dinner party at Malik's

Last night, our team leader hosted dinner party at his house.
His name is Malik Rose, playing in NBA for 12 years (he got champion rings with Spurs).
This season, he is not playing for game much, but because of his maturity and personality, he is playing a big role in the Knicks and respected from everybody.
Every holiday, such as thanksgiving and Christmas, he asks me if I have a place to go and always says, “if you don’t have place to go, come and join my dinner.”
He is this kind of guy.

He is living in “apartment”.
The floor we had dinner was like a restaurant and service was even better than restaurants I know.
Bartender made nice drinks, servers were walking and serving nice dishes, and catering foods were really nice.

He also invited his neighbors and I chatted with some of his neighbors for long time.
Nice people, nice food and drink, and nice music.
Very comfortable time was going on.
After the dinner, players started playing card game.
It was fun to see players besides basketball court…they were just like normal people.

When I was about to leave, Malik had me bring back some food and gave me his phone number.
“Call me if you get lost or anything happen”
Then sent me off to the door.
with Malik
(I don't dare to take picture with players, but this time was an exception)

Tomorrow, I’m going leave to Charlotte, NC with team.
My first time to travel with team and of course, I’m excited.
Bobcats is not good team, so we should stop 6 losing streak there.
