The NBA’s Rocky Rubio

This is how the story of Rocky Rubio begins (by Allen, grade 7).

Hello, my name is Rocky Rubio.  I am a proud member of the Minnesota Timberwolves NBA basketball team.  Besides playing in the NBA, I enjoy playing pick up games with my teammates and watching ESPN.  I am originally from Spain.  I lived there as a kid and played in the Spanish basketball league there.  That is how I was discovered and drafted into the NBA.

Life as a normal rock isn’t easy.  Normal rocks can’t be seen moving, talking or anything.  The special ones, like me, have an amazing talent at something and become famous.  Being a famous rock is fun.  You get to fly around the world , buy anything you want, do whatever you want, live in a big house, and nobody steps on you or anything,  There are a couple of other famous rocks you may know.  There is Derrock Rose, Chris Rock, Rocky Balboa, Lebrock James, Rajon Rocko, and many more.

I love being a rock.  There are some down sides to being a rock though. You’re always the smallest guy around, you’re looked down on, and you are usually forgotten at places (especially at the park).  There are some good things about it though. You are really good at hide and go seek, you can’t be hurt that bad, and many other things.

I love being able to play in the NBA.  The guys are awesome and supportive all the time.  I’m thankful for everything that God has given me and I hope God blesses you in many ways.
