Inspiration is something that we all need. No matter how old we are, how young or what our chosen career path is, inspiration and motivation is a big part of success. One man, Eric Thomas, knows this and has made a career out of helping to motivate and inspire others.

Eric Thomas is known as The Hip Hop Preacher. He inspires, he motivates, he educates, and he lifts up not only his community, but also young kids. His aim is to light a fire within people to help them achieve their greatest potential. He travels all around the world to speak to groups about becoming high performers and in turn they inspire those around them through their success. He has helped to empower Fortune 500 companies, organizations, schools, students and more. But what happens when the people you are trying to inspire don’t want to hear it? What are you supposed to do then? Well, this happened to him while on the road.

While he was visiting a school in St. Louis called Vashon High School, in 2016, he encountered something he normally doesn’t have to deal with in other areas. And he was bothered.  He was so disturbed by the occurrence that he stoped his entire speech. He couldn’t go on with the amount of disrespect he was receiving from them. He couldn’t believe that they didn’t care.  All many of them wanted to do was crack jokes throughout the important words he was trying to share. So he went off book.  And in doing so, he said some things he didn’t plan on saying. He tried to get through to them and it wasn’t working; the students kept disrespecting him.

So instead of continuing on, he had some choice words for the students. Watch below to see what he had to say.

Carmelo Anthony Wins Western Conference Player Of The Week

Just two weeks into his return to the NBA, Portland Trail Blazer and basketball legend Carmelo Anthony won the Western Conference Player of the Week.

The selection is Anthony’s first Player of the Week award since 2014 with the New York Knicks. Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo received the same honor for the Eastern Conference.

The award is well deserved for Anthony, who helped spark the struggling Trail Blazers to their third-straight victory this week.

Anthony’s return to the league has been inspiring, as he spent 376 days without being on an NBA roster as he desperately tried to find an NBA to take a chance on him and sign him.

Portland pulled the trigger on Anthony, and he has contributed right away due to his efficient scoring output.

With all the momentum behind Anthony, it would come as no surprise if this isn’t the last time Anthony receives formal recognition this season.

James Harden Scores 60 In Three Quarters As Rockets Rout Hawks 158-111

Just one night after Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young ties his career-high with 49 points, Houston Rockets’ All-Star shooting guard James Harden put on a scoring performance that made Young’s previous outing look like child’s play.

In just three quarters, Harden exploded for 60 points on as the Rockets destroy the Hawks 158-111.

Atlanta was helpless to Harden’s step-back threes and euro-step finishes, as they were down by as much as 58 points during the lopsided contest.

Young put up a valiant effort for the Hawks, scoring 37 points on five three-pointers, but Atlanta was still down by 20+ for the majority of the contest.

The scoring outburst was just another day in the office for Harden, as the former MVP tied NBA Legend Michael Jordan for the third most 60-point games.

With Harden once again playing at an MVP level, the Rockets have now found their rhythm and have become arguably the best offensive team in the Western Conference.

Luka Doncic Ties Career-High 42 Points In Mavericks 120-113 Win Over Suns

This season, Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic can seemingly do no wrong.

The NBA MVP candidate tied a career-high 42 points along with 9 rebounds and 11 assists as the Mavericks defeat the Phoenix Suns 120-113.

Doncic also made history, becoming on the third NBA player to ever average a 30-point triple-double in a calendar month.

Doncic was incredible late in the game, repeatedly dropping long-range three-point bombs and tough finishes at the rim to fuel the Mavericks’ 8-0 run that sealed the game in the fourth quarter.

Dallas guard Tim Hardaway Jr. also scored big buckets down the stretch and finished with 26 points on the night.

The Suns had a tough time staying out of foul trouble, as their two top scorers in Kelly Oubre Jr. (22 points) and Ricky Rubio (21 points) both fouled out. Oubre also added 10 rebounds while Rubio dished out 9 assists.

The Suns now drop to 8-10 after their hot start to the season, while the top-level play of Doncic has propelled the Mavericks to a 12-6 record and a fourth-place standing in the Western Conference.

With Doncic not showing any signs of slowing down, an MVP award in just his second season is looking increasingly realistic for the 20-year-old European.
