The newly changed law that high schoolers can’t skip college and go pro is thought to be changed in the future. The current law says that the athlete must be at least 19 years old to enter the league. Whether the law is for or against high schoolers going pro, it will change basketball at all levels. From peewee to pro it will all be different. Being able to succeed in the NBA without going to college is a big topic of controversy in the sports industry.
By this time, I was working at Sears at Northridge Mall in the clothing department, where Xavier would occasionally come over to see me. On one of my days off of work, Xavier came over to the house in the evening, where he encountered the wrath of father. My dad yelled, “Get out of here you punk!” and leaped after him and kicked him down the street and told him to never come around the house again. I was peeking out my bedroom window, when my father stomped into my room, outraged he slammed the door behind him and took off his belt and began to hit me repeatedly. I cried the entire night; I was embarrassed to go to school the next day and didn’t know what I was going to tell Xavier.
Though I tried so hard, my reality hit every time I entered that train, knowing I wouldn’t go to my apartment I call home. Strangers giving me the face of sympathy and concern, I wondered why they were all looking my way, then I saw my reflection; my eyes were bloodshot and I looked like a ghost. There’s nothing that I wanted more than to eat family dinner but I knew it was a fairy tale that would never come true because the police would end up knocking at my door and take dad

Dear diary, Today will be the last time I’m writing to you because rumors have been going around that many of us will be gassed tomorrow. Because it’s been awhile since the last time i was able to write i’ll fill you in on all that has happened. After all of the jewish schools were destroyed me, my dad, mom, grandmother, and four siblings packed up and moved from our home in Kaluszyn to my dad friends house in Minsk Mazowiecki. Soon after we got to Minsk Mazowiecki however, the natzis forced all jews to live in a small part of town with few houses so we had many roommates. It got to the point where my grandmother had to go back to Kaluszyn to live with my aunt.
Fernando began to say good-bye to his friends before he headed up the hill to his house. He typically stayed out until midnight on a regular day playing with friends from his small town, but tomorrow he had to be up early. His older brothers had gotten married a few months ago, so now at the age of 16 it was his turn to go over to the United States or to him “El Norte” to work and support the rest of the family. He woke to a sudden sound of the door opening, it was his dad, Jose, telling him it was time to get up and hurry because they were leaving in a few minutes. Fernando rushed to put on his clothes and carried his small backpack to the kitchen.
How did you lose them Kendall? My family and I were having a game night and we were playing hide and seek and they have been hiding for 7 years now. “It 's ok I’ll help you find them Kendall” Roscoe said politely. Hopefully we don 't run into any cats on the way because one day I got attacked by one and It hurt really bad,
I was uncertain will I ever be able to make him proud and receive that love that I always dream about. Nov 22nd 2010, it was Dad’s birthday we had very sophisticated dinner that night, but it suddenly changed. Dad called me in his room and asked me about a paper lying on his desk. It was my drawing that I did in graffiti class at school. My heart was beating fast.
I used to be so oblivious. I would attend school every day and criticize my surroundings, little did I know how much I actually had. Come junior year, I observed a flyer for a club called S.A.L.T. (Student-Athlete Leadership Team), it seemed interesting to me so I decided to fill out an application. During our first meeting at 6:45 in the morning, Coach Jones, the head of the club, explained, “I did not cut anyone since you will cut yourself, you will give up and you will not want to put the work in, so you will stop coming.
As a die-hard Dallas Mavericks fan, it’s very difficult for me to like the guy I’m about to tell you all to draft. During the offseason, DeAndre Jordan committed to jump ship and leave the Los Angles Clippers to sign with the Mavs. If you haven’t been living under a rock over the last few months, you know how this story played out and why I may be a bit sour about it. Anyways, Jordan is a the Center that I suggest everyone target in the upcoming NBA fantasy drafts. It’s strange to think that Jordan is coming into his eight NBA season for the Clippers.
