If Orlando Magic forward Tobias Harris ever needs inspiration, he never has to look outside his own family.
His 90-year-old grandfather, Lt. Col. John Mulzac, is a role model.
In 1942, when the armed forces were segregated, Mulzac joined the U.S. Army Air Corps. He became one of America's first black military pilots, a group known as the Tuskegee Airmen.
"He always told us as kids that we could do anything in this world if we put our mind to it," Harris said, a smile on his face. "He's been definitely an inspiration to me, and I love him to death."
On Wednesday night, Mulzac plans to turn on his TV in the Brooklyn, N.Y., home he shares with his wife of 67 years and watch the Magic face the Phoenix Suns in Phoenix.
