Ever remember your first major interest? In my case, it was cars. When I was five years old, I was identifying every car on the road. When I was seven years old, I began a habit of going to auto shows every year.
I knew I was passionate about it.
By the time I turned eleven, I got into basketball cards. I started putting the cards in numerical order. I started memorizing statistics. I would buy a Beckett’s magazine to find the find the value of the cards. That’s when I learned about the draft.
Speaking about the draft, Dante Exum clearly has one main passion.
This is the second time he’s been found at a Laker game. Like a lot of games this season, it was a relative blow out early. The Lakers kept it close into the 4th quarter, but the Spurs played lock-down defense, and came away with the win. Still, that doesn’t stop Dante from showing up at Laker games.
Maybe Dante Exum is studying the NBA game. Maybe he’s a loyal fan to the Los Angeles Lakers. Maybe he’s trying to find how he can help the team. Maybe, there’s purple and gold in his blood, and he’s found a new home. Maybe, he’ll end up wearing the purple and gold after the 2014 draft. Maybe, he wants to be a Laker legend.
