Thomas Bryant was ready to start his journey back to the basketball court

He learned not to rush his recovery

which took a bit more than a calendar year

never give up

He lived the motto on that bracelet again on Friday

His nine field goals (in 11 attempts) also represented a season high, and he added six rebounds, one assist and two steals.

He brought life and light to a team that urgently needed them.

Thomas, my hat's off to him
