Kenyon Martin's open letter to his son, KJ: 'It's go time!'

Kenyon Martin's open letter to his son, KJ: 'It's go time!'

Twenty years ago, Kenyon Martin was the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft. Now, his son, KJ, is in the 2020 NBA Draft. In his first article as a member of BasketballNews.com's staff, Kenyon wrote this open letter to KJ:

Dear KJ,

Where do I begin? 

I’ll start this by saying how proud I am of you. 

Twenty years ago, I walked across the draft stage, and now it’s your TIME!  

The work that you have put into accomplishing your DREAM has been second to none. 

It has been wonderful watching your growth to get here. 

The day has come!

It seems like yesterday that I laid eyes on you. My first born. My son. 

From seeing you jump in the pool to dunking on the goal, I was in awe then and even more now. 

You had a dream and followed it - now that dream has come to LIFE. 

You are an amazing person. 

Go and show the world what I already know. 

You were BORN and BUILT for this! 

The journey starts now. 

Don’t let nothing or anyone stand in your way to GREATNESS. 

I LOVE YOU. 

I’m proud of you. 

I will continue to be your biggest supporter.  
 
IT'S GO TIME!!! 

Love,
Dad

[UPDATE: Kenyon Martin Jr. was selected by the Houston Rockets with pick No. 52.]

Kenyon Martin will be launching his new podcast ("Neat and Unfiltered") on the Basketball News Podcast Network this Friday. KJ will be joining him as a special guest.
