I have been away from a computer for like 10 weeks so it's not my fault i haven't updated. This past week i have been down in santa barbara for a basketball camp which was easily the hardest thing i have ever been too and i am the sorest i have ever been. We had to wake up at 5:30 and didn't get to sleep til midnight. All of the coaches pushed us past our limit everyday. Some of the coaches there were clete adelman, rick adelmans brother who is the coach of the houston rockets, and jeff van gundy's dad who was like a billion years old. We also had Gilbert Arena's shooting coach and then there were a bunch of college and high school coaches working there including my own. It was really cool though because i was on the team that won the entire camp championship. We went 4-0 and won every game by like 30. Me and this kid Jon averaged like 15 pts a game and we became pretty good friends. The last day was the cuthroat tournament which is a crazy 4 on 4 on 4 on 4 kinda game with 16 teams of four that is super hard to explain. I ended up winning that too with my friend marc on my team some kid from france and another kid from cabrillo. The cuthroat thing is a huge deal at that camp and it was awesome winning my first time. There were kids there that had been to that camp and had never even been to the championships. My coach was soooooo happy and proud of marc and i. This snow valley camp is like his life and for two of his players to be the cuthroat champions is a big deal for him. I went to santa cruz the say after camp with my friend Anthony and we stayed in a beach house. I got back today and so now i'm gonna go to sleep for a couple days.
