The last time I followed NBA basketball was when there was a Bird-Magic rivalry. Celtics were nearly an all white team, and aside from Kurt Rambis (aka Clark Kent), Lakers had a black squad. So, I was pleasantly surprised to learn about Oakland native and Celtics basketball star, Leon Powe, during this years playoffs. Powe makes me proud to be an Oaklanese! Though a Lakers fan, I will support Boston just for Powe. It's my honor to present a clip discussing his struggles from Oaktown to Cal to the top of the NBA line-up.
