Guys that can drive the lane and dunk are said to "be able to finish with authority."
Well, as Damien Wilkins has so eloquently said in the recent DawgPost article, life is more than sports. And in so many areas, completing what you started, following through, staying with it, is the most critical component to success.
I'm proud of Damien for finishing with authority. He competed in athletics and he completed his coursework. He has established a nice career in the NBA and he has prepared himself for life after basketball ends. A lot of players never finish. They never get their degrees. Damien committed the time and effort to secure his.
