“In the dust of defeat as well as the laurels of victory, there is a glory to be found if one has done his best.”
― Eric Liddell

Born in Los Angeles, California, Nebo has spent his childhood being inspired by his father, Charles, and brother, Charles Junior, who were basketball fanatics. Nebo’s ambition came from a place of passion and commitment as he would practice day and night with his friends to perfect his skills in basketball. Nebo’s father would make him watch documentaries and movies on basketball legends such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to inspire Nebo and make him understand that to become successful; you have to put in blood, sweat, and tears.
