NBA Year In Review: The Good and Bad of 2022 | Arena

Happy holidays, y’all. As so many people take this season to reflect on life, loss and love they’ve experienced this year, I’m no different. This year has been the best year of my adult life, and I’m incredibly grateful to so many of you for making it that way. Blood in the Garden, my first book and a project I worked on for the better part of three years, made the New York Times bestseller list for a couple of weeks because of how much you all supported it from the jump. Spike Lee is now set to make it into a Last Dance–style docuseries in the near future. This weekly newsletter launched right after the book’s release and has been a fun way to connect with y’all.

From the bottom of my heart: Thank you. These are things I never even really dreamed of, and ones I won’t forget anytime soon.
