Storyboard Text

  • Why isn't he passing? I'm wide open
  • Two kids named James (in red, grade 8) and Joel (in green, grade 6) played for their elementary school basketball team. Joel is very skilled however being a young, naive eighth grader, he was very cocky and didn't understand the importance of teamwork especially during the teams first few practices
  • James being the best player on the team was scoring majority of the teams points in their first few games however the team was losing due to him not sharing the ball during offensive possessions and choosing to slack on defense. He also started to skip practices as he believed that he didn't need to practice.
  • While James was displaying bad work ethic and unsportsmanship during the course of the season, Joel was putting his best effort into learning the plays, and improving his overall skillset. This definately did not go unnoticed, the coaches were seeing improvement and further potential in Joel.
  • Great hustle Joel!
  • Despite James being the best scorer on the team, he spent most of the playoffs on the bench becuase they were last seeded and the coaches thought that since Joel improved his shooting, defense, and is a good teammate, the team can do better if he leads
  • I should be out there
  • Good job Joel!
  • Even though the team was last seeded in he playoffs, they ended up finishing third in regionals thanks to Joel's incredible leadership. The coaches and players except for James were very proud. James could not feel proud because he did not contribute to the team, instead he felt regret. He promised himself to be humble for when he plays for the highschool team the next year.
