As told to Konate Primus
Today I overslept. Apparently I got a phone call about 6:45 about some meeting we were supposed to have later that morning, but I don’t remember anything about a phone call. They told me about it after I had missed the meeting. All I remember is the phone rang, I rolled over, and I guess I knocked the phone over with my pillow, but I didn’t answer. So I ended up being late for the meeting I didn’t even know was taking place. Donte didn’t tell me anything; he didn’t wake me up. He just bounced on me. I was brushing my teeth and getting ready like it was a regular day, by the time I got downstairs I saw everybody getting up and they were like “We are done. get on the bus.” Nobody was mad at me, but I felt bad for missing the meeting.
After that, we took a bus to our practice, and did that for about 2 hours. It was a good one; it felt good mainly because I haven’t really practiced in few days. After our practice we went to the BET studios, we did 106 and Park. I think its going to air on Friday cause they did the l’il freestyle Friday jump-off. Young Buck came through, and he was cool as hell. Now we are on our way to the celebrity all-star game they are having for us. You know, dunk contest and 3 point shoot out, the usual. Should be fun. Today has been very eventful. Tonight, all of us will probably kick it in the game again, until we get kicked out like last night!
As I read everybody’s posts, I’m very happy that all you guys want me to play for your schools. Just to let you know, I appreciate all the love, but I have to do what’s best for me. I shall reveal my school in due time.
