Not unlike many before him, his dream was soon transformed when he saw nothing but dollar signs; he declined to go to college and instead chose to go straight to the NBA. Nicknamed Blur, he was physically and mentally unprepared for the NBA, and as a result, he did not last. When he tries to cash in on some easy money with an old friend from the neighborhood, he is arrested and spends five long years in jail. Shelterball picks up years later when, unhappy with his tedious life, Blur attempts to turn it around. At the age of 35, he applies and is accepted to college. While he is there, he pushes himself to be a better student and citizen. Focusing on educating himself and gaining a broader worldview, he is approached by the basketball coach who remembers him from years ago and convinces him to come try out for the team. With basketball back in his life, he gradually transforms from the selfish boy of his youth to the selfless, empathetic man that he always saw and admired in his father. Moreover, once his championship pedigree on the court transitions to the real world, he begins a journey where loyalty, honor, friendship, and a mans word become more valuable than money or fame. Shelterball is about Blurs struggle with his family, his friends, a woman that he becomes involved with who is in an abusive relationship, and most importantly himself.

Nicknamed Blur, he was physically and mentally unprepared for the NBA, and as a result, he did not last. When he tries to cash in on some easy money with an old friend from the neighborhood, he is arrested and spends five long years in jail. Shelterball picks up years later when, unhappy with his tedious life, Blur attempts to turn it around. At the age of 35, he applies and is accepted to college. While he is there, he pushes himself to be a better student and citizen. Focusing on educating himself and gaining a broader worldview, he is approached by the basketball coach who remembers him from years ago and convinces him to come try out for the team. With basketball back in his life, he gradually transforms from the selfish boy of his youth to the selfless, empathetic man that he always saw and admired in his father. Moreover, once his championship pedigree on the court transitions to the real world, he begins a journey where loyalty, honor, friendship, and a man?s word become more valuable than money or fame.
