Ron Harper

"Slam Dunk" by Clifford Oto

The Bulls' Ron Harper was my favorite basketball player growing up. I mean, of course I loved MJ, but there was something about Harper that made me always pick him when my brother and I played one-on-one on our driveway.

He has a stutter, and as a child it was more severe. I read this interview of him online, and I smiled when I saw this...

"Since I was 5 years old, kids been making fun of me. But then they go out to the court for recess and it’s like, ‘I want Harp on my team, I want Harp on my team.’ Nuh-uh. I ain’t playing with you."

You tell them bullies off, Ron.
