There’s nothin’ like high school basketball bruh! Especially in the state of Indiana! It’s king out here!!! So durin’ this time of year (holidays) there is enough hoop to watch to make you sick. On Friday I ran over to Manual High School to check out the girlz in the 2nd Annual Shavonte Zellous Holiday Jam! So on Saturday you already know that I had to check out the boyz get it in at the 3rd Annual Manual Extravaganza!

Check this out bruh…games started at 8am and the last tip off wasn’t until 9:30pm!!! NUTS!!!! If you’re a high school hoop fan then this was the place to be. Now I couldn’t watch every one of those games but I did hang around for three of them.

Everybody and their baby’s momma knows that I’m from “The G” so I stopped by to see the lil’ homies from Gary’s Lighthouse College Prep Academy play a team full of studs from Warren Central. Bruh…Warren walked into the joint with a bus load of pure athletes that operate on an entirely different level.They picked Lighthouse’s pockets so much that they had visible finger prints on their waists by the time the game was over.

The homies from The G turned the rock over 25 times and got the brakes beaten off of them 95-46. I know that they had two or three cats out because of disciplinary reasons but that’s the way it goes bruh. You can only play with who’s suited and booted right? Next time boyz will be take this thing we call basketball seriously when they get on the road.

The second game I watch featured the beast, Eric Hunter Jr., from Indianapolis Tindley and Fort Wayne Homestead. Ole boy is on his way to Purdue and they’re gettin’ at complete stud in this kid. He put up 42 points on Friday night against Lawrence Central so the hype met him at the front door at Manual.

Homestead didn’t let him get loose because they could shoot the three and played great defense. Now don’t get it twisted, he still got his 19 points and got off an old school Yoke on a boy. He just didn’t “butt naked show out” but he clowned well enough to let a boy know he was in the buildin’. I can’t say it enough bruh, he’s as smooth as silk and he’s got crazy bounce!!!

If you don’t know what I mean by that then you shouldn’t even be readin’ this joint. I supply you with a “Playas Thesaurus” after every Hot Joint but “bounce” I’m not definin’. Naw bruh, not today.

Then the all-everything stud from Fort Wayne North, Keion Brooks, and Company played Cathedral. The hype is so loud surroundin’ the 6’9″ junior that boyz piled into the gym just to see him. However, Cathedral put that thang on he and his boyz beatin’ them 65-56.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The dun got out-worked by Cathedral!! Plain and simple. They weren’t playin’ around either. They didn’t care about the hype or the rankin’ behind his name. The Irish showed up and showed out. While Keion was shootin’ threes and tryin’ to show us that he could play on the perimeter they were takin’ it right to him.

Duns like Jayden Edwards and Jarron Coleman acted like they didn’t even know who he was bruh. As a matter of fact, Jayden Yoked on him and kept it movin’. Ole boy spent way too much time beggin’ for the ball on the perimeter instead of takin’ over the game with his amazin’ athletic ability. He was the tallest cat on the floor and seemed to be allergic to the blocks. I’m just sayin’! Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) The G: noun – Gary, Indiana

2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

3) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

4) Yoke: verb – to dunk with authority on a boy.

5) Butt Naked Show Out: verb phrase – to completely get loose on a boy, score crazy points from everywhere on the floor.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
