Open Court

Anytime, Lebron. One-on-one, my driveway. You don't stand a chance. I have the ultimate home court advantage. I know every bump of this misshapen cement. How the ball bounces down the slope. The feel of the cool wind on my hands, the way to shoot when it gusts. There's no softwood floor, no heated gym, no trainer to wrap your tender knees. No pampering an NBA sissy.

Just you and me.
