september is near...

and im getting in game shape really good...

i love the feeling...

conditioning...

and i got my vert back... just after two days of rest... i can grab the rim again...

i "tested" my vert and athleticism today and my game shape conditioning...

blocked a shot (a floater/teardrop)... sprinted... and slap the backboard lay up on the other end fastbreak...

and went back on defense smiling... jogging of course! lol.

i played six pick up games today...

and i did sprints before the games...

so its all good...

september is getting near...

i can feel that i will dunk in one of those games and try outs!

lol... maybe!


good job man! kill those tryouts!

i made the team man... i was so happy...

we had scrimmages... i was just dominating..

i was in shape... didnt gas out... did all the drills...

everything...

then we had our first game yesterday...

i was really amazing...

41 points man! hahaha! i was in shock... even my team mates and the whole crowd...

we were down by ten points... and i told myself... this is it... this my time... then boom... i exploded... it felt like i was unstoppable... all my shots were goin in...

i didnt eat... no water...

i was 100 %!

there was three sick high lights...

2 blocks... one guy was taking it to the hole... attacking right in front of me... we met at the top... i swatted the shot back... to my team mate! the crowd was crazy! the second block.... was a help block... he thought that he had an easy shot... coz he  had beaten his man... then boom! i went up! and spiked that shit! into the stands! lebron or dwight block! and the momentum was ours! and the whole crowd was super crazy! the adrenaline!

last but not the least....

a 3 point buzzer beater! for the win! there was no better feeling man... it was my nba moment! lol.

one goal accomplished... all the haters were silent! haha! and i made the team!

thanks man...

i will continue to work even harder...

Sounds like a sick game. You need to send some of your shot-making mojo to zgin.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

there was one creepy thing that happened during the game...

my team-mate... was saying bad stuff to me... coz he was on the bench not playing... i can hear him...

he saying bad words... hating on me...

then all of the sudden...

our coach told him to to play...

not even a minute...

just a few seconds...

boom!

he fell on the ground... screaming like someone was cutting off his legs.... i was having goosebumps...

he was rushed to the hospital...

MRI... X RAY...

result... complete ACL...

just sharing it...

2 years ago... i was a role player...

last year... i didnt even score...

all i do was rebound... defense... all the dirty work....

so i told myself...

i have to redeem myself... i will work my ass off... for this...

they were all hating on me... doubting me...

my team mates telling me i cant play guard...

they were telling me that just be a center/forward...

i know in myself that i worked harder than everyone this summer and preseason...

i didnt say a word...

i let my game talk...

they were all speechless and in shock...

it was like a proving ground!

500 shots a day + working on athleticism/vertical jump/ speed/ and conditioning + hustling + grinding + heart + dedication +faith + prayer = success...

"A change is gonna come"

"Go to the? ant o sluggard, they store up and work!" Now...go out and work like an ant!!! Do what it takes, and keep your passion!

Don't Cry to give up. Cry to keep going!!!!

damn, regardless of what he was saying, injuries suck and I wish them on no one.. if he had punched you in the face, different story hehehe

that really sucks for him, shit like that is scary, can happen to anyone at anytime.. just got to be as in shape as possible, strong, etc to really reduce that risk.

peace man

i have a question...

there was this one player on the team we played against...

he can jump...

he was really skinny... scrawny... weak looking...

he was like grabbing the rim with both hands... effortless...

and he was only like 5'7 or even shorter...

so if i have the body of kadour ziani? i will be able to dunk? just asking...

coz that player and kadour have the same body type... really skinny...

well their are very skinny athletes who have 0 power, and those that have insane power.. it's just in the genetics, the powerful freaks that are that skinny, have great relative strength, are very lean, and usually have long tendons.. they are built to be spring-like.. then you have other skinny people who can't even jump 15".. so it's not just about having that body type, there has to be alot of power behind that skin & bone.
