It was the last quarter and Hayden 's team had the ball so Lebron Jeffreys had the ball and Lebron went to pass to Hayden. Hayden was wide open because the defense went and trapped Lebron so Lebron threw it to Hayden and Hayden SLAMMED DUNKED it!

Thursday night and for the third time in a row I was not mentioned in the starting line up. I was completely dishearten at this point. 65 minutes in the game, my coach told me to warm up.
