Dupree Update From Tampa
Right after the season I spent most of my time settling into my new house down in Tampa, Florida. I am about 20 minutes from my mom so she has been a huge help throughout my new adventure in becoming a homeowner. Who knew that furnishing a house would be so costly and time consuming? I am having fun with it and I thoroughly enjoy having my own space. Aside from spending time at home I have gone and visited some friends in other states.
Last week I had an opportunity to go to Chicago and spend some time with the staff from the Sky and do an appearance for Nike. I always enjoy spending some time with them and giving them a hard time. And I know for a fact that they enjoy it just as much! Right Ronnie? The Nike appearance was a lot of fun. A new Footlocker “House of Hoops” store just opened outside of Chicago. I was given a tour of the store and of course couldn’t leave without buying something. I’m a sneaker freak, so I enjoyed every minute of it. After roaming around the House of Hoops, I accepted a $5,000.00 donation on behalf of the Sky Cares Foundation from Nike. I also had the opportunity to meet and speak to Steven A. Smith, Terry Crews (the guy from “White Chicks”), Ron Harper, and a couple other former men’s basketball players. I always enjoy meeting new people and listening to there experiences as a basketball player.
To round off my weekend in Chicago I went to a Bulls game. I figured I’d go show my support since some of their players always come to our games.
With all that being said I hope all of you are having a great offseason. I can’t wait to get back on the court in Chicago this summer! I hope you all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
