I Love this Bismack Biyombo Kid

A statement like that may sound kind of strange to some of you, but if you hear me out on why I think some of you will understand. A lot of you are probably like me. You were good at the sports you played, but you were never great; you were not the go to guy. That didn’t stop you from playing though.
