Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks at the TD Garden Game 40 Experience

Thank you to the NBA and everyone that was involved in considering me to be 1st place prize NBA All-Star 2018 Sweepstakes. God is good isn’t he I’m honored and blessed to have gone to any NBA game in the United States but I chose the Boston Celtics Vs Atlanta Hawks at the TD Garden Game #40 in Boston, Massachusetts. Thank you, everyone, take a look through my lenses all pictures and views are my own.

Never give up on your dreams you don’t know how close you are to your opportunity. From where I’m sitting my next step is the floor that’s all it takes is to be one step away before you throw it all away.

A few souvenirs we went home with a Jayson Tatum poster and a Boston Celtics 2008 world championship limited edition patch which was limited to 20,000.

Can you believe we paid $13.50 for 2 drinks this size? After the Celtics lost their game my nephew didn’t want his cup or anything representing the Celtics I told him he can’t be fake like that it’s just a game had Atlanta lost this game I would still love everyone the same. Growth.

One of the cheerleaders threw this to me which had the gift card wrapped up in the shirt.

I’m going to say they were praying to win and have a good game, God heard them but it just wasn’t in his will.

Kyrie was explaining this drawing and who it could be and it turns out it’s Gordon Hayward.

I came here to see Atlanta Hawks play.

I’m not sure what was going on, but everyone was looking but me.

Guard What’s In Your Area

What’s a Zone Defense? a system of defensive play in which each player guards an allotted area of the field of play and guards an opponent only when the opponent is in his area. Learn how to Guard your Zone.

First, we want to pray before we do anything a prayer for protection can go along way.

Q: How can you Guard your Zone not only in sports but with Defense Strategies you can use in your everyday life?

Q: What are some things you’re going to have to do or stop doing to Guard specific areas of your life? Are you sleep? This is a stay woke generation.

Q: How can you be on Guard? I’m my own personal security by drawing lines and setting boundaries I have the right to allow what I want and don’t want in my personal space.

Watch and pray and watch as you play to stay on point and be ready to defend. It’s ok to be defensive when it comes to you and yours.

Heres a list of things you can Guard

“If you don’t defend you can’t win” Philadelphia 76ers Assistant Coach, Jim O’Brien

“Anytime an offense player is a threat we take a step back and remain active to guard and protect our zone” Philadelphia 76ers Assistant Coach, Lloyd Pierce

“Stay focus throughout the entirety of a defensive possession” Dallas Mavericks Coach, Rick Carlisle

There are so many areas in our life we can guard I want you to pick the area where you lack the most and put more defense towards that area of your life.

Music Artist Young D of Wealthy Civilians putting on for Baltimore, Maryland

Ranisha: What makes you more valuable than the other artists in your same market? Do you feel like you have competition? Why or why not.
Young D: I think what makes me more valuable is that I’m unique. I’m coming with my sound and delivery and I’m building my brand and buzz all alone, as far as competition I’ll always say I’m my only competition but I know Rap is a competitive sport so you have to stay on your toes, because you never know what someone is bringing to the table.

Ranisha: Who is your audience & target?
Young D: My audience and target are pre-adults and up age 19- and up because I get a lot of love from that age group. I feel that my music can touch all ages anytime the elders in my family and kids under 9 can recite a song I know I’ve created something good.

Ranisha: How do you like to reach ppl when making a connection? Is it through social media or do you rather pull up on them?

Young D: Social media is definitely the wave now, but I rather pull up and connect with the people. You know meeting a person online is one thing but actually getting to know you in person is another. You never know the impact you’ll have on a person unless you make the connection.


Ranisha: What is your lifestyle like?

Young D: My lifestyle is very laid back, I’m humble but a hungry individual, a person that lives by morals and principles, and I’m a guy that grinds 24/7. On the other hand, I definitely like to indulge in a little turn up here and there ….. lol


Ranisha: When it comes to the music what kind of skills do you bring to the table? What is your expertise?

Young D: I feel as tho I bring something to the table that a lot of artists can’t bring, you know I’ve been studying the game for a while and I’ve picked up different tactics to perfect my craft that a lot of artist lack. As far as the music goes I can say I definitely can create any genre of music, even though my style is more soulful,  but when I’m in that studio cooking you never know what comes out of the pot.


Ranisha: Who do you trust with your legacy and what do you want to be known for?

Young D: At this day an age I trust my mom with my legacy. I mean who would be more trustworthy other than the woman who birthed you. She knows about me more than I do lol …. but when it’s all said and done though I’ll leave everything to my beautiful baby girl Lyric. Lyric will own it all. I want to be known for being an individual that started from the bottom and climb the stairs while others took the elevator. Showing the world that anything is possible as long as you stay committed.


Ranisha: What can you see yourself doing for your community in the near future? What will that take? Is that something you always wanted to see done as a kid?

Young D: In the near future I can see myself opening centers for the youth, parks, recreational centers, giving back to schools, holding concerts and donating the money where it’s needed in my hometown. I feel as though some of the higher-ups here lack that sort of thing. It only happens when a big situation has occurred and then everyone is a hero. When in reality a hero should have his cape on 24/7.


Ranisha: Tell us about your up and coming EP you are working on and your earlier project? What should we expect from this project in the works?

Young D: I’m currently working on my new Ep Titled “To Whom It May Concern”. On this project, I’m basically going for the throne lol. I’m creating songs that when you play them through your stereo or whatever you’ll say this kid is undeniable. That’s the impact I wanna leave on my listeners every time. If you heard my last project “So Much More” you’ll know what to expect.


Ranisha: What do you want to say to those who look up to you as a word of encouragement to keep going and not give up?

Young D: I want to tell anybody who looks up to me, Thank You, that’s first and foremost but I also want to tell them that if you have a dream or goal you’re trying to reach you don’t stop until you get it. Anything is possible. A wise man once told me that, “the day you decide to quit could be the day you receive your big break” so you have to stay consistent and keep working.


Ranisha: When collaborating with other people what is it you look for in a person? Do you want a different style from yours? What has to be different?

Young D: When collaborating with an artist I love when an artist brings a different style to the table, it makes the song more organic and unique. I just want the artist to be as hungry as I am while we’re working. If we’re both working at the same level, it’s no way we shouldn’t create an extremely dope project.
