Late Whistle, A Basketball Fairy Tale

by Charlie d’Estries

When I was a little kid, I loved basketball. I remember I use to pretend I was at the foul line, crowds cheering, no time left on the clock (always), and a chance to win the NCAA championship game; I won a lot of championships that way. If you have that kind of imagination, you’ll love this story.

Take 7 little boys, an old coach, some rough times and tough love, and you have the elements of an interesting story. The boys became the best high school basketball team in the country, all highly recruited for big-time basketball colleges, but the streets of a big city got them into trouble. None of them went to college to follow their dreams, several went to prison. The coach moved to a small D-1 school to coach at the college level. But when, 20 years later, their old coach was given an ultimatum, the boys, now men pushing 40, decide to help him out and play for him. To save his job, they must reach the NCAA tournament â?? no small feat for this ragtag bunch â?? but once again the ugly memories of their youth reappear. Do they make it to the NCAA tournament? And if they do, how far do they go?

If you like a good yarn, this one is worth reading. The story unfolds slowly, like the flavors of a good bourbon, but patience is well rewarded. Please let me know your thoughts at… and thanks for reading my story. Charlie d’Estries
