When Orlando Magic guard C.J. Watson set foot on the Google campus in Mountain View, Calif., he wore the customary rainbow hat with the propeller on top.

A&E Source Unique Spotlight: C.J. Watson | News


Before any magnificent architecture is built, there has to be a strong foundation in place. The building can have alluring potential, but without a sturdy foundation, it will eventually collapse. Our lives are very similar — whether we have a foundation in the beginning of our lives or we build one somewhere along the way, the only way one remains statured is if they have that tenacious groundwork. Charles Watson Jr. was fortunate enough to have that foundation at an early age. His parents built a foundation of love, discipline and spirituality that set a high bar of integrity in their lives. At the age of 5, Watson acquired a hobby that he didn’t realize would shape his destiny. READ MORE
