READING YOUR MIND
NORTH CAROLINA-(BASN)-My college professor once told me that “you can learn a lot about a person from the books he has read or hasn’t read.” Therefore, we, at Blackathlete.com, created another segment entitled: READING YOUR MIND. In which, we have developed a book-list to rival Oprah’s.
1. Who Moved My Cheese by S.Johnson
2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days by J.Kinney
I really don’t know what happened in the Miami Dolphins locker room between Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin. But, I think, this book should be read by all in-coming rookies in the NFL before training camp.
3. Men are from Mars; Women are from Venus by John Gray
4. The South Beach Diet by Arthur Agatston
Newly acquired Miami Heat center Greg Odom could benefit from reading this classic book while in Miami, because he looks a little chucky after being out of the league for three years.
5. The Horse Whisper
With Peyton Manning under center, directing traffic and using a silent count, the Broncos could quietly make a run for the Super Bowl.
6. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by S.Iarsson
Even though he has no visual body art, OKC’s Kevin Durant has a huge tattoo of a Black Angel on his back. Plus, if he is tired of being second best. He has to release his inner Dragon and stop being a nice-guy and a “momma’s boy.”
7. Chicken Soup by Jack Cansfield and Mark Victor Hansan
Former Rutgers’ basketball coach Mike Rice needs a little chicken soup after getting captured on camera cursing, grabbing, punching, and kicking his players during practice.
Kobe Bryant might not want to read this book. But, he still is going to need a lot of help in order to win another NBA Title before he retires.
9. The Holy Bible
Even though, I know, Former NFL QB Tim Tebow probably already has one. He, however, might want to purchase another one, especially after getting cut from the NY Jets and the New England Patriots. Damn you, Tom Brady!!!
10. Runaway Jury by J.Grisham
Former NE Patriots Tight End Aaron Hernandez is innocent until proven guilty. So, while he is behind bars, he has plenty of time to read Runaway Jury and get his story together before heading to court.
