So this was the end ol his basketball career The old man had dumped him, used him for an example in some crazy moral lesson. So he had broken training a few times. Other guys did. But who had scored the points when they were needed? Les Beach, that's who But, no, Raines had called him a ball hog...self-centered, conceited, biggity, headline hunter...
The way Les Beach sees it, everyone has it in for him because he comes from the wrong side of town. He doesn t realize that he brings many of his troubles upon himself, and he will fight at the scrape of a shoe. Only his fierce love for the game and the interest of a few special people make him swallow his pride to get back on the team, but even then it takes some doing to knock the chip off his shoulder.
