It’s the end of an era for this young man, anyway. With five seconds on the clock and a tie game – the final game of the regular season – he took the inbounds pass, drove all the way down court, and executed a perfect layup as the buzzer sounded. Avoiding the charge, the ball rolled tantalizingly around the rim, bouncing precariously, before dropping through the net.
Well done young man. I’m proud to know you, and so happy I was there to get the shot. This one’s for you.
