I will never forget seeing him with his dad, hall of fame boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the1970s popular 7 Up commercial. As a kid, I remember saying, "look at that dude he has it made."
It had nothing to do with who his dad was but more of the fact that he had a dad in his life. Being a black male growing up where I'm from almost none of my friends had their dad in their lives.
