Giant Moment

Unbelievable moment.
Ten men on the court.
Each bound and determined
Not to sell themselves short.

Palpable pressure.
Clock running out.
Comes down to focus;
No room for doubt.

Crowd on their feet.
Cheering, worldwide.
The brightest of stages.
There’s nowhere to hide.

Who will come through,
And make the big play?
Or, will someone miss
Because it wasn’t his day?

Whatever the case
They’ve all earned their spot.
They’re just seconds away
From the final shot.

And, in moments they’ll know
Of the story they’ll hold
For the rest of their lives,
Carrying silver or gold.
