A Site to be Seen
Some days I wish the world was able to see the amount of talent behind these walls. Creativity is at an all-time high back here. Above all though, you have some people who can play any and every sport like professionals. Yesterday I participated in a game where a man scored 54 points. It wasn’t that no one was watching him it was that he could get open and shoot the ball from any distance. What I am talking about when I say any distance, I am talking about six to seven feet behind the three point line. Even though we were playing a game I still watched in amazement. You have some men who just work on their game day in and day out and it shows on the court. You have some who can jump and dunk and could probably compete in the NBA dunk contest. Some aren’t even 21 and some are above the age of 40. You have so much talent, that’s all I’m saying. If people had a chance to see it they’d enjoy it because it is rough and raw. The gym is real small and stuffy, especially when all the inmates come to see the game. People play their hardest and it’s all for respect. They play hard because they are passionate. Even though I hate being here, I can say that I’ve witnessed a couple of people who could’ve played in the NBA if circumstances were different. The bottom line is that I am not the only good athlete back here.
