Thank you, Marcus, for your energy. You pick your brothers up when they’re down and make sure they never hang their heads.

Thank you, Sam, for having fun. Not since Boogie has the headband had so much swag.
Thank you, Tod, for living the dream and continuing your father's legacy.
Thank you, Alex, for your courage. The only thing harder than being on the court when the clock struck midnight must have been being stuck on the sidelines.
