Yeah, it's crazy! My life is gonna be so different now. I'm really nervous.
Did You hear the news you got drafted to the Lakers?!
Refusal Of the Call
Son, don't worry about me. I'll be fine, and besides you've dreamed about being a NBA player your whole life.
I can't go! I don't want to leave you dad...and what if I'm not good enough?

Beginning Of The Adventure
Ahhhh I'm gonna miss my dad.
Lucas had dreamed about getting drafted into the NBA ever since he was a little kid, but now that it's happening he is extremely anxious about it. He knows that his whole life is gonna change because he has to move to California and leave his dad behind.
Road Of Trials
Why can't I make a shot? I'll never be as good as these guys.
Lucas is having second thoughts about going to the Lakers. He doesn't want to leave his dad behind, and he fears that he won't be good enough to compete with the other players.
Road Of Trials
Sorry, I'm trying...it's just that I miss my dad.
You're terrible new guy. You'll never help us win.
After contemplating for a while, Lucas is finally convinced that he should go because it's something he always wished for. He packs his bags and says goodbye to his friends and family. Lucas leaves his ordinary life and ventures into a new one, and he has no idea what to expect of it.
On Lucas's first day of practice with the Lakers, he makes a bad first impression because he can't make any of his shots. Lucas gets really frustrated and mad at himself
Since Lucas can't make his shots, his new teammates hate him, they think he'll be useless to the team. The team's best player named Caleb decides to go up to Lucas and tell him how awful he is at basketball. Lucas is having a really rough day at practice, not only will his shots not go in, but now also his new teammates hate him.
