Timeless Dream for Wilkins

Apt description, and great article (couple of good pictures, too) by the New York Times on Damien Wilkins, who at age 35 started in Sunday's D-League All-Star game.

The Times, noting Wilkins' age and well-traveled career, with stops playing for the Seattle Supersonics, Oklahoma Thunder, Philadelphia 76'ers, Atlanta Hawks, Detroit Pistons, Beijing Ducks and the Mayaguez Puerto Rico Indios, quoted Wilkins as saying, "Ultimately my goal is to make it back to the NBA.  I want that more than anything, man."

Don't know if Damien will get another shot with an NBA team, but the lesson for us might be that whatever our age, whatever the obstacle, let's work hard at our dreams.  With God's help, may we all be all-stars in life.

Keep representin', Damien.
