American basketball player

The odds may not have looked good for NBA star Glenn Robinson. Born January 10, 1973, to Christine Bridgeman, an unmarried teenager, Robinson had little contact with his father, who often found himself in trouble with the law. Robinson's neighborhood in Gary, Indiana, was riddled with crime and drugs, but under Bridgeman's guidance, Robinson stayed straight. Once, Bridgeman pulled Robinson off the high school basketball team when she thought his grades were too low. The fledgling basketball star carried tools and worked at an air-conditioning and refrigeration shop to earn money.
