The Detroit Piston recently shared words of wisdom with members of the Warriors basketball program.
The Detroit Pistons just released video of starting forward Kyle Singler's visit to Brother Rice High School on Jan. 31. The appearance came as a surprise to the dozens of students practicing after school hours on campus, and was the result of an e-mail from Brother Rice freshman Luke Cappetto in November, the former college star at Duke explained. Inspired by the letter, Singler brought a Pistons video team, T-shirts for the players and a stack of photos that he also autographed. "He spoke with all four teams — about 55 players, coaches and managers — and answered questions about basketball, Duke, hard work and doing what you love to do," according to the school's Facebook page.
