"Ms. Sarah, watch this!"
"Hold on Nick, I'm watching Patrick defy gravity by spinning the ball for about an eighth of a rotation, but I'm making a pretty big deal of it."
"Look at this Ms. Sarah! Watch!"
"Hold on DeAngelo, I'm watching Nick bounce the basketball with extreme concentration and then sort of dribble it through his legs and lose control of it most times but sometimes he gets it and is very proud."
"Look at me! Look at me!"
"Hold on Lucas, I'm watching DeAngelo's ultra fancy leg-over-ball dribbling."
