Rebound: A 2nd Chance

“I'll just force them to recognize and respect the blood and sweat that I'm dripping on the hardwood. Because I don't hold anything back. I leave everything out on the court." -Jason Yang. Ever since one fateful moment Jason had been hooked to basketball. The phrase “Ball is life” couldn’t be anymore true for Jason. He wasn’t born with any god given talent nor did he posses the body of a natural born athlete. The only thing Jason could rely on was his unbreakable will. But after ten years of not being able to make the jump to the professional level doubts begin to crawl into Jason’s mind for the first time. Just as he was at a turning point in his life Jason dies only to find that he has woken up twenty years in the past. Can he utilize his years of experience and the skills he developed as a collegiate player to make it to the professional level in this second chance at life? - - - Updates: I try for one chapter a day but sometimes life happens.

A New Development

With the second quarter about to begin Jason switched defensive assignments with Nick. Although this would have Nick giving up a bit of size to Dominion's reserve Small Forward it would at least place him in a more passive defensive role compared to if he had to defend Devin.

Right off the bat, Dominion started the action off with Devin as they inbounded the ball to him. Whether as a sign of confidence or for more strategic reasons Jason began guarding him at full court.

He couldn't take a single dribble without Jason being right there, putting pressure on him as he smothered him.

Devin placed his body between Jason and the ball as he began to dance in an attempt to create space. Spin move, hard stop into a crossover, between the legs.

But with each move Jason responded accordingly, shuffling his feet, chopping his steps, and rotating his hips, playing tough physical defense while avoiding any fouls.
