  • Golden State Warriors forward Alfonzo McKinnie’s best friend, Leevon Carter, is serving a 15-year sentence for armed robbery. They still remain very close, even during the NBA Finals, and plan to start a foundation together. CloseUp360 spent time with Alfonzo in Oakland and with Leevon at the Danville Correctional Center, more than two hours from their hometown of Chicago, to go inside their special friendship.

                                  Thing about it is when he gets out he won’t be able to leave the state of Chicago for some time and since he don’t have another place to go just hanging with the wrong dudes can be deadly easily lead to another sentence smh

                                    God is good all the time no matter what life brings ur way
                                    Just always remember that
                                    God don’t make no mistakes
                                    Everything happens for a reason in our lives
                                    Sometimes we don’t understand it &
                                    Sometimes we do
                                    But God knows our hearts feeling thoughts & emotions
                                    I believe sometimes God has already forgiven us
                                    Even we don’t forgive ourselves

                                    We are giving a choice of what road we we will choose to follow
                                    But even when we don’t see the light but we’re in living on the dark side

                                    God always makes away to get our attention one way or another

                                    Because he loves each everyone of us that much

                                    Look how he has allowed u both to b in each other lives constantly

                                    No matter where u r or how far away u r

                                    God has made away for u both

                                    Thank u God for not closing the friendship the brotherly love between these 2 men
                                    & not allowing jealousy envy malice hatred or being spiteful towards one another & allowing others to come between them both

                                    But they r a perfect example of what real friendship is all about
                                    Thank u God !!!

                                    If we’re thankful for the little things in life
                                    We’re b even more thankful for the bigger & brighter things in our lives

                                    Peace love & happiness to everyone

                                      I feel like the 15 he was sentenced to is the amount of time that’s necessary for him to retrain his brain. How long it will take for him to undo the trauma of growing up too fast. It’s a long process but hang in there love and free your mind 💪🏾

                                              The Crazy thing is he will do like 10 years and be released with 5 on paper then he can’t leave Illinois and he will really have to stay focused so he don’t violate being back in that environment........

                                              I hope Alfonzo continues to improve as a player to the point where he can possibly start. He and Quinn Cook both provide instant offense off the bench.
