Today's Motivation is Nick Collison, aka "Mr. Thunder" 🏀⚡️

An Orange City native, Nick was the 1st Oklahoma City Thunder and Kansas Jayhawk player to have his #4 retired after embracing leadership roles.

From 2003 after being drafted by the SuperSonics to his retirement in 2018, a 6"10' Nick embodied the role player mentality. He was named a unanimous First-Team All-American at Kansas, and is remembered fondly by everyone he played with.
