The Comption Three

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Liam Knightley10z THE COMPTON THREE We go back through the streets of Los Angeles and we see a scruffy basketball court, packed with "ballers," some of these players could have been professionals and gone to college if they hadn't been caught up in the gangster, drug-dealing lifestyle. As we walk through the barbwire gate, we look over and see money being placed into a hat, all of the players put twenty dollars in each; the money is shared between the winning team. As we scan across the court we see teams of three warming up, to be ready for the big tournament, every team believes it can win, but the favourites to win are a group of three who have been together since the little leagues. The team call themselves the Compton Three because that's what their teacher in junior high called them. The team captain is arguably the best player on court today, his name is CJ Styles, he's a six foot seven, Afro-American and a bit of a show-off on court but when he is not playing ball he's very shy and quiet. ...read more.

Half an hour latter the teams have finished warming up, and they are just getting some vital water on board before they start playing in the blazing ninety degrees sun. The Compton three and the LBC are ready to start. CJ is standing in the centre waiting for the tip, giving his opposite number a murderous stare; you could cut the tension with a knife. Steve is standing around ten yards away from the centre although he doesn't feel nervous his legs and arms are like leaves shaking in the wind. Sam is standing under the net waiting, waiting, it seemed to take forever but he was ready to fulfil his defensive duties. Styles wins the tip and slaps the ball back to Steve, he takes the ball up with every intention of scoring, but then Sam makes a late burst into the key. Steve fakes the shot and passes the ball off to Sam, he takes it to the hole and dunks the ball home. The whole game goes Compton's way and they win. ...read more.

Conclusion

The spectators look on with amazement, the whole place is silent and then whack! The worst sound Steve wanted to hear, the ball had bounced off the back of the ring and dropped into one of the veterans hands. He passed the ball up to the other end, Sam used all of his defensive qualities but it wasn't good enough the veterans had too much experience and finished the game with a simple lay up. Samuel and CJ go home saddened, but Steve stays and practices the fundamentals of his game. He doesn't practice the dunk he missed he practices his jump shots and his lay ups. He knew he could do the flashy stuff but he also knew he could win games by playing it cool and simple. The next week the team get to the final again but this time the Compton three keep their cool in the midday sun killing the veterans who were looking to win two weeks in a row. The boys won by five whole points. Sam could now buy his trainers for real. ...read more.
