I have always felt ive had a strong drive of determination and ambition to be something out of the ordinary. Everyone would love to play a pro sport, but who would put their heart and soul into it? I am this guy. I love basketball, everything about it, from the jumpers, to the hard fouls, to the late nights of running and working on my game alone. I use Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade and Jason Williams as guys i look upto, guys with strong work ethic (Jason Williams when he was a kid practising in his gym his dad had the keys to, similar to me).
My drive to make it somewhere started to decrease a bit having a girlfriend and being so committed, but now recently after a year, we decided to be friends since she wanted to be with friends more and leaving no time for me, not fair to either of us… Anyways, its tough but the way she treated me near the middle of our relationship towards the end is questionable… so people say it’s best for me, i think the same way. If it happens again, She’ll come to me… and thats a decision i’ll have to make.
Anyways, Im 18 and my buddies are out drinking and having fun… living their lives as they tell me, while im in the gym working on my game, my turn around jumper, running baselines, and coming home after to lift weights, or else before. I play pickup as much as possible. I practise at game speed, and game situations. Im great at visualizing while i practise. Having the girlfriend, left me undecided about school andive missed ID camps for the Fall.
I hope a team will give me a chance, but anyways, tell me what u think. I have a dream of making the NBA or a Euro league team. I know itll be a tough long road. But im ready for it, all i want is a chance. A team or coach to take a chance on me, I wont make a fool of anyone…
