The time has finally come. Tomorrow 9:30pm is when it all matters. I play my first game of basketball in years. For the last year i have been preparing for it and focusing on my fitness and making sure i can run for 40 minutes straight, in slow jogging, distance, hilly and flat areas and fast paced running. I must admit, im nervous as all fuck. I have high hopes and i really hope i am fitter then my direct match up. Im going to give him hell and put him off his game mentally in the very first minute. So here is what i expect, 10 points, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks and at least one steal. At the same time as being nervous im so excited that i finally get to go out and have a run and compete . Im also gonna test my team mates tomorrow night, my plan is to do a hard foul on the player on me so that he and his team mates react and start pushing me around, then the test will be on my team mates and how they deal with it, will they stand up for me? or will they just let me battle it out myself? I think its very important to know what your team mates are like in a situation like that. Don't get me wrong im not into fights but i am into testing people and to see how far they will go for you. At the end of the day what happens on the court stays on the court, and team mates are not team mates if they are not there for you when you need them. I will make sure i tell them after the game what i did was on purpose to see their reaction, i see it as a team building exercise. I'll tell them exactly what i want out of them and let them know what a team is all about. I will feel so gutted if i dont peform tomorrow night and will feel that all this hardwork has gone to waste. If i do have a bad week i'm going to take it out on the track and make sure i'll work as hard as i ever had to make sure im ready for next week.
I got my singlet and shorts made up i chose to wear number 36. Above the 36 on the back it says STAT. Stat stands for Standing Tall And Talented. Cocky much? hahah i love it. Im gonna jog down to the stadium an hour early tomorrow to practice my jump shot and the 3 point money ball. I've been practicing my shot with my brother who is also on my team and also backing down to the ring. If my team dont win this years final ill be upset and will make sure we win next year, if they are not in it to win it all then ill make sure i can take on all 5 players. Wish me luck!
