I had my basketball there, and Jared and Conner both love basketball. I asked them if they wanted to play a game of pick-up on the bone-dry concrete. They both said yes simultaneously like two birds mating. As a group of three, we walked to the basketball courts. Well if you count running as fast as a tiger walking.
I started with the ball because it was me against them. I didn’t think that it was unfair because I was two times better than them. I dribbled the ball up to the foul line. Both of them were on me like eagles on a mouse. I had to use my special move called the toss and run. I toss the ball high in the air so it would distract them. Then I run around them and catch the ball. After that, I shoot. This time when I shot, it rolled around on the rim and swiveled in. Yes, 2 to nothing. Like stealing candy from a baby!
They had the ball and they played a pass play perfectly. Conner dribbled up and swiftly passed to Jared. Being the ball hog he is, shot the ball. Of course it swished right into the net, 2 to 2. I sunk in displeasure. I thought to myself “That ball hog Jared” though I was proud of him.
The game went on for an hour and a half like this. The score was 46 to 48, I was winning. We promised that this would be the last play. Conner and Jared drove up with the ball. I was thinking “This is it.” I played the best defense I ever had in my life. When of course Jared shot it, I jumped as high as a bunny and stopped the shot. I had a silent celebration in my head before I went back to my last drive.” I hope I score,” I thought.
I ran up to the net, jumped so high. And BANG, I dunked the ball to win the game. Jared got a little mad but not too mad, and Conner didn’t seem mad. They both shook my hand and told me good game. Even though that I knew that Jared didn’t really mean that it was a good game. After that, Jared and Conner went home, So did I.
That basketball game was pretty fun. Even though Jared didn’t think that it was, or so I thought. I got home and had to go to bed. When I was lying down, I thought “This has been the best day of my life. I got to play basketball with my friends, and I had fun.”
