I AM BASKETBALL

I AM COMPETITIVE AND FOCUSED

I wonder what college athletics is like

I hear ankles crack becuase the dude got crossed

I see a "Gold" Ball

I want a state championship

I AM COMPETITIVE AND FOCUSED

 

I pretend to hit a game winning shot

I feel numb

I touch greatness

I worry about the game

I cry at the end of the season

I AM COMPETITIVE AND FOCUSED

 

I understand the game

I say what's on my mind

I dream of being a state champ

I try extremely hard

I hope to be a state champ

I AM COMPETITIVE AND FOCUSED
