Hoop Dreams

Do not place your destiny into the dreams of others.
“(7) Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. (8) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrew 13 NIV 7-8

Story
The basketball court is the place where I find my brother Kahim every day until the wee hours of the morning.  He loves to play basketball.  Kahim eats, drinks, and sleeps with that ball.  He is crazy about every aspect of the game. Kahim has hoop dreams.  At fifteen years old, Kahim was six feet six inches tall.  When he walked into a room, he commanded the attention of everyone. Kahim enjoyed the attention, but loved the game of basketball more.  The entire family rested in Kahim’s hope of tomorrow.  Kahim was all state MVP upon graduation from high school.

He graduated from college, a six foot nine inch, all American, first round NBA draft pick.  Being drafted by the NBA brought the promise of a good life with fame and fortune.  Kahim loved his success. We all wrapped our dreams around his dream for success. He loved the fact that he could support his family.  Yes, we all benefited from his generosity.  We all rode the wind of his celebrity.  We all had shirts that represented our relationship to Kahim (e.g., “Kahim’s mother,” “Kahim’s sister,” “Kahim’s brother,” and so on).

The entire family loved Kahim for everything positive he was doing.  We loved his drive, his character, his charm, and his willingness to meet our expectations for his life. Kahim never turned his back on his friends from the neighborhood.  Kahim’s friends never left the city, except for an occasional trip to the mall in the suburbs. His friends were loyal to the neighborhood and would never consider robbing someone from their block.   However, anyone outside of the block was fair game.

Kahim played basketball, traveled the world and participated in black tie events.  He had personal shoppers at the finest department stores where his suits were custom tailored.  Kahim’s circle of friends had broadened to include people of all races and socio-economical status.

Kahim began to change and appreciate the benefits of an honest living while not appreciating people who did not try to do likewise.  Kahim began to struggle with the possibility of his friends from the hood seeking to victimize his new circle of friends.  Kahim was changing.  Kahim was not the same person we had known from the hood.  Kahim found the Lord. He loved and appreciated God’s grace and mercy.
