Bigger than basketball - Nov 15, 2011

Eurobasket's Articles

As a pro ball player, you are faced with numerous obstacles: up days, down days, lonely days and emotional highs and lows. Through it all you build camaraderie, lifelong relationships, and you meet a few truly great beings. The average person with the average job will never understand the love that's built in camp, practice, travel, and games. You build a real mentality of it's US against THEM. I'm writing with a very heavy heart and a little confusion, as we just lost one of US.

Some people never seem to be lost for words, and Sam Carey (203-F-84) was one of them. Always having something good to say to lift your spirits, slick to say to make you think twice, or funny to say to make you smile. Even when his words weren't tight, he'd hit you with that half smile, and he couldn't help but to brighten your day.

My teammate, my friend, my brother

My teammate. When I came to play for the Saint John Mill Rats in 2009, Sam was the first one to stand out. Aside from his tattoos (engulfing his whole upper-body), his unreal athleticism (defying the 'White men can't jump' stereotype), and his smooth spin move; he came and dapped me up, and hugged me like we had known each other for a lifetime. 'What's up man, I'm Sam.' You didn't know how powerful that statement was at the time, but you knew it was genuine, no facade involved. It was far different from that cold handshake that someone gives you as if they know you're coming after their job. 2 years later he gave me the exact same welcome.

My friend. He made his city, my city. Took me around, introducing me to all we came in contact with, with that same genuine smile and love. Showed me all the places to be, even took me to his tattoo man to fix some of my bogus artwork. If it was his, it was yours, and that felt warming, in a city filled with freezing cold temperatures and weekly snow storms.

My Brother. We shared some very personal things that only brothers could share. His words safe with me, and my words safe with him. Every time I came into town he was making sure I was straight, and that he showed me around as if it was my first time in town again. Even our last handshake and hug, hours before this tragedy, a day after our last time kicking it, and milliseconds before his final drive, he reiterated his joy about his newborn son, and his wife to be. With the same half-smile, we dapped, we hugged, and we left going on different journeys, but he was going on the one we all want to go on. TO HEAVEN. See you soon....My teammate, my friend, my brother.

My prayers and condolences sincerely go out to all of those that this humble man, Sam Carey (203-F-84), ever touched. To his family, blood and extended, stay strong, keep your faith and keep your head to the sky.


God Bless

Slam finishes Seattle Pro-Am regular season with first-ever OT win - 9 months ago
The Bellingham Slam received a late game-tying put-back from center Austin Bragg (6'9''-F/C-91, college: W.Washington), then pulled away in overtime as they defeated Team Worldwide in a Seattle Pro-Am thriller, 110-103, at Royal Brougham Pavilion on Saturday. Remarkably, it was the first time the Slam had posted an overtime victory in team history, having gone 0-for-5 in previous games which required extra time. Thanks to hot outside shooting from forward Jordan Hamilton (6'7''-F-90, coll...   [read more]

Ex-Vikings power Bellingham Slam rout of Kitsap - 10 months ago
The Bellingham Slam received contributions from a number of former Western Washington University players as they routed the Kitsap Admirals, 110-89, in Seattle Pro-Am action at Royal Brougham Pavilion on Saturday. Led by guard Taylor Stafford (6'1''-G-94, college: W.Washington) who tallied a game-high 38 points, seven ex-Vikings scored the Slam and accounted for over two-thirds of Bellingham's total offensive production. Stafford dazzled the crowd with perhaps the best shooting performanc...   [read more]

Paul Hafford
LC alum Hafford stars for Slam in Seattle Pro-Am - 2 Years ago
Former Lynden Christian standout Paul Hafford (6'5''-G/F-84, college: Portland St.) has added another successful chapter to his basketball career. Hafford, a 2002 LC graduate, averaged a team-high 22.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game this summer while leading the Bellingham Slam to a 7-3 record and a Seattle Pro-Am semifinal appearance. The sharp-shooting guard closed the season on a tear, scoring 40-plus points in two of the team's final three contests. Hafford began the do...   [read more]
