Hey Everyone, 
I am finishing up my last night here at Inside the NBA on TNT. I conducted a few tasks tonight: The first task that I completed was something that I surprisingly enjoyed – helping Charles pack for All-Star weekend. It was unexpected, and I got to get back to my fashion styling roots, something I used to do when I was an undergrad.

I then went on the set to teach Charles something in Spanish. Chuck had me hysterically laughing throughout the whole segment. I actually played a little joke on Chuck. He asked me to teach him “Charles Barkley is very handsome and Charles Barkley is very skinny.” Well, what I actually taught him in Spanish was “Charles Barkley is very ugly and Charles Barkley is very fat.” I have to give Chuck some credit because he knew that “gordo” means “fat” in Spanish, but I had to convince him otherwise.


Shortly after the Spanish lesson, I gave Chuck an early birthday gift. I got him an Auburn University golf set and he LOVED it. What actually touched me is that Charles took the time to read the card I wrote for him. After he read it he grabbed my hand and told me, “Thank you.”

I was floored. I was so honored that Chuck appreciated my words, my thoughts. That meant more to me than anything. Well, before I get too sentimental I want to thank Charles for being such a gracious boss, everyone that works for and everyone at Turner Broadcasting.

This was an amazing opportunity, and I will be forever grateful.

    Re: Undercover Cop

    Well, last year you did pretty good job as an undercover cop during the playoffs. Frankly, you said to Bob Costas that you were reflection of Michael Jordan-you picked the right team, but Michael Jordan got a credit for your thoughts.

    I am still at the village of Newtok, Alaska and NFL season is over, wondering if I need to get back to the NBA.COM. But I really don’t know how to get paid for making comments. I suppose I need an agent who specializes in this area.

    Well, if you happen to run across with Michael Jordan, please tell him I said, “Hi!” to him.

    Sincerly yours,
