Feels Good to Sweat





Had a basketball session with some friends in Old Klang Road last night, that's more than 6 months ago from the previous one.

Get ready at home around 730pm after my friend called and remind me about the game, then I cant find a Basketball Pants ! Damm ! So ended up wearing a short pant that got a hole right at the 'Balls' area, just lucky the hole didnt get any bigger and no one noticed about the hole.

Great game it was as most the fellas there are not bad, god in fact compare to my droped down skill level and the extra 35KGs that I've gain lately, really can run as fast or jump as high compare to my high school time, where I am in School team, Point Guard I was playing.

First Game ( Game ends when either team scored 7 balls ) was good till the 5th Scored, I almost can feel my lungs and my throat are burning, feet are not listening to me and keep running at their own will, or rather ' Dont want to move' at their own will. I want my Stamina back ! I want to score and block, but dammit, my body is not listening to me. Take a deep breath and try to slow down abit, ask the team mates to pass me the ball and let me have control over the game ( used to be very good of that ). Slowed down the game, more passes around the field, confuse the opponents by asking the team mates to do more crossing under the basket. While I go around the court with the ball trying to look for empty slot for the the teammates to go in and score. Seems like it's working well coz we are leading the game with 3 balls scored ahead, and 1 more ball to finish the game ... Won the game by passing the ball to a un-guarded mate at the 3 point line...

The following games seems to be better as for some reason I can feel my lungs and the body is listening to me again. Score a few balls and the times is almost up for the court. 2 Balls from winning the last game ( 3 straight wins before this ), I tripped, badly landing with my upper butt on the floor. My whole got numb, I cant even move a finger. All the others were shocked and want to help trying to turn me around so I can have sit an rest on the floor, which they fail to do so as my back was so painful I cant even turn around and sit ... Kneeling on the floor a a minute or 2, and the numb was gone, I want to continue the game, and ofcoz end the game by winning the game. It's been my attitude since I start basketball when I was 12, I dont want to lose.

Game continue. The opponents dont want to guard me, guessed they were scared they will hurt me or I am not in the condition to score, which is so wrong. I went into the mid court where it was empty, and a guy came over trying to steal my ball, then I make the right turnover and passed thay guy leaving him at my right-back, but just when I wanted to make a jump shoot, another guy jumped and wanted to block me. No one to pass the ball and surrounded by opponents, shit ! Think quick and make a fade-away jump shoot. Swoooopp ! The ball flawlessly entered the rim and we lead the game by 1 score, 1 more score to win the game. The last turn over I was seriously exhausted, I can't make the run with other teammates. Watching fro far, a teammate hit the run and passed to guys that are trying to block, turn around with a layout, done ~ Game won by 1 scare and that's the 4th straight games we won ~

I used to thought " How should I win the game...How should I score...What moves they can make others stunned " Now I dun care lah, as long as I can get soak in sweat and hopefully lose a few KGs after every game will do. Feels so good to get sweat but don't feel great that I can't run as fast ....

Next Game, Next Week ...

PS: This morning woke up with backache, a slight twisted ankle, aching knee and abit bit or muscle pain at the shoulder. Sign of getting old ...
