Proud to be an American

Here’s a little feel-good blog about a video I just saw on YouTube. As some of you know, the search for the next coach of the Chicago Bulls has begun. One of the guys on the shortlist is former 76ers point guard and Chicago native, Maurice Cheeks.

Along with being known as a great point guard and solid coach, Cheeks is known as just real good guy. Back in 2003, Cheeks was head coach of the Portland Trailblazers. During a pre-game, he came to the aid of a 13-year-old girl who forgot the words while singing the National Anthem, inspiring the entire stadium to join in to help. You need to check out this video on YouTube. It’ll make you proud to be an American.
