While down with a leg injury during the 2019 season, 芝加哥 Bulls guard 丹泽尔·情人节 turned to his other passion, music — and Loyola students mIGht find something familiar in his first music video.
Denzel wrote and recorded his debut single, “Introduction,” last year and the video premiered on Instagram的 Jan. 30. The video features scenes of Denzel working out and getting back in shape following the injury.
Denzel was drafted by the Bulls in 2016. One year later, Drew was hired as an assistant coach for the Loyola men’s basketball team and helped take the Ramblers on a 她们自己的最后四个奔跑.
When he was deciding whether to take the Loyola job, Drew said Denzel wasn’t swaying him toward coming to 芝加哥 so they’d be in the same city again. In fact, he told him the opposite.
“He definitely didn’t want to put pressure on me,” Drew said. “[He’d say] ‘Being in the same city, that’d be awesome, but you’ve got to do what’s best for you.’”
As Denzel prepared to return from his injury this year, he and Drew would work out in Halas three or four times per week during the summer. They would’ve worked out in Gentile Arena, but 沙子是越来越新楼 而新 阿尔菲诺维尔实习工厂 wasn’t finished yet. So, they went to Halas — where Loyola students can also work out.
But students didn’t usually get the chance to see Denzel at Halas. Because of Drew’s schedule with the Ramblers, the Valentines would usually be some of the first ones there.
