In my Junior year, I had a lot of things going on in my life. At first, my parents told me that they are moving to atlanta, but thought I would want to stay in Ohio. I was surprised because I had my mind set on graduating with the people who have known me since we were in the third grade. I gladly accepted but really missed my family as I was living at my best friend's house for the rest of the year.
The next thing that basketball got me through was when I kicked off my varsity team for complaining about only getting garbage time when I thought I was the best player on the team. I was depressed and only basketball filled the emptiness that I was feeling at that point in my life.
Then, I realized that due to my immigration status I couldnt get a drivers license, or a job. That further made me feel like crap, but with the ball in my hand, I made it through and it never failed to make me feel better. After accepting that and moving on, I got a girl friend. I mean, she wasnt my usual catch, but she really made me feel good.
Next thing I know, I get a sinus infection and sprain my knee in the same month. I miss about a week and a half of school, my grades fall drastically, and since that year we missed a lot of school due to snow, the teachers were teaching at a super fast pace. In other words, I was screwed. I missed most of the most important lessons during my time out of school and when I came back, it was just too late. My algebra teacher looked at me and said," Things just arent working for you this year".He said that I would have to get a 98 on the final to pass the class. Basketball alleviated the pressure I was feeling about having to do the near impossible to pass the class.
Later that month(April), I get called over the PA to come to the office. I get suspended off the bus for throwing a grape. No vine, just a grape. The principal even managed to say this with a straight face,"You could have poked someone's eye out". I involuntarily said that this was stupid and he was only doing this because of all the stuff I was accused of that he couldnt pin on me in past years. He told me to get out. NEXT WEEK, I get called to the office once again, and the principal says that I am getting kicked out of school because I dont live with my parents and I am under 18. At lunch, he comes up to me and says that he will let me finish the year but after that, I cannot be a student here anymore. After telling my GF that I am moving away for good, she becomes erratic, asking me why and trying to figure out various scenarios about how I can stay. I thought it was funny as hell after a while. Then she says," Why dont we just get married?". <--- That is my reaction, thinking its a joke. She isnt laughing, and says,"No, I am serious." I almost pissed my pants and tell her I dont think that's a good idea and we are underage anyways. She tells me that as long as our parents okay it, its legal in Ohio. I leave her house and tell her I have to think about it. That whole day, I played basketball while my freedom hung in the balance. It was my sanctuary and helped me stay sane. Or else I might have said yes.
On top of that, this year, the friend who I lived with during that time died. That was a very huge loss in my life. I spent my last dime to go his funeral, and basketball is helping me get though it. I always said, I play ever game like its my last and now that has a real meaning to me.
EDIT: Dont be afraid to post guys.
I can get really deep when I feel like it.

Nah, its not that, just his tendency to whip out his penis when he is around his players. That's all.
Seriously, he's denied the accusations a few times aswell....
Even after his Itruewarrior got banned, he created a Rocketgreatness account and PM'd me to Rep him...He said..."Its me ITrueWarrior, rep me bro"....So I repped him...Then a few weeks later in a thread he was trolling, I called him out about his other accounts and he denied it to the fullest...
Same with me but it was a really pathetic PM, so I started a thread on it in here and he said "Man I was just trying to be your friend, I know alot of you guys dont like me but whatever" So I felt bad and deleted the post that I had the PM in, still got the PM though.
