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.

Aaron Rodgers Signs $150m Contract as Green Bay Packers Retain Star Quarterback

If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, then the news that Aaron Rodgers has pledged himself to the Lambeau Field franchise for another three years will be music to your ears. The veteran quarterback has completed back-to-back NFL MVP award-winning seasons, and many may have feared that another offseason filled with ‘will-he, won’t he’ rumors were on the cards, but that’s now been neatly avoided.

38-year-old Rodgers has put pen to paper on a deal that will net him a massive $150m and makes him the best-paid player in the league. His first year will amount to $41m, the second is worth $59, and his third will work out at $49m. That may seem like a hefty sum, but Rodgers reportedly actually turned down a higher amount, knowing that doing so would free up money to improve the deals of other players (and possible newcomers to the Packers ranks).

The retention of Rodgers will, of course, offer a massive boost to Matt LaFleur’s team’s push for a Super Bowl title, and if you take a look at any odds comparison site, you’ll see that Green Bay are now at around the (+1100) mark, meaning that only the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ahead of them in the betting.

Rodgers has been in superb form over the past few seasons, showing that age hasn’t caught up with him, and there is certainly plenty more left in the tank. Next season will be his 18th with the Packers, and he has led his team to the playoffs in each of the past three campaigns. 

During that period, the Packers have a 39-6 record in regular-season action, which is a frightening level of consistency, and keeping such a hugely talented player at the team is something that has been widely applauded.

Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst remarked;

“We are very pleased to be able to come to an agreement with Aaron that keeps him in Green Bay,”

“His play on the field and leadership in our locker room remain vital in our pursuit of another Super Bowl title. The agreement also allows us to maintain and enhance what we feel is already a very competitive roster.”

The new deal for Rodgers has left back-up QB Jordan Love considering his options, and one imagines he may look to leave Green Bay in order to find game time elsewhere. 

On that point, comments from LaFleur suggest that they may not stand in his way, should he indeed look to find a new team;

“Jordan’s come a long way,” 

“I still think, with any young player that hasn’t gotten maybe the experience up to this point, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So I think it’s going to be an important offseason, that when he does come back, it’s making sure that his footwork is sharp, that he’s on the details of what we’re trying to accomplish on each and every play and all the concepts, really a mastery of the offense, and just the command that he has. I know he takes that to heart, and he takes it very personally, and he’ll do whatever he can to be his best.”

One thing is for sure. Trying to force your way from behind the shadow of such an accomplished player, such as Aaron Rodgers, isn’t something that can be easily achieved. Hence the likely need to move on rather than sit on the sidelines for another three years.
