This commercial shows exactly why Rockford and people across the globe, love NBA champion Fred VanVleet. 

We will never know just how many people in Fred's life told him he'd never make it playing basketball. Maybe he even heard, a time or two, that he'd never make it at anything. Those kinds of messages are so destructive, but for some, they are just the right fuel to power an individual to outwork the rest and become the best. THAT. IS. FRED VANVLEET.

American Express is launching a new card called, the American Business Edge card, and they chose Fred to inspire others who are hustling to build their empire.

There is nothing about Fred VanVleet's story that doesn't make me feel amazing. The son, the brother, the friend, the husband, the father, the basketball player. This young man is such an inspiration.
