This was one of those much anticipated moments. Where would Kevin Durant play ball next season? Not everybody’s happy that he’s going to the Warriors. Meanwhile, at age 31, Lady Gaga posted that she finally got her driver’s license. Durant & Gaga caught the eyes of fans with their latest breakout moves.

Durant told The Players’ Tribune “moving out of my comfort zone to a new city offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth.” Plus, Gaga posted to social media “I’m free. Rollin’ with the homies.” Sometimes, a big factor in ‘doing you’ is matching your mojo with an important mission.

Sports junkies are trying to get inside Durant’s head. Some think it was a weak decision. But having played with OKC for nine years he gives us a new way to see MOJO as Move:On, Juice:On! A few years ago LeBron James did it in leaving for Miami. He then won his first title and wore the robe of a champion.

Durant’s searching for his first ring. He’s been named league MVP before so that box has been checked. Now he wants to make a fresh start by teaming-up with a new set of NBA fellas. He’s looking for ways to feel like he’s rollin’ with the homies. For ballers, rings and stats are cool. But off-court good times are too.

So the story’s end is yet to be written. Here’s what Gaga also posted on social media in saying “And after I passed my test. PRAISE HIM.” Sometimes another factor in ‘doing you’ is feeling like someone’s looking out for you. Without the church bells, Warriors players made him feel like it’s time to play ball in the Bay.

Folks waited for word from Durant. July 4th fired-off the online rant. Where would he play ball next year? That’s what team GMs did fear. Not all happy people like those in Golden State. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga moved something off her plate. Getting driver’s license finally. Making moves that hit some socially.

Telling The Players Tribune his reason. For going somewhere else next season. Stepping out comfort zone a first step. Contribution and growth to bring more pep. Plus Gaga feeling like she on a roll. With her homies and kindred soul. Big factor in ‘doing you’ right. Is matching mojo to mission that’s out of sight.

Sports junkies trying to scoop his head. Thinking it’s a weak decision instead. Durant did nine years with OKC. Now he wants to be set free. With new way to set MOJO on point. As Move:On and Juice:On to anoint. LeBron going to Miami did it then. Getting title and champion’s robe, remember when?

Durant searching for a first ring. Players know that’s a big thing. Been named league MVP before. That’s already made his box score. Wanting a fresh start in the Bay. Who are we to judge or say? To feel like one of the guys. Did something to open his eyes. Rings and stats are cool. And off-court acting the fool.

Storybook end not out of reach. In time he’ll have something to teach. Gaga giving props along the way. PRAISE HIM for passing the test that day. Maybe another factor in ‘doing you.’ Is knowing someone’s looking out for true. Without church bells ringing loud. Warrior players made him feel Bay-area crowd.

Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (Old-School Flava)

”Jamaica is celebrating with the United States as Tessanne wins The Voice!” That’s how Carson Daley capped-off the evening of the season 5 finale. Chin was among three finalists in the competition. She wowed all the coaches during blind auditions. She brought down the house and took home the crown.

The reggae backup singer has worked with the likes of Jimmy Cliff and Shaggy. She even did a few duet performances on the show with industry superstars. Now she’s ready to do her own thing with a Universal Music recording contract. Her journey is full of inspiration for dreamers, career changers and job seekers.

Chin was one of a few who thrilled fans and coaches alike. She showcased her singing voice (without the accent) and her speaking voice (with the accent) to have crossover appeal. Chin used the power of having a passion-voice that spoke louder than just singing talent. This made the experience come alive.

There’s not much else she saw herself doing. Chin says singing has been her first-love. So she’s put in the time working on her professional goals. Where she saw herself years ago is moving closer to where she is now. Having a next-level vision has taken her from small-island dirt roads to big-country dreams.

Chin gave credit to her fans in Jamaica and the U.S. She also touched on the bond she developed with Adam Levine. Whether on a startup journey or the comeback trail it helps to have a co-sponsor in your corner, a vintage performance to standout from the rest and resilience like a rock to enjoy the love fest.

The competition felt like pure bliss. Wowing fans as the show begun. Bringing down the house and having fun.

The reggae backup singer from yard. Worked with Shaggy and Cliff, not a bad card. Performed duets with many a superstar. Winning it all and a brand new car. Now ready to do her own thing. With a Universal Music contract as her ring. Lots of inspiration for today’s dreamers. Career changers and job seekers.

Chin seen early on as one of a few. Her melody fell over you like dew. Showcased her singing voice with a little twang. Speaking accent different from how she sang. Gaining more in crossover appeal. A glimpse of being the real deal. Her passion-voice louder than singing. In how talent comes alive in her bringing.

Not much else she wanted to do. Chin knows it’s important to ‘be you.’ With her first-love in the lead role. A way of working on her professional goal. Seeing herself years ago. Closer to being in today’s flow. Having a next-level vision gives her new streams. From small-island dirt roads to big-country dreams.

Crediting local and overseas fans. Touching on the bond with Levine’s hands. Whether startup journey or comeback trail. Dreamers don’t quit even if at times they fail. Good to have support from a co-sponsor. As someone who holds-down your corner. A vintage performance from the rest. Lets you enjoy the love fest.

Tip: Upping your game means moving past your past, working on your present and zooming into the future.
