He arrived to the South Bronx not knowing the English language. He frequently walked past crack infested blocks to attend Rice High School. Through hard work and determination he learned the language and dominated the basketball landscape. He racked up every basketball award within reach all while repping hard for his beloved Dominican Republic. In his senior season he led the Rice Raiders to the city and state chips and took home the 1994 Gatorade National High School Basketball Player of the year award.
He went on to attend St. Johns and played several seasons in the NBA. We’re honored to chop it up with NYC legend, Felipe Lopez on this episode of Dribble N’ Dimes.
