    Nice find. Thanks
     
  3. It's going to take a while for me to not think KO means Osemele.

    Very cool story, thanks for sharing.

    Out of curiosity and I've seen it written this way by multiple posters.....why "KO" instead of "NO"? I know when pronouncing his name, it begins with the "K" sound, but his initials are still "NO"

    I may be completely wrong here, but I think the N is silent. His first name is close to Kerwin, which I believe is what he has gone by, and as mentioned the KO comes from his Twitter name.

    Got it - not a Twitter guy, so I had no idea. Thanks.

    Dryburn - that's what I was trying to "say" when I indicated knowing his name begins with the "K" sound. - insinuating the "N" is silent.

    I really hope this kid turns into a Babb 2.0 I get tired of hearing people say he is going to transfer at the end of the season for more playing time because this article shows life is bigger than just basketball.

    I lived in Africa for three years, and African families, take family extremely seriously. Therefore when Babb said they couldn't understand what Okoro was going through, he was correct. That was Kerwin's best friend and brother, and his dad had been struggling for their family his whole life. They are an extremely brave family. I wonder how they are supporting themselves now, with all this happening. It has to be difficult.
