Here's A Poem By Rashad McCants You Might Enjoy

We received this from reader Jake, as part of our call for responses you've received from writing to athletes. (Keep sending those in, by the way.) It doesn't quite fit, so I still wanted to share it with you.

According to Jake, this poem hung on the wall at a Twin Cities-area youth center and dates back to the KG era, so the overlap puts it around 2005-2007. When the youth center remodeled, Jake naturally took the poem home. Now it's the world's.


It draws inevitable comparisons to C.J. Leslie's 2011 opus, "She Finally Came."
