My cousin Lawrence Hill

My cousin has been the subject of much media coverage in his home state of AZ.

Before I go much further with this, let me explain that although I know that Lawrence in my cousin, he probably has no clue that I exist.  The last time I saw him he was “knee high to a grasshopper”.  Waay back during the season 1989-1990, I lived in San Bernardino, CA.  Lawrence’s parent’s Janet and Larry lived in Rialto (just down the street).  It was then that I got to know little-bitty Lawrence and his younger brother Lorenzo.

I left CA during May of 1990, citing irreconcilable differences with the culture of So. Cali.  That was the last time I saw the young soon-to-be college basketball star Lawrence.  I am as impressed as I am sure his parents are that he has been doing so well in school and on the court. 

Maybe one day I will be one of those loser family members that is the subject of discussions surrounding the unknown familial periphery of a sports star.  (what does that mean?)

I hope that when/if he decides to accept a well paid position as a member of a sports conglomerate, we don’t have to discuss my inability to accept the willingness of people to believe that an individual can EARN millions of dollars playing a game.
