Lest you thought MVN.com’s hoops blogs were the sole province of misogynists, homophobes and illiterates, NBA veteran Doug Christie took advantage of the “anybody-can-do-it” portal and shared his profound holiday wishes with ordinary citizens like you and me.

Thanksgiving is so special to me and my family, as it lets you reflect on all that you™re thankful for. I want to share some of the things I™m thankful for now with you all.

I™m thankful:

for knowing Jesus and putting him first in our life
for being alive
for being married to Jackie
for having our children
for them being healthy
for the many blessings God has given me and my family
for being able to help so very many people in some way
for having this blog on MVN and be able to have a voice and talk to you all
for our country
for another year of learning how to be a even better person than last year
for being healthy
for making it to the NBA and playing 14 years
for all the good in this world
for our wonderful book
for our great DVD – the Christies un-cut
for our reality show
and for the love we (me and my family) have for mankind, even though some have wronged us. We forgive all.
