When we first met and he introduced himself, my first reaction was “oh really, your name is Drake, like the rapper?”. To what, very seriously, he answered “the rapper is the one named like me”. Hmm…. Somewhere between arrogant and overconfident? Maybe…
But, from time, I learned better. Now, I can spread his story. Once I met Drake Reed, then Nothing Was the Same.
« As you climb, you should lift » – Drake Reed
Track #1. Tuscan Leather. « Self-explanatory, you just here to spread the story ».
Let’s share your self-awareness! How would you introduce Drake Reed, as a pro basketball player, as a person? What would you want people to know/ keep in mind about you?
Well, I would have to say basketball comes after who I am as a person. I’m a man first, with a strong family and solid background. As a ball player, I would say I’m much like my zodiac sign Aquarius, very much a free spirit with a random set of skills as I’ve had to play a variety of positions. I’ve had success playing a variety of roles which I have to accredit to my parents. My father, Carl Reed, has always been an entrepreneur and my mother, Daphne Reed, has always worked for top corporations.
So I learned to be a star player from my dad and a solid role player from my mom.
