I’ve got to give major props to Jeff Teague, Shawn Teague (Jeff’s father) and the entire Team Teague organization for pullin’ a power move on Sunday. They opened The Factory D1Training facility. The joint is a 33,500-square foot state of the art facility on the west side of town. It has three full basketball courts, 18 hoops, team prep rooms, 7,500-square feet of interior turf trainin’ and 2,500-square feet of physical therapy space.
Boyz turned out and showed the homie some love too. Kids were already takin’ advantage of the workout space the trainers and the turf fields. Talk about bein’ a game changer? This is what boyz that make it to the league should be doin’ in every community. Especially, the established veterans that have been blessed to get multiple contracts. Jeff Teague gets crazy respect from me for this power play.
Here’s what ole boy had to say about why the joint was so important to have here in Indy, “I want local athletes to have the same opportunities I had and more. This was the best way to accomplish that desire.”
This is the type of stuff boyz love to see from their professional athletes bruh!!! Yeah, it’s cool to see a dun pull up in the Phantom but that doesn’t do anything for the cat watchin’ him pull up. It doesn’t teach or create an opportunity. It just gives a him a chance to say, “Wow look at him.”
Do you know how many kids simply want to play basketball? And yes, not every kid is goin’ to be a D1 prospect or for that matter, a varsity athlete. However, givin’ kids an opportunity to play the game, learn the disciplines of the game and the structure of competition will have a tremendous impact on their lives beyond just hoopin’.

Sports is the ultimate teacher and Team Teague is doin’ their part to change lives and to inspire young people! Salute my brothers and now let’s get it in this weekend at the Teague Invitational! Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
