In Fatherhood, Etan Thomas speaks from his heart on what matters most in his life—being there for his children. As a highly respected player with the NBA and a leading participant in President Obama’s Fatherhood Initiative, Etan has reached out to young men (often young fathers) in the juvenile detention system and in local communities. He knows firsthand the difference having a father in your life every day can make—and as a father of three, Etan walks the talk in his own life.
