Moving past the many struggles in life and overcoming it with his persistence and hard work is entrepreneur and sportsman Dallion King
Dallion King, who is popular as Mr Moves, has proved his mettle at every stage of life.
The more you struggle, the more you get nearer to success, they say. Well, this is a true story of a young man who knew that he had to face the challenges of life, but he also knew that handling them all with courage, grit and confidence could help him lead a much happier life and that is what he did. We are talking about Dallion King, a basketball player of the Dominican Republic National Team. But, like many multi-talented individuals, there is more to Dallion King as well.
Dallion King earned his nickname “Mr Moves” after excelling in his sports as a pro basketball player. However, the journey to achieve this status of life was never a cakewalk for him. Born on November 18, 1995, and hailing from the lower east side of New York, Dallion King had to see a childhood that came along with many challenges. As any broken family would affect a child, it affected Dallion King as well as he did not have the guidance of his father in his growing years.
But, his affinity towards playing basketball was since his childhood and as he desired to do something in the same, he watched several YouTube videos to self-learn the sport when he was all of only 12 years and enhanced his skills to become a professional by practicing at the local grounds of the city. With improving upon his abilities and talents as a basketball player soon, he got the chance to play at the famous Dyckman Park. This led to his another success and gave him a scholarship at the Montclair State University.
As years passed by and as Dallion King grew as a sportsman, he thought to expand his career with jumping into becoming an entrepreneur as well. Looking at kids play at a playground with wearing shoes, he decided to open a charity named “Simple Things” that does philanthropy work for the many in need. Since his nickname gained him much recognition in life, he came up with his athletic brand named “Mr Moves”.
After joining hands with many prominent brands like Adidas, Handles Life, Jordan, and many more, he and his brand gained more momentum. His next venture came with “MossMoves Seamoss”, an Irish Seamoss company that worked around nutrients for boosting the immune system and helping people with digestion as well.
Dallion King reunited with his father years later and today both of them have initiated a jerk restaurant named “Da Jerkyard” in North Hollywood, CA. Building a gym next to his restaurant is his next plan for fitness camps and athletes in the name of “Jerkyard Fit”. Very soon, Dallion King would also be introducing his merchandise line called “Make Moves”.
Dallion King inspires the world with the kind of work he has done so far and the kind of work he still aims to do in the future.

Who are the early contenders to make the World Series in 2023?
Opening Day is fast approaching. With pitchers and catchers reporting to major league camps across Arizona and Florida this week, baseball is officially back and for the first time since 2019, we have a full spring training ahead of us. The start of camp means a first chance to view stars such as Jacob deGrom, Justin Verlander and Trea Turner in their new uniforms, and this year we’ll get to see MLB’s 2023 rule changes in action. To no one’s surprise, the reigning World Series Champion Astros are the team to beat heading into 2023. The Houston outfit will be looking to secure back-to-back World Series titles for the first time since the Yankees achieved the feat in the laste-90s. But can anyone knock the seemingly unbeatable Astros off their perch and stop them from laying their hands on the Commissioner’s trophy once again? Here’s our look at what to expect from some of the top contenders in the 2023 MLB season.
Astros the favourites to defend their title
The reigning-champion Houston Astros are the current favorites to take home the 2023 World Series title, but do they really have enough to repeat? The bookies would have you believing they do. Even in a loaded AL West, the Astros are priced as a two-dollar favorite to emerge as the division winner, so expectations are still sky-high at Minute Maid Park. Those wanting to bet on the 2023 MLB season should look across various US betting sites before they do. Having lost Justin Verlander this offseason, the Astros’ season will likely boil down to how well they can replace this era-defining pitcher. Their new-look top three of Framber Valdez, Cristian Javier, and Lance McCullers possess all the necessary tools and should be more than formidable enough to mitigate his departure. Houston’s lineup looks to be even more lethal this season, signing 2020 AL MVP José Abreu to a three-year deal to shore up their lone hole at first base. Houston ended last season ranking second in the AL in isolated power and strike-rate. Michael Brantley’s return from a right shoulder injury that cut his 2022 season short is a welcomed sight. The Astros look poised to win the AL West for a sixth time in seven seasons and with it make a fourth trip to the World Series in five years.
New York Yankees the most likely to challenge Astros dominance
The New York Yankees last won the World Series in 2009, going more than a decade without even winning the American League pennant. For the most successful franchise in MLB history, short trips to the postseason have become the norm as of late and that is a trend the Yankees will look to buck. Thankfully for New York fans they have retained the services of MVP hitter Aaron Judge into this year while adding Cy Young candidate Carlos Rodon to a six-year $162million deal. This will give them the best possible chance to replicate their immense offensive output from last year while adding some much-needed depth to the dugout. Finding stability outside of Judge is a must, as Anthony Rizzo, Josh Donaldson, and Giancarlo Stanton need to provide some protection in the middle of the lineup. There’s a chance the Yankees claim one of the three wild-card spots with the AL East being such a deep division, but still, the Yankees have more than enough pieces to make a run into October. The Yankees had a very strong start to the season in 2022, followed by a slump in the second half that culminated in an ALCS defeat to eventual World Series champions Astros. If these signings are anything to go by, they are ready to end the drought.
New York Mets are the best of the rest
Over on the other side of town, the Mets at Citi Field have been making a lot of noise this offseason. The last two seasons, the Mets had the National League East title well within reach late in the season, and both times they let it slip away to the Braves. For the second straight offseason, the Mets responded to that disappointment by spending a bunch of money on very good players. They enter the year with a slightly improved and much more expensive roster looking to finally take home that elusive NL East crown for the first time since 2015. So far this Winter, the Mets have signed Justin Verlander, José Quintana, David Robertson, Kodai Senga, Omar Narváez, and Carlos Correa. Brandon Nimmo, Edwin Diaz, and Adam Ottavino have also been re-signed, which puts the Mets’ total outlay this offseason at $806.1 million; the most money ever spent by a team in a single offseason. Their intentions are clear, they’re here to win this year, and they have taken all the necessary steps to ensure they do just that. Having said that, the NL East was probably the most active division in the offseason for signings and the question remains whether they would have done enough to pose a credible threat to the Yankees’ or Astros’ World Series ambitions. At the very least though they will be competing for a divisional title.
San Diego hoping to silence the doubters
Given how complete San Diego’s roster is coupled with the fact they advanced to last season’s NLCS, it’s a bit surprising to see the Padres priced at only +1000. Sure, oddsmakers are still expecting a successful season with the Padres boasting the sixth-best odds to win the 2023 Fall Classic, but a +750 price tag is more in line with this team’s ceiling. The San Diego Padres lost the NLCS in five games to the Philadelphia Phillies, but three of the four losses were decided by two runs or fewer. While San Diego struck out on landing Aaron Judge, it dramatically improved its lineup depth with Matt Carpenter and Nelson Cruz. Keep in mind, San Diego is already making up for the Fernando Tatís Jr. suspension with perennial All-Star hitter Xander Bogaerts sliding in at shortstop. Tatís Jr. should be at peak form long before the playoff race, giving San Diego a lineup with multiple NL MVP candidates and excellent depth, with a strong rotation and excellent bullpen backing them. If there’s ever a time the Padres dethrone the Dodgers and claim the NL West regular season title, now’s the time, and past that, why not dream of a visit to the Fall classic?
