    sneakers laced up, with my jersey tucked in
    crowd loud, screamin like the pope just jumped in
    they're blue, we're red, so u can tell the difference
    we're in our huddles, discussin game business
    its thrown in the air, spinnin bout to touch fingertips
    hit to my opponent, so i D her up like just like this
    hands up, knees bent, my goal is to stop her
    while the crowd watches me, watch her
    she dribbles to the left, passes to her teammate
    she slashes, i bump her, she's got no room to create
    they shoot, they miss, my center gets the rebound
    passes me the ball n i dribble on down
    i hit her with tha crossova, im dribblin with my left
    easy lay up, i got one more dribble then 2 steps
    they take it out, back to the position
    she dribbles up, does a hezi then passes me- but listen
    i run after her, get in front of her, keep my eyes on her stomach
    she passes to a blue jersey, sets a screne n rolls, then gets hit wit sumthin
    she scores, im determined to neva let it happen again
    get the ball pass to a red, she shoots the 3- its in
    back n forth, back in forth, tight game with tight calls
    got bruises on our knees n elbows from all those sloppy falls

    Halftime...
    tied up 35 to 35, we taken the ball out
    take a couple dribbles, then pass the ball around
    we shoot, we miss, we run back on defense
    subs come in occasionally of the bench
    coaches screamin, crowds on the edge of their seat
    we on the court talkin smack n poudin our feet
    they come down, blue takes red to tha basket
    thats aiight, good move, but i garuntee it wont happen
    -again
    back n forth, back in forth, we up by two
    our D has taken us up, u know how we do
    they shootin, its been 3 minutes since they've scored
    we got tha hot hand, so we put in 10 more
    4th quarter, we up n they're strugglin to stay in it
    this is our game now, they just playin in it
    a minute left, we up my 30
    we just clownin now, mouths dry, im madd thirsty
    the buzzer goes off, we in for victory
    how we pulled it off aint a mystery
    crowds clappin, we shakin hands, sayin "good game"
    grab our stuff, go to the lockerroom, n accept the fame

    anotha game played, tha excitement, tha energy, tha u can win, u can make drastic falls
    id have to say my passion is simple basketball.

    indeed...Basketball is a thinking game. Some folks think it's easy to be great. Basketball is my first love and believe it or not..it was my first passion before politics got involved. Basketball is 90% thinking and 10% skill...There's nothing simple about DA GAME>
    nice verse!
