The Durantula

This is how the story of the Durantula begins (by Dalen, grade 8).

My rocks name is The Durantula. He plays for the Oklahoma Town Lightning/OKT. He is the leading scorer in the National Basketball League/NBL. He is the youngest NBL player to win a scoring title. His arch-nemesis is Lebrock James, who is the best forward in the league.

The Durantula can pass, but man can he shoot. He is said to be one of the best shooters in the NBL. Lebrock James is better because of his passing and defense.

Durantula is very lonely and needs a friend. He is playful, truthful, and nice (unless Lebrock James is around). He would really like to be your friend, will you be his?

To be continued…


The Durantula (GSD11) is part of a series of monster rocks created by students of Gideon School District in Missouri. We invite you to visit all GSD rocks and submit your comments and feedback, it will be much appreciated.

  1. I think I’ve heard of Labrock James but I thought he played Brocketball! 😉 Keep on rockin’, Durantula! There will be a good friend come your way…

  2. Basketball is an awesome sport! Did he play high school and college ball, as well? Sometimes people who are so great at sports have a little trouble finding true friends because others may be jealous of their talent. Hang in there, I’m sure he will find a friend very soon!
