Diary Of A Baller: Lamar "Fresh" Kimble (Team Final) Entry #9

Hello Basketball World. It’s "Fresh" back to tell you about my week. This week was about moving on to the next level in basketball. Monday Team Final had a game and we bounced back from the last week’s performance to win against Camden Catholic by 15, everybody had a good game. There were no official practices for Team Final this week, but I can't go a whole week without a workout. So, Tuesday Coach Pervis gave me a personal workout. We worked on new finishing moves and what to do in different situations. Coach P came at me for 3 mins and I was sore for 2 days... Lol Wednesday I missed my 1 on 1 with Coach Fred. I was supposed to be taking a quick nap but fell asleep for 4 hours.

Thursday and Friday there was no school. Thursday I stayed in and watched Derrick Rose go at the Knicks even though they lost he always brings heart to the game. Then I watched KD and B-Roy go at it. I learned a lot from both games. Friday both Malik and I took advantage of our day off and had another 1 on 1 with Coach Pervis, we went over the same things from Tuesday, but it’s all new to me so it was important that I processed what he was teaching me. Malik stayed the night we went to my game at the Aztecs Future Legends League. We won against PYO (Horace Spencer) 41-16. For a team that has only played together for a few weeks with no bigs we have great chemistry. Then we ended the night watching the PG battle between D-Rose and Rajon Rondo before checking my #1 player Carmelo go hard at the Clippers.

Saturday Team Final had 2 games in the Funsport League. It was the start of regular season, and we got out the car ready to make a statement. The first game was against LI Lightning. Due to injuries and shortage of players we brought two of our young players Tyus Battle and Nate Louis-Pierre. I have to take time to give them their props. Even though the teams were big with more experience they played excellent. Both played very great defense. I must say "Thank You" to the both of them because we needed them and they came to play. Back to the games.... As a team we did good against LI' s 6'6 center especially without Treyvaughn Wilkerson and Tim Delaney, we won by 15 or 20. The 2nd game we played CP3 Elite, we started out doing too much, but once we buckled down we pulled out the "W" by 10. I love the man on the MIC he give you nicknames. Sam"The Relentless", Malachi "Mr. Nice" and me "Baby J-Kidd. That was a long day we didn't get home until 1 am but it was well worth it. So you know what I did on Sunday laid back and watched sports. Til next week, size doesn’t matter if you bring your "A" GAME.
Stay tuned for more from Lamarr "Fresh" Kimble
