"We used to have a coach who said 'the ship is sailing,' " says Rashad. "What that meant was the ship is sailing with or without you. You're on the boat or you're not on it.

Then his next thought was "let's make sure I've got another boat to get on."
With NBA basketball, NFL football, "Notre Dame Saturday," "NBA Inside Stuff" and "NBA Off the Court," Rashad is now sailing a fleet.
