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.

First day of a new school year

The effects of Jason's plan were visible from the start. As soon as Jason had declared that Jefferson would win the State title and make a deep run at Nationals it caught the attention of multiple different media outlets.

Everything from mainstream consumer media down to social media, the biggest story was about Jason and his overbearing declaration of confidence in both himself and his team.

Soon the story of Tyreek decommitting from UCR and instead deciding to go to UCLA became old news as no one was interested in talking about it.

Overnight Jason's already high popularity surged to even greater heights as the followers that he had on his social media account soared to 2.5 million people.

In the days that ensued it was impossible for him to walk outside of his apartment without being recognized.
