This week I (Guurl Melanie) got the chance to talk to St. Louis native and Houston Rocket, Small Forward, Ben McLemore.
To every kid currently growing up in St. Louis Ben McLemore is a symbol of success and a constant reminder that they can make it. In my opinion, Ben’s story could actually be a movie!
Here Are A Few Of Ben’s Accolades:
- Selected to St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s All-Metro Team (Junior Year)
- Placed 3rd in State (MO) with the Wellston Trojans (2010/ Junior)
- Ranked #17 nationally by Rivals
- Named to Big 12 1st Team All-Conference (2013)
- Named to Big 12 All-Rookie Team (2013)
- Drafted #7 to the Sacramento Kings
- Team (Houston Rockets) clinched a spot in the 2020 playoffs*
*The 2020 playoffs may not be played due to the Coronavirus pandemic*
2020 might not be the best year for everyone but for Ben McLemore and his family the end of 2020 is going to be great. Read the quote below and then watch my interview with future NBA All-Star Ben McLemore.
“Not having food for a couple days, no lights, no hot water, I knew we could always get that back,” McLemore says. “Taking my brother, I didn’t know when I could get that back. I don’t know when he will come back home. That was the worst feeling. And I am still feeling it. Each and every day.”
