Day three is the most important, as well as tough day at Five-star. You are not only taking part in 2 sets of stations throughout the day, but also participating in upwards of five games. It is the start of playoffs so if you win you are subject to drilling all day long while you watch your peers take the “ship”. All the pressure is on and these kids are fighting their bodies and mind telling them its time to shut it down. We truly have some gamers this session.
The first round of the playoffs looked like this:
Heat v. Spurs
Mavs v. Magic
Lakers v. Suns
Celtics v. Knicks
They were all close but the winner separated themselves late in these first round games and came out on top. The
winners of round one were the Heat, Mavs, Suns and Celtics. There were some of the best teams in camp this session and they certainly proved in the first round. The Semis paired the Heat with the Mavs and the Celtics and Suns. The Mavs and Heat had been the two best teams throughout the first two days and one of them would soon be eliminated.
The Celtics and the Mavs made it through the Semis against what everyone thought would be another Mavs championship wihtin weeks. But the Celtics has something to prove and came out with a fire. They felt that the title was theirs to lose and ended up taking it home. It was a close game down to the wire but it seemed that the Celtics just always came up with the big bucket when they needed it.(Celtics Seen Belows)
