This isn’t even half of the accolades and achievement that our guest has, so make sure you tune in today! Nashville we present to you guys on today’s show Mr. Tim Gittens, Sr., better known as “Headache”. 🏀🔥 Hailing from New York City, Tim Gittens is recognized all over the world for his contributions to the game of basketball, whether playing or coaching. He is also known for his work off the court, as he inspires families and mentors youth. Tim Gittens was a collegiate all-star and had an impressive and extensive professional basketball career. Gittens had an opportunity to play in the NBA and also dominated on teams in the USBL, ABA, China, Iran, Puerto Rico, and England. Mr. Gittens vents today about having to be validated and accepted for the skills you already have as a black man. He talked about how it’s our own people that sometimes will shun us, disown us, or rob us from an opportunity to excel in our lives . Headache knew , however , that his faith is what led him out of those circles and into new ones . But he vented heavily on how we can be rewarded, have accolades, and truly be walking in God’s purpose for your life … but the support becomes damaging. We get torn down for “winning” or achieving in our own communities, but if we are living the various negative stereotypes that’s held above us, we oddly enough find a way to support that negativity .
