Swain Basketball Academy Accepting Registrations

The Swain Basketball Academy is now accepting registrations to develop your student athletes Individual development and training through group training, team training, basketball camps and shooting gun workouts. They are committed to small one on one development as well. What makes the Swain Basketball Academy stand out as a staple Atlanta training facility? I would have to say it’s the passion and drive of it’s founder Robert Swain.

In case you are not familiar with Robert Swain’s principles. Players are welcome to all different skill levels who have a desire to learn, train, and compete in basketball. Courtcred.com describes Robert Swain by saying the following:

A three-time National AAU champ with the Atlanta Celtics, Swain averaged 29 points, eight rebounds and five assists during his senior year at Tri-Cities High School. Regarded as a Top 50 recruit, Swain committed to UConn and rounded out a recruiting class that included McDonald’s All-Americans Taliek Brown and Scott Hazelton, Caron Butler and Johnnie Selvie. The following year with the additions of Ben Gordon and Emeka Okafor, UConn won the Big East Championship and made it to the Elite Eight. However, minutes were scarce for Swain in Storrs and he transferred to the College of Charleston. He played two season for the Cougars before graduating and then finally playing professionally in Europe.

During his time back home from overseas Swain would hold free training sessions for the kids in the community. These sessions would fill up with about 70 to 80 kids. But it wasn’t until Swain hit rock bottom that he realized his ability to motivate and help others get better as a real gift from above. Swain got himself into some legal issues and had to serve two years in the federal penitentary. Having felt like he lost it all, it was basketball and his relationships developed through the game that kept him sane. His former head coach Jim Calhoun was the recipient of many collect calls and answered them every time. To keep himself occupied, Swain began to train prisoners and came up with the business plan for “Swain Basketball Academy” during a stint in solitary confinement. The company’s current slogan, “Own Your Moment,” came from behind those walls.

Today, The Swain Basketball Academy offers two different locations where your child can be properly developed.

Reginald Greene is your answer to a personal injury

Stefon Wilson (actor) and Reginald Greene (Superlawyer) left to right

Reginald Greene known as the Super Lawyer is your answer to any personal injury, slip and fall or tractor trailer accident. I’m sure you have heard the commercials. Recently, I ran into him at one of his many events that he sponsors and there was even a drink on the Courvoisier menu named after him.

With so many billboards, advertisements and radio commercials I’m like “Who is this guy the Super Lawyer?” Well, I asked one of my personal friends and she said  he is the guy who gets people a whole lot of money when they get into an injury accident. But I was still curious as to what makes the “Super Lawyer” different from everybody else? Then I googled to find some more articles and realized this guy is also pretty smart. I read some really good information he gave about why people don’t call from the accident scene right away and according to Rolling Out Reginald Greene said the following:

One of the biggest misconceptions people have is that they should be concerned if they don’t have medical insurance. The last thing you should be worried about is ending up with a big bill if your insurance is not active.  If you need to seek medical attention in the case of an injury, you should. If you need to get there by way of ambulance you should call that ambulance. A great accident attorney would make sure that you are not even billed for anything until all your treatment is completed and it’s determined who’s fault the accident is. We will go after the other person’s insurance company and make sure they pay for your medical bills, lost wages and anything due related to this accident. It’s very important you make sure you are not the person at fault.

When you seek medical attention from the emergency room, be careful of the advice you are given. Accident victims need immediate attention. If you are told to take medication and call your primary doctor in two weeks, you don’t want to let things wait that long.

More Unecessary Shootings!

cap

About two days ago July 20th at 7 am in the morning in Capitol Heights, Maryland  a man was senselessly murdered by an ignorant individual. The police are saying that this shooting was a homicide and are still looking for a suspect. Apparently what happened is this man had just finished pumping his gas and this boy walked up to him and shot him. The man was 68 years old and later died at the hospital from his bullet wound.

This really bothers my soul. We are sitting here worried about another race killing us but we are overlooking the things we do to ourselves do to ignorance and fear. But blacklivesmatter, right? So let’s start with fixing the brokenness within us. That is where everything will start because of course people and other races are going to see how broken we are and use that against us because it is a weakness.

So many people are claiming to be woke but are you really? Because the enemies right now are ourselves. Pray for this family pray for the world because whether he had motive or not that was someone’s father, dad, uncle, brother, or cousin.

We have to do better. The bloodshed is ridiculous and people’s mindsets are all over the place.

A.J. Bohannon, a Black Lives Matter activist who once watched his cousin mistakenly get gunned down by police in 2012, had gathered more than 1,000 other activists to march through the streets of Wichita, Kansas on Sunday afternoon. But that plan changed when he received a call from Wichita’s new police chief just days before the scheduled event. The new idea was to hold an event where police and protesters could effectively come together to ease the tensions that have risen in the wake of recent police shootings in America.
