Today started off on a very positive note. I was supposed to get a ticket cause I forgot to move my car since it was street cleaning day. I didn’t get a ticket since the meter maids were feeling generous I guess. The highlight of my day was playing ball though. It’s funny cause I was supposed to meet up with a couple of my friends, but they left when I got there -_-. I decided to stick around anyways and see if there were any pick up games I could get in on. I ended up staying there for a good 4-5 hours. During those couple hours, I played at least 10 pick up games. Our team won 5 or 6 of them, which in my opinion, is pretty good. I got a couple blocks and shot the lights out, BUT (huge but, hence the capitalization lol) I still have a lot to work on to get my game back to its prime. I was a bit slow out there and as a result, I didn’t defend as well. My jumper is still smooth and I still got my stroke, so I’m not complaining too much.
I haven’t had time to hoop in a couple months. Since I’m on break and have hella time now, I decided to get back on my grind. I’m so damn rusty, but after my little workout I think I’m almost back to normal. It’s always funny seeing those kids who try to look good and can’t hoop for shit. They’re always trying to pull off some fancyass move, but they can’t even make a layup lol. Work on your fundamentals first and foremost. Oh, and your “gear” doesn’t make you anymore skilled as a player. I played against this one fool who wore knee pads, a shooting sleeve, and all this other junk, but he was doo doo. I guess some people take the “it’s got to be the shoes” literally. Comon now son, you’re wearing jays, but you can’t play whatsoever. Better invest that $100+ on developing your skills instead of on your kicks haha. During this month a lot of people are going to die cause imma be murderin’ on the court. Better get that ankle insurance ready lol.
I woke up early just so I could win an auction on ebay. When I got on, I couldn’t even bid because I found out that the seller had blocked me. That fucking bitchass! I think he blocked everyone and only let one seller bid on it because he only wanted to sell to that fool he knew. It’s stupid though because he could’ve just created a private auction. What he doesn’t know is that I created another ebay account and I was the one who won the bid lol.
