  • At 13:56, the photo in shorts is ridiculous. It’s incredible how determined he was to live his dream, regardless of the circumstances.

  • I’ve hurt myself very often and way more dangerously but hearing you describe his injury didn’t make it sound that severe. How could he lose feeling for 30 minutes and more importantly how did his head falling on somebody’s thigh do that? I’m 16 and have broken my back twice. I’ve had surgeries on shoulder and have broken the main general area of each part of my body. Besides the legs and ribs. I’ve even broken half my face and have had 100 stitches on the back of my head. One of them a car boot got slammed on my head when I was little. I’ve also nearly been paralysed several times in my 16 years of living. Im even injured as I am writing this right now but what I’m trying to say is how could he get injured like that, I just can’t picture it in my head. Also I didn’t watch the part when they talked about what he was diagnosed in high school, which answers my question. I was also talking about the injury one week before the nba draft as I realised later on in the video, he had several more injuries after that

  • Damn bruh This brought tears to my eyes at the Thanksgiving dinner table. Everyone staring at me like a weirdo. I guess I know what I’m thankful for this year. Never take anything in life for granted. Thank you for taking the time to educate us, his legacy owes you and the 3.7 million people that learned something new about him from you.

  • I hate when these content creators say stuff like "Even though some people see him as a bust" Ok who are these people? I’ve never heard anyone of importance say he was a bust. No NBA analysts, commentators, his peers. No one.
