The Winning Shot?

This was no different than every other time.

Develop a routine. It will help you in the rough spots.” I could hear Coach in my mind.

I had a routine. Three dribbles. A firm two-handed grasp. Lift my arms. Align the elbow. Stroke and release.

Behind the backboard it was bedlam. Stomping, Screaming. Even three metallic whirly-jigs.

I had seen them the last time I was here.

I knew the score. Overtime was inevitable- unless I made this shot.

“Just visualize. Visualize.”

So I shut my eyes. Three dribbles. Grasp. Align. Push. Stroke.

Suddenly, there was incredible silence.
