I caught the ball in the open end of the court for the fast break; I was all alone on one end of the court dibbling to the basket, everyone called out "Dunk it! dunk it!" but they didn't know I couldn't dunk it so I layed it up through my legs.
I was 18 years old and 6'3 the forth tallest player on my basketball team; I was the only player who couldn't dunk. Even 5'7 Mike could dunk it, but not me. I could only barley touch the ring, the whole team laughed at me because I couldn't even touch the ring, even the coach.
Rip was 6 foot and had shoes with a round pump on the front, every time he played basketball he pumped up his shoes. I thought it was the shoes which made him jump higher than the entire team so I bought a pair.
I pumped and pumped but it didn't make any difference.
Everyday my teammates would practice new dunks and I could only watch. I was sitting on the sideline one day watching my team showing off there new dunks to each other, when a man called Larry came up to me and said, "Do u really wanna dunk?" I said to him,"Yes!" with excitement. He said to me that in two days there will be no gravity on the entire earth. I was stunned at what he had said and didn't believe him. At 12.am you will be flying.
One day later was the day before my big grand final game and I had forgotten what that guy had said. I went to the basketball court and practiced and practiced for the big game. I wanted to dunk so much.
It was grand final, I woke up that morning...
