It was my first game at The Q, and maybe even my first NBA game at an arena other than the Palace. It was a great experience just soaking up all that the Cavs organization does in and around the arena. Most of the time I was walking around analyzing their marketing, execution, and crowd participation. That organization is doing everything in their power to make their games an exciting experience. I would go into much more detail but for time's sake, I'll keep my analysis to myself for now.
The morning after the game, Ryan showed me around the Cavs $33 million practice facility. It was ridiculous. I thought the newly remodeled Pistons practice facility was nice, but this one is just that much better. Once again, for time's sake I won't digest too much on it. But I will say that the Cavs are doing everything right to keep LeBron after this season. If he decides to leave Cleveland, it would not be because of anything the Cavs did or did not do - that's for sure.
Here's a sneak peak into LeBron's locker. He had some exclusive LeBron VIIs in colorways I haven't seen before. They were nice, but still nothing compared to the custom MVP sneakers he received from yours truly, haha.
This room kinda blew me away. This is where they have all the trade, free agent, and draft info mapped out. Once this season ends I'm sure they will be spending a lot of time in this meeting room not only preparing for the draft, but also to consider all sorts of trade and free agent dealings. Hopefully that does not include LeBron?
Thanks a bunch to my dude, Linney, for not only showing me around but also for allowing me to crash on his couch. He had some great stories (most of them involving Shaq, ha). All of the Cavs people I met were cool as heck. Coach Brown is a great guy. I sincerely hope the best for the Cavs this year, and more importantly: next year (Bron Bron).

Here's a quick video put together by Sizz (SizzleNation.com) from the JBiZzNys concert back in his hometown of Ionia. More pictures from the evening will probably surface sooner than later. There was a strong representation of the T.Way 'We Run WMU' shirts in the crowd - which was real cool considering it was hours away from Kalamazoo.

My vote for worst logo is a tie between the Big West and Big Sky conferences. They are just plain ugly and look like clip-art. My favorites are: Big East, Mountain West, and maybes for the SEC and SWAC conferences. If I absolutely had to pick a favorite, I would have to give it to the Mountain West conference.

The design inspiration behind these is a collage of all of our inside jokes. Actually we had so many inside jokes that I couldn't even fit them all on the shoes, so I had to pick the funniest of the funniest. The gold color scheme is obviously in celebration of her Golden Birthday, and the white patent leather adds a little more shine. The other part of the gift was a custom built display case in which she can show off her greatest birthday gift EVER to anyone and everyone she knows.

There is not doubt that times are very tough for a lot of people, including myself and many others I know. Every time money becomes such an anxiety, I have to take a step back and remind myself of not only what is truly important in life, but also that as long as I am doing God's will for me, he will provide all of my needs. It may not be all of my wants, but it will be all of my needs. I encourage those of you who may have been laid off, or even for the college student that is stretching their loans and working 25 hours a day, although money may be important in this life, it is not the most important. Do what is right and things will fall into place and be provided for you.
There have been multiple times when I was literally down to my last $100. And yes, I would panic about it, but then a calming sensation would come over me as if I was protected. I wasn't getting any bail out money, but I knew I would be provided for. For example, Tayshaun Prince's sneakers bought my college textbooks for a semester and a couple months of rent. Tayshaun had no idea that those sneakers that are now sitting in his home office played that important of a role in my life - but I bet someone upstairs knew. If I was to look back at everything that has happened to myself and this business, I could easily connect the dots and see where and why things had happened the way they did. Believe me, it is not fate. Each and every one of us has a path laid out in front of us, and sometimes all it requires of us is to take that first step of faith. So I encourage you to do so today. Do not worry about the money or stresses of life; instead, just take that step of faith and it will be provided for you.

The evening's venue: Warriner Hall
Mike Posner and myself (T.Way). Some people say we slightly resemble each other??
I ran into David at the concert, and guess what he was wearing?! GVSU Sweetness.
One of the lucky fans that caught the T.Way 'We Run CMU' shirt
