I get the ball in the paint without hesitation posted at the square like a street light. The point guard sees me yet there is no eye contact. As the Power Forward comes toward me to set the pick,  in a burst I cut to the basket, with in a instant I put the brakes on and cut back. The 6’8″ frame of my pick slaps my opponent with the force of an 18 wheeler- the sweat is like glass shattering!  I mad dash to the 3 point line the point guard sees me on the cut at the same time I go to set to pull up I feel it- the ball is there all in rotation I set for my jumper but as I start my progress rotation of the defense occurs. Breathing heavily I pump to go for the Jumper its to late he is there leaving his feet as I cross the ball to my left taking off with right foot first it seemed like a slow motion in a ESPN highlight reel to the same place YES! The square! Where I started out from. My left foot of my S.M.I.L.E. shoe touches and I lift off like a eagle, call me Michael Jordan NO! call Me Ralan! As I rise higher the rim becomes closer and closer the flicker of the cameras, the crowd, my team mates all become blocked out I hear nothing in my head but R. Kelly‘s I believe I can fly! As I cock the ball back to shatter the back board. RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIng You woke up! Welcome to ELLAMENTAL  S.M.I.L.E. oooOHMmmm
