Moreover, Lee and his father, a basketball coach, bonded over basketball as Cruse played basketball as well.
Although Lee played, he admits that he wasn’t a talented player. Which is also the reason why he ended up having a ‘horrific’ experience; as his father used to put pressure on him to do better. A trait of a typical father!
But despite the pressure, Lee’s father has had a bigger influence in his life and he always strives to make his father proud.
dad’s 70 now, nobody has had a bigger influence on my life. I’ve been trying to make him proud with my deeds & actions. I try to make him laugh, seeking his approval. instead he gives me something better. Grace and love no matter what because I’m his son
