Rashard Lewis, the star forward of the NBA’s Orlando Magic is trying to create opportunities for others with some of the money he got with his big contract he got from the Orlando Magic. Rashard Lewis went to high school in Houston’s Elsik High School which admittedly has some of the poorest students in the city of Houston. Rashard Lewis has made good despite the deck being stacked against him in many respects in life.
When he was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics in 1998 at pick number thirty five, Rashard Lewis was not guaranteed a spot on the roster or a contract of any kind for that matter. Rashard spends very little of his money on himself in fact it is reported by several sources that he still drives the same ten year old car that he did as a rookie when he entered the league. Now that is what I call being smart with your money.
Rashard is now developing a website and he is setting up his foundation and already has a summer basketball camp for kids planned. Rashard Lewis is also looking for serious business partners which he can invest his money with to make the world a better place. Rashard Lewis could be looking to set up his own real estate company like former Magic forward and current member of the Suns Grant Hill has as noted by Hill’s website.
You can actually e-mail Rashard Lewis and his representatives on his website if you interested in talking about legit business deals. I would expect that Lewis is planning to invest in the Winter Park and Orlando areas more than anywhere else to build up his reputation within the local community. Given that Rashard Lewis inked a deal for one hundred and ten million he has made good on his work thus far in the NBA and he has plenty of work to do in the future.
Rashard Lewis has come a long way from the days of Elsik High School. He is now playing along side All-Star center Dwight Howard as a great one two punch. The Orlando Magic currently have one of the best records in the Eastern Conference under head coach Stan Van Gundy. Stan Van Gundy has had to find enough touches for everyone when he coached a similar duo to that of Lewis and Howard. Van Gundy coached Dwayne Wade and Shaquille O’Neal during his time as head coach of the Miami Heat. The website that Rashard Lewis is running as his personal website is still under construction, but he can be contacted.
