The tribute comes as no surprise, given that the martial artist has played a big part in Murray’s football and baseball career. 

Before having the pendant made by ZoFrost and Co., the athlete posted several inspirational quotes from Lee, which has motivated him through the years.

Lee was recently portrayed in the Quentin Tarantino film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” as an arrogant and prideful man, as his daughter Shannon sees it.

A PROMISING CAREER

The Arizona Cardinals quarterback is in the second year of his career, and suggested CeeDee Lamb as a receiver, the team’s general manager Steve Keim revealed. 

He also compared the two athletes to Texans star DeAndre Hopkins and added that Murray’s faith in Lamb could give “confidence” to the performance.

Murray and Lamb previously played together in 2018, where the receiver hauled in 65 passes and had 11 touchdowns, making him a top in his class. Murray said of their “great” relationship:

“That’s one of my boys. I would obviously be very fond of that pick. Obviously, I don’t make the choices. I’m looking forward to free agency and us adding some great players.”

GREAT ATHLETES

Murray’s career has been blooming in the past months, thanks to the motivation he gets from the late Lee’s ideologies and wisdom.

Dan Inosanto, Lee’s protegee, also criticized how the movie chose to portray Lee, claiming that he was not arrogant, but confident in his work.

Several others agreed with Shannon and Inosanto, and remain confident that real Lee was a humble man with a good heart and persevering attitude.
