"Nets," Anthony De La Rosa, 11th Grade, P169

My favorite team, The New Jersey Nets

Early on, sadly slumping, losing sucks

Loyal fans, lay down money, lose their bets

Yell at players, during games, “Earn your bucks!”

Fatigued, frustrated, I still watch the games

Rookies trying hard to impress their coach

Vets miss easy shots, hang their heads in shame

How to turn the tide? Who do we approach?

Kidd? Carter? Jefferson? One or all three?

Success will come, and here is the reason

We have talent and we have chemistry

We are destined for a good post season

First they must play well. They must not throw bricks

In fact, it could be worse. They could be Knicks.
