I'm such a proud dad! My little guy @walkerbball34 booked his first job this summer modeling for the @calvinklein kids campaign-fall Greatness doesn't start when you accomplish something, greatness occurs when you first put yourself in the game #hesonhisway #thefirststep #calvinklein

We focus on so many issues in America but it seems that a lot of our problems could be helped if we just put more money into education!!!! Why is it that or schools look the same way now that they did when I was in school. 😳With all the technological advances that have occurred in the world, yet we have left the classroom looking the exact same. 🤷🏾‍♂️ Our kids need better technology in the classroom. We need to pay our teachers better, school lunches should be free and every child should have the same access to a great education regardless of what neighborhood they live in! . We need to spend our money on our kids!! I guarantee you it'll decrease a lot of negative issues we develop in our communities! If you're in the Miami area come on thru folks and help me raise money so we can build more computer labs in South Florida middle schools and schools all over this country! #loewsmiami #miamibeachgolfclub #rayofhope @betsydevosed @miamischools #forethree #fore #golf @bettinardigolf @gfore @jumpman23 @taylormadegolf @nomad_customs @grown

Oh what a night! The love that I felt last night was truly incredible! Thank you everyone for your messages and well wishes! I truly appreciate and cherish each one of you that has supported my career no matter which team I played on, whether we won or lost a game, made the playoffs or not, you always believed in my abilities and kept me working harder. To all of my fans around America and the world, THANK YOU!! #standinginthehalloffame @hoophall #HOF @chrisbosh #AlonzoMourning #BernardKing #davidfizdale @dofficialmutombo @stevenash @realgranthill @iamtinathompson #dinoradja #charliescott

Yesterday was such a special day! I was in the presence of so many old friends and I certainly met a lot new ones. I am forever indebted to the game of basketball because it has taken me on some incredible journeys! Thank you to everyone again who has traveled with me on this marvelous ride! Whether friend or foe this game has taught us all that competition enrichens our soul and makes us all better people. @hoophall #springfield #nba #uconninthehall #ohtheplacesyoullgo #goodtimes #HOF #basketballhalloffame #mocheeks #scal #jkidd #granthill #stevefreakinnash #billrussell #katiesmith #tinathompson #rickwelts #rodthorn #charliescott #leftydriesel #orawashington #dinoradja #shareefabdurrahim #jimmygoldstein

What an incredible journey I've been on!! Tomorrow my days on the hardwood will officially be commemorated by an induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame!! Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever imagined this happening to me! What I've learned is, no matter what the task is at hand you have to commit to it and never give up! And around every corner there's someone that doesn't understand you or your mission, so what they will do is try to distract you or confuse you from your process. Don't let them succeed!!! Be stubborn about your mission and your goals. Don't let your friends or your enemies keep you from your greatness. I'm walking into a place tomorrow because I wouldnt give up on myself or my mission. There will be times where you will have to choose your mission over your friends or even family. Your friends will wonder why you don't hang out with them more! You will say, "I gotta put this work in". If they love you they will understand! If they don't understand, well now is where your challenges begin! And that will be your first stepping stone to become great at whatever it is youre gonna do in life! Thank you to every person that's ever encouraged me to go get it! You all know who you are! I'm not where I am without the incredible people in my life that have continued to show me the way! @hoophall @jumpman23 @uconn @uconnmbb @uconnwbb @bucks #Sonics @celtics @miamiheat #HillcrestHighSchool @nike

It's not personal! If you have nothing to hide then let the process take place! I'll trust you but I will also be watching your actions #facts #truthispower #trust #speaktruthtopower #reagan

On this day, Sept. 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland, the act that started World War II.

The day before, Nazi operatives had posed as Polish military officers to stage an attack on the radio station in the Silesian city of Gleiwitz. Germany used the event as the pretext for its invasion of Poland.

The New York Times article about the invasion included a report of the Gleiwitz episode as well as Chancellor Adolf Hitler’s proclamation to the German army, which portrayed Germany’s action as one of self-defense: “In order to put an end to this frantic activity no other means is left to me now than to meet force with force.” France and England declared war against Germany on Sept. 3, but neither country was prepared to fight and would not deploy a significant number of military forces until the next year, leaving Poland alone in its defense.

Although it had an army of more than 700,000, Poland was unprepared for Germany’s blitzkrieg tactics. Its army could not deploy its troops quickly enough to defend against the more powerful German forces. As a result, many civilians lost their lives.

Any hopes of repelling the invasion were dashed on Sept. 17, when the Soviet Red Army invaded from east. By the end of September, Germany and the Soviet Union had control of the country. The last organized Polish resistance was defeated on Oct. 6. The United States of America didn't enter the war until after Pearl harbor was bombed by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. #history #facts

“You know, anyone can make a name for themselves in this reality TV age, especially in today’s politics,” “If you’re loud enough or controversial enough, you can get some attention. But to make that name mean something, to have it associated with dignity and integrity, that is rare.” (Obama) It felt so good to listen to President Obama speak again!! The country has really missed you @barackobama Thank you for your remarks about John McCain and certainly for inspiring us as all, as all of our leaders should be doing. I didn't agree with everything McCain did but he certainly was an American Patriot and he made us a better country for his service. RiP Senator! #obama #clinton #bush #wordsdomatter

Today I had it going out on the links!! tied the course record at Concord Country Club! This was my best round ever! #63 #golfingmyball @taylormadegolf

To me confidence is the greatest attribute we can carry with us at all times! on the other hand, arrogance is one of the ugliest! No matter what happens to us in life we should always know who we are without making others feel less of themselves! You don't need to fake it to make it nor do you always need to be the best!! You just need to be who you are unapologetically at all times and love it!! The truth is, you gotta be yourself because everyone else is already taken! #beyourbestselftoday
