“Dear Diary, today was a great day! Coach Vogel said I played real well! I shot the ball 11 times and made 6 of them. That’s pretty good for me, maybe here in Indianapolis people will like me better than they did in Philthydelphia. And after the game me and Gerald went to the bar by his place and we drank a lot of beer! Poor Gerald was puking all over the place, haha. Maybe tomorrow I’ll ask out that pretty dancer who always says hi to me, she’s really nice looking and now I’m a big-shot NBA player.” – Exclusive excerpt from Sam Young’s diary.
