Maybe it’s my own fault. Maybe I led you to believe it was easy, when it wasn’t. Maybe I made you think my highlights started at the free throw line instead of at the gym. Maybe I made you think every shot I took was a game winner, that my game was built on flash and not fire. Maybe it’s my fault that you didn’t see that failure gave me strength, that pain was my motivation. Maybe I led you to believe that basketball was a God given gift and not something I worked for every single day of my life. Maybe I destroyed the game. Maybe you’re just making excuses.
