Example text

Every day after school, I’d go home, change clothes, and head straight to the courts to play basketball until 6 o’clock. When I was in the seventh grade, a few other boys and I started sneaking into the Biltmore gym to play. I always played with older guys. One of them had the idea of hiding someone in the bathroom, and then when the head of the physical education department would go home at 4 o’clock, our guy would come out of the bathroom and pop the gym door open and we’d play on the court inside.

Not because I saw it taking me anywhere. MY FAMILY NEVER had a television until I was six years old. I thought it was a new invention. We got two channels and sometimes a third. Not long after we got the television, one of my grandfathers visited and suggested we watch a baseball game. To this day, one of my favorite numbers is 7, because during the game that day they showed footage of Mickey Mantle hitting a home run left-handed and a home run right-handed. The announcers also talked about how Mantle was the fastest player in all of baseball.

But that night it was us. We panicked. We didn’t defend. We didn’t run back on defense. When our guys came over to the sideline for timeouts, they had a beaten look. They were not walking up on their toes, carrying themselves like they were going to win. They were shuffling around with their heads down and their shoulders slumped. None of them had the confidence that their teammates could get it done, so they didn’t play as a team. Each of them was thinking, “I’ve got to make the shot. ” We lost that game by three points.
