Five Questions With Rockford Native Fred VanVleet
On Sunday I went downtown with Double T to meet and talk with Rockford native and NBA Toronto Raptor, Fred VanVleet.
First off, Fred is one of the nicest and most humble kids I've ever met. By the way, calling an NBA star a "kid" does in fact feel weird. I've head a lot about Fred, a lot about his work ethic and drive. I was also told once that he harbored a bunch of bad feelings towards Rockford, that obviously is not true.
Fred took his mini vacation (NBA All-Star Weekend) to come home and give back to Rockford. There was a kids camp, a speaking engagement, just being one with the community he grew up in. No doubt he won't have many NBA All-Star Weekends free in the near future.
Double T talked to Fred about growing up in Rockford, must have foods, great places to play hoops, etc. Check out 5 Questions with Fred VanVleet below.
