The former Syracuse great enlisted the help of other stars to publish a book with parenting advice.
The 11-year-NBA veteran and former Syracuse standout center explores all angles of male parentage in his latest book, “Fatherhood: Rising to the Ultimate Challenge.”
A father of three, the 33-year-old Harlem-born Thomas understands daddy issues intimately. The Obama administration even chose him to participate in the President’s town hall meetings on fatherhood.
But Thomas, who now plays for the Atlanta Hawks, doesn’t just rely on his own voice to convey the importance of parenthood.
He also enlists the help of nearly 50 celebrity contributors — athletes like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kevin Durant and Tony Hawk; musicians like Ice Cube, Damian Marley and Chuck D; and politicians like Howard Dean, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Rep. Elijah Cummings.
So while Thomas has already developed a reputation as a tough enforcer in the paint, his latest book has turned him into not only a shot blocker but a defender of fatherhood.
