What up What up!! Hope that everyone had a great summer this year! It was a great summer for me, got a chance to rest my body after getting a little banged up last year and to get stronger. We had another great Larry O'Bannon basketball camp this summer at Collegiate H.S. and we are already looking forward to camp in 2011. This year I am in Haifa and I am excited for the talent that we have on our team. It is still preseason but the real thing starts up on Sunday Oct. 17th with our first game in Holon.
We had a ten day road trip to the U.S. to have an exhibition game against the New Jersey Nets and we had a lot of fun. It was funny to view my teammates with so much excitement over seeing an NBA arena and practice facility. Their eyes got even bigger when they got to see New York City and the different land marks that they had to offer there ( Empire St. building, Time Square, Statue of Liberty, etc..). I got a chance to have my family at the game so it was good to see them and hang out with them for a little bit while I could. We played pretty well with the New Jersey Nets but in the end they just had too many big bodies for our team to deal with. I didn't shoot the ball well either (1-11) and was still trying trying to get my legs into shape. Overall we had a great experience and a great bonding trip for our team since we are so young. Looking forward to having a great season and writing some great blogs!! Til then...Peace!
