Just a few weeks ago I showed up at the gym and we shot for captains. Of course I knocked down the top of the key jump shot and was rewarded with the first pick. The guy I was picking against didn’t have a clue who could really play so he didn’t have any business picking anyways. Needless to say I was able to assemble what seemed like a monster squad. I had the best shooter, the best scorer, and the best rebounder in the gym on my squad, not to mention the best ball handler and passer, but I wasn’t trying to give myself props in this piece.
We easily won the first game and it appeared we had an all day squad. All we had to do was do what we do, and everything was going to be alright. Well let’s just say that didn’t happen. After winning the first game 12 – 2, things really went south. We played some guys who weren’t that bad, but had no business on the floor with us and they gave us their best but we managed to beat them with a pretty lucky shot 12 – 11.
The third game we got destroyed. Some guys, half of whom I wouldn’t even pick up in a normal game totally dismantled us. See the problem wasn’t how great the other team played against us, the problem was we stopped doing what we do. We transformed ourselves into the Miami Heat.
