NBA Free Agency Officially Begins

The bell for NBA free-agency has rung and today I have officially become a free agent. But what does that mean? What does it mean to me? What does it mean to my family? What does it mean to you the fans? Though I cannot predict the future, I can predict the work and effort I put in today. And my drive to overcome will result in success. I promise you that. I've been in the gym since the day the NBA season ended. No time can be wasted. This is a critical period in my career that can break or make me. I feel I have a point to prove. Rejuvenate my life and direction. My last couple of years with the Detroit Pistons has not panned out to my expectations. The situation got worst by the year. I don't blame the fans for their frustration in me and my team. But don't give up on me just yet. I'm now a free agent. I can sit here today and look forward towards a brighter future, a next step. This future is determined by the hard work I'm committed to deliver today. Believe in me. 

Stay tuned, stay connected with me. This is my NEW blog on I will provide you with frequent posting sharing my experience. A weekly webisode is in the works. This is my NEW website, which is now live at: This is my NEW social media presence: @CVBelieve (Twitter & Instagram). The next journey has begun. Follow this hashtag #BELIEVEINCHARLIE and witness transformation.

Thank you so much to those who've always shown me continuing support. I appreciate the love.
