(CHEERING)

TV ANNOUNCER:
He is one

of the greatest dunkers

of our generation, Bill.

Oh, my! The mustard

is off the hot dog!

What a play from Michael Diggs.

That's 34 points for the sophomore!

Bill, this young man

has an incredible future

here, at USC.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

TV ANNOUNCER:
And that's the

game! They win it at the buzzer!

(ALL CLAMORING)

Michael, you have so

many fans here tonight!

My biggest fan is my ma.

I love you, Ma!

Lisa, I love you too!

Craig! Where Craig at?

My best friend Craig!

All right! Watch out. Gimme that.

Hey, shout out to this dude right here.

I'm so proud of you,

bro. You did your thing.

- Yeah!

- Everybody...

Y'all thought we couldn't do it,

but we did it, baby! Let's go!

It appears that Michael Diggs has

been charged with armed robbery.

The basketball phenom and USC champion

is now appearing in court.

The trial starts today for Michael Diggs,

the once huge NBA prospect, who

is now charged with armed robbery.

Michael Diggs was convicted today

of the armed robbery charge

that happened last year.

His penalty phase, it's coming up.

(GATE SQUEAKS)

There's no one here.

I didn't tell anybody.

(SIGHS)

Understood.

Can I give you a lift?

No. I'm okay. I'll do it on my own.

Have you decided what you're gonna do?

Haven't even thought that far yet.

Well, I wish you the best, Michael.

You too, Warden.

- How much?

- Three-fifty.

Oh...

- It's gone up.

- It has.

(COINS CLATTER)

Hey,

didn't you use to play basketball?

Yeah. Long time ago.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

PLAYER:
Let's go!

Where's your D at, bro?

Yeah! Yo!

Go, go, go!

(DISHES CLATTER)

(SIGHS SOFTLY)

Hi, Mama.

GEMMA:
Michael.

Why didn't you tell me you was out?

- Why didn't you...

- I didn't want to bother you.

- You just saw me last week.

- Oh, I could have met you.

Don't worry. It's okay, Mama.

You should have told

me. I would've met you.

It's okay.

You're like a changed man.

I am.

A changed man.

Praise God.

- So where's Taye?

- Taye? Well...

Your little brother, he's not doing well.

What does that mean?

He's not doing well.

Where is he?

(SIGHS)

I don't know, he's out.

Let me look at you.

You look so healthy. I

prayed every day and night.

Come on, you gonna stay

in your old bedroom.

All right, Mom. Look,

just for a time, though.

Oh, don't be silly. You gonna

stay there as long as you want.

GEMMA:
Here, son.

- Take it.

- No, Ma.

Look, I still got some money

that the prison gave me.

It's okay.

I'll make us some dinner.

No, Ma. Ma. I already ate.

Listen, I gotta go do some things,

but I'll be back, all right?

Where you going?

I gotta get a job.

(SCOFFS) That can wait. You just got out.

I'll be fine, Ma.

Don't bug me with this nonsense.

I told you already. How

many times I got to...

Hey, man, have you seen Taye around?

Michael!

I'll call you back.

- When did you get out of jail?

- Today.

Welcome home.

- Thank you, man.

- Yeah, yeah.

No, I haven't seen him.

All right. No worries. Take it easy.

(DOOR CLOSES)

Jerry, some kid slipped and fell.

Aisle 9. The mom's pretty upset.

Seriously? Did they get hurt?

Hey, listen, I gotta go

take care of this thing.

I don't have time to look at this.

Not much experience, huh?

Listen, I'd be a great worker.

Okay. We'll give it a shot.

All right. Great. When can I start?

- You can start today.

- Now?

- Yeah. Now.

- Okay.

- Enjoy your day.

- WOMAN:
You too.

Taye, man!

What up?

Yo, what's up? When did you get out?

Yesterday.

Oh, all right.

Man, I was wondering if we

could hang out after work?

I just got this new job.
