FC: By:Greg Jaindl | The Mirical of Camp
1: I dedicate this book to Jake Feiertag, and Collin Riegel.
2: It's a hot July day perfect for playing basketball, and JaKill is on his way to do that. For a whole week at a summer basketball camp. JaKill is misunderstude when it comes to basketball, because he is short. But when you start to play him you notice his skills at fonomial, and he hammer you in the post with all his musle and strangh.
3: On the first day of camp things seem to be okay, but while JaKill Is shooting and practicing with his best freind Zay it changes. A huge, musculer kid comes walking at them. They pretend they dont see him until he comes over to them, and takes their ball. JaKill asked for it bad, but he would'ent give it back. He said it was his now, and he did'nt have to give it back.
4: The day goes one, and JaKill and Zay did not see the kid who stole their ball all day. Untill the first game started, and he was on the other team.They started to play, and JaKill had been gaurding him. JaKill could not do anything agianst him. He tried driving to the basket, jump shots, floaters, but nothing worked or went in. He could not play defense on him either.
5: Finally the buzzer sounded, and JaKill was acully happy it was over. The nightmare of that game was over. JaKill ended up with 0 points and 7 turnovers. It was his worst game ever, and at the end of the game JaKill found out the boys name it was Rehzean.
6: After the horrible game by JaKill he decides to go play a pick up game with Zay at one of the outside courts. He gets there just in time to get chosen by Zay's team, and on the other team was Rahzean. The game started to play, and agian JaKill could not do anything agianst Rahzean. Agian it was one of JaKill's worst games ever, and right at the end of the game JaKill was about to score for the first time on a lay up. Then Rahzean from nowhere comes and pushes him down, and JaKill twisted his ankel very badly.
7: With JaKill having his ankle twist he could not play well in the next game, but as the season went on in the camp JaKill started to score more and more. It was amazing how well he was doing. By the end of the reguler season JaKill's team was 12-2, and had one of the best records in the camp. Coach Mello said that he never had a better team than this one right here.
8: The first playoff game was today, and JaKill's team was playing the Knicks. They were 9-5, but they were no problem for JaKill's team. They ended up winning 57 to 37. JaKill had 13 points and 0 turnovers. Rahzean's team also won their game so that means they could still play again in the playoffs, but they still had to win 2 more games for that to happen.
9: The day began with the start of the second round of the playoffs. JaKill's team will be playing the Celtics, and their record was 12-4 including the playoff win against the Thunder. Again this was not a challenge for JaKill's team, and they won again this time 61 to 43. Rahzean's team also won again, and JaKill wanted to play them so bad in the championship.
10: After the past 2 wins JaKill's team had they thought they would have an easy win, but coach Mello told the team that the team that they were playing was very good. The team was the Mavricks, and they had a record of 16-1, but yet again JaKill's team won again. This time it was different they won a buzzer beater by JaKill's 3 point shot. Now the championship was a day away, and it was against the Hornets. Which was Rahzean's team.
11: That night JaKill was so happy for getting to the championship. Even better was against Rahzean's team, so he could get play back at him for everything he has done. It was getting late, and the big game was tomorrow, so he decided to go to sleep.
12: Almost everyone was there getting something to eat. Once he was got something to eat he went to get his uniform, and shoes for the game that starts in 2 hours. | It was the day of the championship, and everybody in camp was up very early in the morning to get ready. JaKill went over to the breakfast area to get something to eat.
13: There was 30 minutes till the game started, and JaKill's team was warming up on the floor. They were getting their jump shots in, and their lay ups, and then Hornets came out to start warming up. Rahzean was shooting his jumps shots, and could not miss anything. If he keeps this up JaKill would have a hard time guarding him.
14: Once they were done warming up coach Mello took his team to the locker room. He told them if they played hard, and did not give up they could win the game. Once he was done with his talk he said the starting line up, and JaKill was in it for the first time.
17: After they walked out of the locker room the game started. The game start slow, and either of the teams shots were going in. The mid way though the half JaKill hit a three, and the game started to warm up. Everyone was hitting shots. After 20 minutes of play at half the score was 27 to 21 JaKill's team.
18: As they were walking in the hall way to the locker room for half time JaKill was thinking about the half., and remembered that Razean did not score on him. Coach Mello said he was proud of the team for doing so well, and they just had to hold this lead. Then they could finish this, and win.
21: As they walked out JaKill knew his team could win this, so he played his heart out. He ended with 16 points, and with his team winning the championship. JaKill now knew he was better then Razean he just had to play very hard. Coach Mello was very proud of his team for winning.
22: The rest of the day JaKill, and his team got congratulations from everybody. The only person in the entire camp that did not say anything to him was Rahzean, and he did not know why. Maybe he was just mad that JaKill is better than him now. Then JaKills team got their trophy.
25: After the game there was an award ceremony, and JaKill was not expecting to win anything. Then the last award was MVP, and JaKill knew he was not going to get this award. The camp leader then said, " The MVP for this year is JaKill Smith". JaKill could not belive it he never expect to win this award.
26: After winning the award JaKill was about to drive away in his parent's car when someone tapped on the window. JaKill rolled it down, and it was Razean. He said he was proud of JaKill for winning MVP, winning the championship. He also said he was sorry for being mean to him in the begginging of camp, and for stealing his ball.
28: After many years of JaKill not seeing Razean, he saw him. He was in the same collage as him, and also playing basketball with him. After 4 years of playing together in the same collage they became best freinds, and it could stay like that the entire time while their in the NBA together.
