It’s the last ten seconds of the 4th quarter of the final basketball state championships. We are down 98-100 and we just got then ball, the Oregon Panthers. I was open in for a three as the ball bounced to with 2 seconds to take my shot. I took my quick stance and launch a deep three. The clock hits one the zero. The buzzer goes off making its deaf defying noise, all of a sudden everything went silent for about two seconds, Then all you heard was a snap like the net was broken off, and everyone was cheering and screaming. The whole team ran to me and started hugging and piling up on me. I made the three and won us the championships, I Amir had just proved everyone wrong, I am great at basketball…. “Thump”, aghh what happened?”. I said in a small voice. I caught myself heavy breathing in excitement. “It was just a dream”.
Hey, My names Amir, and really i’ve been the football type of guy… unlike my whole family. My parents and sister adore playing basketball. See my mom and dad used to play on teams throughout middle and highschool back in Chicago, I mean they still do but, that's not the point. Now they live in wisconsin where i’ve been born. My sister on the other hand is like my mom and dad put together... and she´s younger than me! Then I’m here, known for being the worst basketball player ever, like I can barely make one three pointer if I had a million chances. I wasn't always the greatest at ball though, but I have my ups and downs between times I’ve played in my life. At school me and my friends all have good times playing basketball, and they think i'm pretty good at it, but I think other wise.
It was just a regular school day, long and boring learning about something we don't even need to know till high school. The only good thing about today is that it’s Friday which means the weekend and we have freedom for two more days is after this class. The bell gave us its mean killing sound. I bolted through the doors straight outside to the fresh breeze of air, having all my friends follow the race outside. “FREEDOM” I screamed, as everyone around me was laughing and chanting. My squad started arguing and fussing on who called hanging with me this weekend. My friend Owen told me that next week is when school ball and basketball tryouts start and he said that I should join. After he said that everyone broke in and started agreeing with him. “Yeah you should join Amir”, Yeah Amir you're really good you gotta join!” I was hearing just about everything every which way, but I ignored. My bus is here I gotta bounce, but Iĺl think about it” I yelled.
I got home at around 4:05 and started heading toward my garage. The weather was actually very nice, The sun was blazing high in the sky as a cool steady breeze ran along with it. I ran to the back of my garage where I found my basketball, and took of to the park across the street from me. Once I got there I went up to the three point line and got ready to take my daily three pointers like usual, but something happened. When I took my for and let the ball fly I had sunk It straight into the hoop. I laughed, “must just be luck, right?”. But then I grabbed the ball again and splashed it in making another three. And in that moment I kept taking shot after shot and my form was getting better and continued banging in the shots.
