Diary Of A Baller: Ja'Quaye James (Englewood, NJ) Entry #9


 Yo what's popping it's your boy Ja'Quaye James aka JellyFam Guwop signing on. 

All I have to say is WOW, the Atlantic City Showcase was everything I thought it was going to be. I got to play against the top teams and talent in the country. I loved every minute of it. Even though we got beat in the semi finals. I thought with all the time we had off we would look really rusty, but we played good I thought. We went 2-2 on the weekend and got to see what we need to work on to be the #1 team in the country. But #3 ain't bad. I promise we will kick up in nationals. 

Wanna give a shout out to WACG and Team IZOD cause I felt we are some of the top teams in the country and we competed at a high level and gave our parents and supporters that came out what they came to see. As for me my favorite moments this weekend was against WACG and Team IZOD. WACG did not know me, but they do now. I had the first 3 baskets, but the coach still said I was shaky, rip him, so next play down I called ISO play for me I crossed went behind my back and spin off and caught the and 1. That got my team and I going against IZOD. I had a bunch of dimes, but the best thing was just going against my brother Jahvon and talking trash to him on the court...he hit a 3 on us, I came right back down and hit one too, the whole game everybody was going at it...But as the weekend concluded I feel I was the best PG hands down. I had my team playing hard, I was dishing and scoring, but now I know, I just need to do a little bit more of everything and we will become the team holding up the banner at the end of every tournament. 

All in all the weekend was great. My Grandma and my aunts came out and of course my #1Fan my baby sister Jordann. The games were good, and I closed any doors that might have been open about me. 

Shout Out to Mike Melton and Basketball Spotlight for putting that together. Great Weekend and I'm signing off Mr. NY/NJ!!! Get down or lay down. PLAYAZFAM Men lie Women lie numbers don't. 

 PS: Felt good to have my lil big bro Armani Sexton back on the court. Keep you cool I got you. LOL!!!
