At the age of nine, Lester Hunte was exposed to the game of basketball through watching the “greats” such as Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant, his older brother’s favorite player. Mesmerized by such influential images, Hunte knew what he wanted to do in life.

Living in the projects of Bronx, New York, Hunte played basketball in the house on a daily basis with his older brothers, Marcus and Sherod, to stay out of trouble in the rough neighborhoods surrounding them.
