Rave Reviews

As a basketball halftime performer and children's entertainer, I've received a number of stellar reviews and awards throughout my career. Through Hoopwizard in Brooklyn, New York, I've been able to go beyond my career as a streetball player and I am pleased to highlight some of my favorite testimonials and other forms of recognition I've received.
