Standing on the court next to your favorite athlete that you have developed a trust with over the years is an unimaginable feeling.
Shaq's rookie season with the Orlando Magic at the Meadowlands arena. Watching this man up close and personal was an indescribable feeling.
Everyone talked about Shaq breaking down the backboard but imagine what it was like sitting under the basket.
I got the chance to witness the Devils win the Stanley Cup at the Meadowlands arena. If only you could imagine what I went through that night.
I had always dreamed of what it would be like to work for the NY Knicks. My opportunity came because of connections with the players.
It took many years to develop MJ's trust and when you get to know him he's a really cool guy.
