Lakai is 6'5' young man with motivation beyond the sports level. He goes up above an beyond his potential to even buy his own basketball shoes....he works on a farm as well as mowing grass in the summers...He comes from a small town that the kids have minimal positive atmosphere to motivate them to be successful. With that being said he has pushed himself many days after school in non ~ basketball season to spend hours at the hoop to better his game and endurance. Many evenings calling his Dad Lionel to meet him for 1 on 1 game at the YMCA or the Park Court so he could show us his everyday improvement an takes much pride in it!!!That in itself speaks for itself.
