Matisse Thybulle's mother was his driving force, she was his role model. But she became sick and wasn't able to see him finish his goal. She died, and he had a choice, Forget the dream of making the NBA, or fight through the pain and heartbreak and make the dream a reality regardless. It doesn't matter what life takes you through, It doesn't matter what life brings you, or what life takes from you. What matters is that you "MAKE IT TO THE FINISH LINE". If not for yourself, for the people who pushed you to greatness. Trust me someones watching hoping you can fight through all odd's and leave a blue print on how they can possibly make it through something similar.
