A native of San Francisco, he grew up in East Oakland and played basketball in both high school and college prior to starting his own company, Safety Floor Installations before moving into the car business. "I have a tremendous love for the Bay Area and an undying love for the game of basketball," added Steadman. "The ABA is growing dramatically; I believe it is time for national companies to take notice of the league, the largest professional sports league in the US and the most diversifed also with 75% of our owners being African-American, Hispanic, Asian and women. We have been overlooked too long and really do deserve the support of the corporate community, especially with the recent announcement of the Black History Museum (www.ntbhm.com
) and STAR (Stand Tall Against Racism).
Thanks. Be careful. Be safe.
