Hall of Fame basketball player Wes Unseld Thursday delivered a witty, poignant speech to the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County that was often aimed more at the adults in the room.
Unseld, a former player and coach of the Washington Bullets who now serves as the team's general manager, urged adults to take responsibility for raising the next generation, even when the odds seem against them.
"You always hear that this is the `lost generation.' I'm going to ask you: Who lost them, and more importantly who's going to find them?" he said. "They will give their best and society will kick them in the teeth every time. We must teach them to give the best they can anyway."
