Dear basketball,To the successful adult athlete I will never be, I’m sorry to tell you that you won’t exist. Eventhough I really want you to exist, some things are never really meant to happen. I had my flaws, and no matter how much I loved the game, the game didn’t love me back. The flaws kept me down to rock bottom. The hopeful kid back then realized how unfair things would be. I know in myself that I could’ve made you a reality, but the game’s heart wasn’t focused on me. You hated losing & you’ll do whatever it takes to win. You loved the pain and you loved the criticism. You were an optimist — a hopeful little kid that wanted to play the game all that you could. It was all because of a dream, a dream of making it into the big leagues, and so it remained as a dream. But despite of everything, of being not good enough to play this kind of sports, from the moment I started touching the dirty ball coming from the ground, I knew one thing was real — I fell in love with you. A love so deep I gave you my all — from my mind, body, to my spirit & soul. As a twelve year old girl deeply in love with you, I never saw the end of the this. I did everything for you because that’s what you do. But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer. This season is all I have left to give. My body can take the pain, my mind can handle the grind but my journey here knows it’s time to say goodbye. And that’s okay, I’m ready to let you go. I want you to know now, so we can both savor every moment we have left together; the good and the bad. We have given each other all that we have. And we both know, no matter what I do next, I will always be that kid aiming to be the best but did not succeed, but still thankful that I had the opportunity to play you, to play basketball. :05 seconds in the clockBall in my hands… 5…4…3…2…1… Love you always,Castillo wearing jersey number 4/19,Signing off
