I think it’s impossible not to like Fred VanVleet.
You want to talk about a guy that stayed the course, put his head down and just made good things happen for him? Look no further than Fred VanVleet.
I respect the shit out of repping the place/people who raised you. Bigger places like Chicago AAU came calling to pluck him out of Rockford but he stayed not worrying about if it was affecting his future or not.
He came up short at Wichita. He came up short on Draft night in 2016.
And now he comes out of it all as an NBA Champion shouting out his city on ABC.
Good for Fred and good for fucking Rockford.
Half off admission at Magic Waters tomorrow indeed.
UPDATE: This was the scene in the 815 when the Raptors won
