the opening of the NIKE basketball facility in chicago had chicago bulls legend scottie pippen talk with the young players, where he shared insights on the importance of discipline and dreams. this has been enhanced with a wall in the hallway area that asks teens ‘what’s your crazy dream’, giving them a space to act on it.
