I can literally stare at this picture forever. Tears can easily be shed. I've always been a very emotional person and I would never change that about myself because it shows how passionate I can be about life. As we grow up we get all these responsibilities and we make certain decision through out life that just alter us in a way that we'd never thought possible. I miss basketball so much.
I would always play. After school. Before school. I'd cut school to
Go play ball. It was a way of life. I swore to myself that I'd never give it up. I don't know exactly where I broke that promise but I regret it dearly. It was my getaway from my rebel days. It kept me sane when everyone and everything was driving me insane. It helped me gather my thoughts when I was in a whirlwind.
Someone may read this and say "he's overreacting so much". Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. When you love something so much you never lose the passion for it. I may not be as fast as I once was, but I'm stronger. I may not jump as high as I used to, but I'm smarter. The Game of Basketball has been so synonymous with
My life. It helped me get through many things. I'm glad I'm getting back in the gym on November 30th. I will definitely cherish every last drop of sweat, every missed and made shot and all the emotions that will come out of this Tournament. Last year we lost the Championship Game and this year I intend on getting that trophy. Can't wait.
