Last week, Brad had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of being invited to the Rockets Shoot-around inside their private training gym. He was fortunate enough to personally meet some of his favorite players including T-Mac, Battier, & Scola. He & Erik Shoup were able to listen in on the coaching tips and defensive schemes for Wednesday's game against Seattle. One of their favorite parts to see were the players in a relaxed environment, just goofing around with each other. (Man, that Mutombo is a talker!)
It was through the planning of Dr. Marco, his PA Jerry Buchart & Rockets trainer, Keith Jones that it was made possible for Brad. Keith went to great lengths to make Brad comfortable, to introduce him to the players and he gave Brad all kinds of REALLY cool Rockets gear (warm-ups, shorts, hats, etc). We are so appreciative of all their efforts to make this happen for Brad....thank you Keith, Dr. Marco & Jerry...he had such a great time!!!
