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.

Serial entrepreneur Jamil Abiad is continuing to make waves in the booming Canadian basketball scene with a wide array of different programs. He has an impressive portfolio of ex-students under his belt, establishing him as a renowned global basketball coach and trainer who has personally competed in Canada’s college basketball circuit as well as professionally overseas.

Playing professionally in Lebanon, Jamil got the opportunity to train with and learn from some ex- NBA players,  and has had the opportunity to learn from other high level trainers. As both a player and a trainer, Jamil learned a great deal from these experiences and has since trained athletes who have gone on to achieve great things.

While overseas playing basketball, Jamil also explored his passion for video production and editing that started when he was creating compilations of his own match highlights as a college player. This eventually led to the creation of ‘Next Level Media’, his very first business that is focused around helping other athletes promote themselves for selection by coaches. This is just one of the several successful enterprises Jamil has founded since he stopped competing professionally.

Two of his other ventures include the U17/U19 boys basketball program Team Believe as well as NL Fitness. Through both of these programs, Jamil passes on the experience and expertise he’s developed to young and aspiring athletes.

During the time that he played at a professional level, Jamil was able to develop and perfect his training system. This training system is based on Jamil’s unique philosophy, and he believes it is the best method for preparing a player’s mind and body for the rigors of competitive play.

Not only does Jamil provide practical training, he mentors and motivates his students too. In fact, the basketball veteran often undertakes speaking engagements where he talks about some of the essential skills that he learned through competition that apply to other aspects of life, such as time management, leadership, self-discipline, and the ability to overcome adversity.

Jamil acknowledges that competing as a professional athlete in any sport requires not only routine training but a strong mental focus. This mental focus needs to be worked on just like any specific skill a player has, and this is something that Jamil talks about and works on with his students.

Since the NBA championship win of the Toronto Raptors, Canada’s interest in basketball has skyrocketed. A new generation of young Canadians is now exploring basketball both for recreation and for competitive play.

Jamil was already a successful basketball trainer by the time the Raptors won and has been lucky to be at the heart of this new surge in player interest. Junior and senior basketball athletes can benefit greatly from Jamil’s expertise.

Overall, Jamil is on-track to complete his goal of helping young athletes develop confidence in their abilities and become highly competitive basketball athletes. Only time will tell what the next big move for Jamil Abiad will be.
