Lonely Liam was known as the quiet, odd, weird, boy who never had friends, and the kid in school no one even acknowledged. John told his friends that they should invite him to play with them. Not being a surprise to John they laughed and said "yeah right he couldn't fit in even if he tried". John told his friends "everyone judges Lonely Liam but yet knows nothing about him so lets give him a try". They just walked away from John and John was left feeling curious. John went up to liam feeling awfly strange. He asked him why he had been watching John and his friends lately so much from afar. Liam responded by saying he has always been interested in playing ball and has never had the opportunity to play. John asked him if he wanted to play and Liam excitingly said yes!
John and Liam went up to Keven, Andy, and Michael and said" Liam is going to start playing ball with us. The gang pulled John to the side and said they were not willing to risk their reputation just because of Johns curiosities. John said give him a chance or you guys will not be in my team anymore as I am the captain and choose my teammates. They all started to play ball. They assumed that being in 5th grade, Liam would know at least the basics of basketball. They assumed wrong. They would pass the ball to Liam and he would drop it. Liam did not know how to shoot or dribble the ball either. As John was studying him, he realized that once his friends knew Liam did not know how to play, they would bully him by throwing the ball in his face and make him shoot from places to far. They would make Liam run to much knowing that his shoes were very old, worn out, and not in a condition to play. They would constantly laugh in his face. This really pissed John off.
