We have a very special one for you today. I think all of you
probably know of him, have watched him play, and have followed his
amazing path in the NBA. I'm beyond blessed to be able to
call him a great friend and someone who I them exemplifies
everything good about professional sports and the way athletes
should be. Best role model in the NBA, one of the most
caring, giving, philanthropical players and just people that I
know. A guy who is the essence the an underdog story and
someone who plays for a great purpose than himself. Should I keep
the suspense building....???
The Game of Life Podcast welcomes Jeremy Lin.... We're about
to dive deep behind the scenes with Jeremy and join him on the
roller coaster ride that was Linsanity, learn his secrets of how he
improves himself every day, and a rapid fire round of questions
heard no where else than here on the Game of Life....
SPONSOR: MITCHELL AND NESS
Gotta tell you about our sponsor today - Mitchell and
Ness. The hippest, swagiest, just straight up coolest gear
there is on the market. It's what all the NBA players are wearing -
if you see basically any hat one of these players are wearing, it's
Mitchell and Ness. Any throwback jerseys, yep thats them too.
Basically if you want to take your gear game up another level check
out Mitchell and Ness. Steve Nash throw backs, probably even
get a J Lin Harvard throwback. Check them out at
Mitchellandness.com and when you pick out your swag game enter the
code NURSE at checkout and receive 20%
off your entire purchase. But, gotta act fast - offer ends July
15th. I'm telling you, if you want style this summer, and the style
all the NBA players are wearing, get on Mitchell and
3 pointer time!
I know I said I would do my top 3 NBA players of all time, but
we are going to postpone that a week and keep the feedback and
votes coming in (which I really appreciate the great response
I have gotten. Lot of MJ votes out there... we'll see... Keep the
coming at davidnurse05 on twitter, davidnurse5 on IG or hit me an
email anytime. Love to hear from you all!
With jeremy on the podcast and the GREAT underdog motivational
story that he is - we are going to go with the top 3 underdog
stories in all of sports (not including jeremy)
3. Kurt Warner - Undrafted and went from bagging
groceries at Hy-Vee in Iowa to winning the Super Bowl with the St.
Louis Rams. Actually played golf with him when he was playing
for the Arena League Iowa Barnstormers the year before he went to
St. Louis. (So basically I take all credit for his success
after he dominated me at golf)
2. Tom Brady - If you haven't watched the Brady 6 documentary,
get on that right now! It's the most motivational story of
determination, grit, and never letting anyone tell you that you
can't do something. From the 199th overall pick in the 2000
NFL draft to arguably the best quarterback of all time.
1. Steve Nash - Small, not overly athletic kid from the middle
of no-where Canada, overlooked by basically every college (one
scholarship offer from Santa Clara) No one believed in this
undersized mop-top kid. 2 time MVP, one of the best overall
point guards in nba history.
How awesome was that! I told you, Jeremy is just an all
around high level character person. The epitome of the
perfect role model for any kid out, for any person out there for
that matter. Perseverance and trust and faith in the Lord,
and I'll tell you what, you can do anything. And Jeremy is living
proof of exactly that.
Check out everything he is doing, support his foundation, just
join in on Jeremy's passion of helping to give back and genuinely
making this world a better place. I know it sounds cliche to say
that, but Jeremy is motivation that we all can do our part, as
small as it might be, but no matter how small it all adds

I'd love to hear from all of you out there. Seriously, hit me
- give me feedback on how we can keep making this podcast better,
topics you guys want me to focus on, any high level performers out
there that you think I should bring on - let me know and we'll get
them on. One of these episodes coming up here we'll do an
audience question and answer. That'd be fun. You know what,
the coolest thing about this podcast is it's not just me talking to
you, its US talking together. We're basically hanging around
campfire, roasting marshmallows, making us some smores, listening
to someone play the guitar that really isn't very good but we act
like they are. Yeah you know what i"m talking about. Anyways,
we're family - Game of Life family. Thank you so much for
listening and making this possible. Until next week - Hope you
all have a great week. And remember, it's all about the
David Nurse Game of Life signing off.
