Diary Of A Baller: Malachi "Shoota" Richardson (Trenton, NJ) Entry #4

What's Up Everybody! Last week was a good week for your boy the "Shoota". I'm finally getting used to being in Catholic School and all the different things they do. We have block scheduling so I'm in the class a lot longer which also means we go over more material. We attend Mass every Friday. And Mass was something I've never done before, it involves a lot of standing and sitting and they sing a few songs. It's all good though!

When I went to my workouts this week, a few college coaches were there. None of the coaches were there to check me out, but I did introduce myself to the coach from Syracuse, that's my dream school. The players were working hard in front of the coaches and it's a great opportunity for them to be seen. Next year when I'm in high school I'll have the same opportunity.

Friday night, me and my boy Naz Chew went to a party it was fun. When my mom picked me up the next day, I got screamed on because I didn't call and tell my parents I was staying overnight at Naz's house. I know that was irresponsible, but I was tired and fell asleep.

Saturday afternoon, my brother, uncle and a few of their boys came over to play ball. We played 3 on 3, and of course my team didn't lose a game. The games started out pretty easy, but the more we won the more intense it got. It turned into hacking, intentional fouling, making calls and not giving up the ball, and a lot of talking/arguing. I don't know if they bet on the games but it sure felt like it, nobody passed any money off to me so maybe they didn't bet. It's funny the dude that's not that good is always the one on the sideline hyping everything up. We kept winning so I was cool with it.


Catch me next week,

Malachi "Shoota" Richardson.....PEACE
