The Big Injury
Mike, Jordan and Chris were trying
out for the street ball tournament. Mike was the best on the team. People
called him like mike. He had sweet moves and passes and that helped them go to
the game before the champion ship.
It was all tied up and mike squared
up with his defender. Mike did a behind the back pass to Jordan in his
hot spot. And Jordan
was ready. He squared up his feet and shot a beautiful bank shot. “ASSIST’’!
Mike yelled. Game-On is going to the champion ship. Mikes team was called
had 5 points, 2 rebounds and two assist. Chris had 5 points 2 rebounds and one
assist, and Mike had 11 points 3 rebounds and 8 assist.
Every day they will practice and
practice for the big game coming up in 3 weeks. Then something bad happened.
Mike went up for a rebound and landed the wrong way. Awwwwww! “My ankle hurts’’
Mike groaned. “Can you walk Chris ask’’. No Mike replied. Get in the car Jordan
and Chris Mikes mom said. Mikes mom picked him up, and putted him in the car.
Mom drove them to the hospital. Luckily, Mike had crunches from the last time
he broke his ankle. They walked into the jersey shore hospital and demanded a
room right a way. My son has a broken ankle. They put mike in a wheel chair and
rushed him to the X-ray room. The doctor took him to his room where Mom, Jordan
Chris was waiting. He has a broken ankle the doctor explained. “How did this
happen’’ he ask. Well I was playing basketball and I guest I landed the wrong
way. ‘’I see’’. How long until he will recover Chris ask. About four weeks. But
I have a street ball champion ship game in two weeks Mike explained. Well the
only way you can recover faster is to extrusive and take medicine. Ok good.
When they left the hospital Jordan and Chris went home and Mike extrusive his
ankle. Every day it got easier and easier to move it. Then in a week, he went
to the gym with Jordan and Chris. The gym ha light blue walls and had weights
and trammels. He went on the trammel and tried it. It kept hurting but he never
gave up. Then he tried it one more time and he could walk better. He turned it
up a little and he could run again. Jordan and Chris was surprise but proud.
Mike goes back to the doctors and they said it’s a miracle he recovered in 9
days. They took his x ray and there is no crack. For 2 days, he rested his
ankle for the big game. Friday morning they headed over to the court. Fans were
everywhere. The other team was already practicing. The game was about to start.
It was a good game so fair. 20-20 make the best team win. Mike checked the ball
up and passed it to Jordan.
This is a big game because who ever wins gets there name on the hall of fame. Jordan passed
to Chris. The person stole from him and missed the lay up. The crowed was
dying. Mike got the rebounded and passed it back to Chris and he shot it. It
bounced of the rim then swish. Game-on wins! The crowed was going wild. There
parents were so proud. They had a party and Jordan and Chris slept over. In
about a week they had there names on the hall of fame. Mike, Jordan
and Chris 2004 champions.
