “So what are you going to do?” Calhoun asked."

Second, when deciding whether to come back this season:
"Voices that mattered urged him to return. His mother, grandmother and grandfather, and the Cowherds wanted him to get that degree. His father and Justin Cerasoli thought it wasn't a good draft for him to go. Finally, Tanesha, who had been on the phone all week with Daniels' father, told her son, “I was 17 when I had you and now you're 21; God found a way. I never had any money, so I ain't missing nothing. Go back and get all you can from Coach Ollie.”

I can't forget I how badly I felt for Ryan when he was told he couldn't play freshman year. I believe a slew of his friends and family were coming to see him play. Notre Dame? If I recall Calhoun wrapped his arms around a tearful kid. Such a disappointment that was. It seems he has a great extended family.

That was a great story, thanks for sharing Mr. Z. You can see the love and respect Ryan has for his family. He also has a great smile. I am definitely a fan of his.

I used to think boat was a bit angry, a chip on his shoulder, un-tamable.
He has proved me wrong on all counts. I love his passion, maturity and dedication at least as much as his mad skills.
