The ball went straight to me as it was deflected by Zack to my side.
I immediately used my skill LImitless Range even though it will drain me 5 hp but the 3 pts will be worth it. I shot the ball as soon I caught it and the 1st stringers were shocked that I just threw the ball like that and even my teammates were shocked except for Mr. Lopez everybody was shocked even Mr. John was shocked as he only heard that I can shoot it at Half Court but behind Half Court that is just crazy.
The ball went into a high arc almost hitting the ceiling and down it goes straight into the basket *swish all net did not even hit the ring.
Everyone looked at me with shocked eyes and I just smiled at them before I changed my expression to a serious one shouting.
DEFENSE! then everyone woke up from that shock and my teammates went into formation.
Nicholas is bringing the ball down and I look at the shot clock and he is still not yet crossed the half court with 18 secs left on the shot clock. I just watch him closely and see any strange movements but none. Then I look to the clock 16 secs already but why is there no call for 8 second violation. Then I look again shit he is gone there where is he. I look in front of me and he was there staring me in the eye as if I was just his prey waiting to be eaten. I got mad being looked like that so I Automatically activated my Emperor Eye which I can only use 3 times per day as I have not fully mastered yet like Akashi. I look at Nicholas dead straight in the eye and I see an opening I swipe my hand there to intercept but when I looked again why am I falling?....
I got tricked and I fell down and just looked in hate as I was defeated in a 1vs1 challenge and this is a disgrace for me even if you say he is older by 6 years from me. I got so angry that I stood up and chased him and I accidentally hit him with that rage and I saw his eyes smiling at me like it was all planned. And I look at the referee calling a Technical Foul at me. Shit I messed up. and I look at Nicholas again with a blank expression as if nothing happened. I need to compose myself I should be better than this how will I ever achieve success in the NBA if I am like this. I need to be composed and poised, I am the captain I should lead and not go into useless struggles
